Wayne Bulpitt was appointedĀ as theĀ UK Chief Commissioner in May 2009, having been in Scouting since the age of 8. After an incredible term holding the position of UKCC, he's now stepping down and passing the role over onto his deputy Tim Kidd. At a ceremony yesterday hosted at the end of the 90th anniversary of Gilwell Reunion, the handover ceremony for the role of UK Chief Commissioner took place between these two heroes of Scouting. After a tearful farewell to Wayne, Tim took to the stage with his usual air of barely suppressed cheerfulness, and showed in his opening speech just why he is the best choice in the whole of UK ScoutingĀ to follow on from Wayne Bulpitt.
