Introducing our new Deputy Scottish Chief Commissioners!

We’re excited to announce Gail Fox and Carol Morwood have both been appointed Deputies to Scottish Chief Commissioner Moira McKenna. The new team start in September and shared why they are excited to get going:

Moira says: “I’m really looking forward to taking on this new challenge as Girlguiding Scotland’s chief commissioner and I’m delighted to be joined by two brilliant deputies – Carol Morwood and Gail Fox.

“Carol and Gail have helped thousands of girls join in the fun and adventure through a wide range of roles at a county, Scottish and even International level and I’m really looking forward to working with them both to support our volunteers and give girls even more opportunities.”

Carol Morwood is currently a leader with the 198A Guides and has volunteered in a wide range of roles at county, Scottish, UK and International level.

She says: “I’m delighted to be taking on this new role as deputy Scottish chief commissioner. Being a part of Girlguiding Scotland has offered me more adventures than I could have ever imagined when I joined as a Brownie age 7!

“As a Guide leader, I’ve had the chance to see hundreds of girls grow in confidence and realise their potential. I’ve even had the chance to travel around the world and support leaders in Ghana to develop new experiences for girls in their country.

“I’m really looking forward to this latest challenge, especially getting to meet even more of our brilliant young members and adult volunteers across Scotland.”

Gail Fox is a Leader with the 1st Tweedbank Guides and was the county commissioner for Girlguiding Tweed Valley.

She says: “I’m thrilled to be taking on this new role as deputy Scottish chief commissioner and to work with Carol and Moira to grow and develop all we do for girls.

“As a young member and an adult volunteer Girlguiding Scotland has offered me so many opportunities to take on new challenges, gain new skills and make lifelong friends. From taking my girls on unforgettable adventures like white-water rafting in Switzerland to seeing the pride on girls’ faces when they make their promise for the first time – being a Leader is hugely rewarding.

“I’ve also enjoyed taking on leadership roles in my county and at a Scottish level and can’t wait to start this latest challenge. It’s great to be part of a fantastic team and I’m really looking forward to working with all our members to help create even more excitement for girls across Scotland.”
