The Region's Chief Commissioner has announced her new Team. Laura Cottey will be joined by two Deputy Chief Commissioners - Racheal Tattum from Dorset, and Olivia Cox who guides in both Somerset and Hampshire East. You will be able to find out more about Racheal and Olivia in the Region's July Newsletter.*
In the meantime, the Chief Commissioner Team have launched their own Twitter account @GGSWEChiefTeam . They hope Leaders will pass this information on to their Units so that girls along with their parents and carers can also stay more closely in touch with Laura, Racheal and Olivia.
