P.A.N.T.S Explorer Scout Unit

P.A.N.T.S ESU is formed of all members that are 14-18 years old from all the groups within the district, hence the name P.A.N.T.S (Pinxton, Alfreton, {South} Normanton, Tibshelf and Somercoates).

Explorer units are generally very different from the other sections within the Scouting Organisation as the Explorers within the groups tend to be trusted with more responsibilites. This is because the relationship between the Explorers and Leaders is very co-operative and inclusive.

Rather than the Leaders organising the programme for the unit individually, they often seek counsel from the Explorers with in the unit, and this is especially present with Alfreton District.

Our Leaders within P.A.N.T.S ESU value our input into the running of the group, even going so far as to designate treasurers and a chairperson to help make executive decisions. The Leaders are also very open and willing to listen any problems or advice you have for how things are run within the Unit.

P.A.N.T.S ESU is led by Darren Melling (DESL) and Adi Marriot (ADESL)
