This team is responsible for managing our district campsite – Barnswood.
The team ensure it is welcoming, running safely and remains a special place that Scout Groups both locally and from afar want to keep coming back to.

Check out our Barnswood pages to see what we have to offer – it’s a truly special place.

Campsite Team Members

District Campsite Team Lead : Mark Eden

Mark heads up our campsite team, one of our largest assets (after our people!) in our District and a place where so many positive memories are made.

Contact him with suggestions for the development of Barnswood or if you would like to volunteer to help (Warden Team, Maintenance Team or in any other way).

District Campsite Administrator : Diana Stafford

Diana supports the campsite by managing bookings enquiries and coordinating our warden coverage.
Contact her if you have concerns about your online booking.

District Campsite Safety Lead : Geoff Smith

Geoff is responsible for ensuring that all the facilities on the campsite are well maintained and that regular safety checks are carried out.
Contact him if you see anything that needs fixing.

District Campsite Book-keeper : Adrienne King

Adrienne takes care of all our campsite financial transactions – paying bills, invoicing customers and groups and making sure we account for everything in line with charity commission guidelines.

Contact her if you need a bill paying, wish to donate or think a bill is incorrect.

District Campsite Media Lead: Harvey Evans

Harvey runs all our public communications.
Contact him with any suggestions or opportunities for publicity you are aware of, or need help with.

District Campsite Wardens

A number of our Scouting Volunteers also help out with providing warden cover at the site at weekends.
Wardens are there to welcome campers and visitors to the site, help with enquiries and emergencies, and to keep things running smoothly for our guests.     It’s a great way to spend a weekend in a peaceful rural setting, surrounded by nature and watching Scouting at it’s best – outdoors!
