Petworth & Pulborough
Our District



Scouting wouldn't be much fun if you operated in isolation. Sometimes it is good to get together with nearby groups for activities and competitions.

Together, several groups make up a District, led by the District Commissioner (DC) and a team of Assistant District Commissioners (ADC). A number of districts in turn make up a County, with a County Commissioner (CC) and a team of Assistant County Commissioners (ACC).
