Area Team

Clwyd – pronounced “cloo-id” – is the Scout area which covers the unitary authorities of Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham in north east Wales. At the last census we had 3,065 members.

Our location is shown by the purple area on the map below.

The person who is responsible for supporting scouting in Clwyd Area is the area commissioner, Jake Myatt. The area commissioner is the ‘line manager’ of the district commissioners and reports to the chief commissioner of wales.

Jake is supported by a team of people who, together with the district commissioners, make up the area team.

Area Exec

Just like all groups and districts, the area has to have an executive committee. This is a business committee whose function is to support scouting in Clwyd Area.

Its meetings, held 4 times a year, are attended by:

  • its chairman, secretary and treasurer
  • the area commissioner
  • an elected representative from each District
  • the chairman of the Gladstone Centre committee
  • the area’s representative to the committee of the Welsh Scout Council
  • an under-25 representative
  • Other members can be nominated by the area commissioner and also can be co-opted, as the committee feels necessary.


Scout groups are organised into districts, which are led by a district commissioner who supports scouting in the district and who is the ‘line manager’ of the group scout leaders.

We have approximately sixty Scout groups in four districts.

The districts are Flintshire, Llangollen, Vale of Clwyd and Wrexham. The map below shows the districts in Clwyd.
