The town of Antrim is located 18 miles North West of Belfast on the shore of Lough Neagh at its North East corner. Belfast International airport at Aldergrove is just 3 miles South of the town. Antrim & District covers the towns of Antrim, Randalstown, Templepatrick, Aldergrove and Crumlin and is one of four districts in County Antrim.
We have nine scout groups in the district -
The district has a web site at
This web site is for groups in the district to post their own web pages. It has a message board and photo albums. There is also a chat room for real time chat. Unfortunately only members of our community may post messages and photographs and use the chat room. If you would like to join us in the community you can do that from the front page of the community but you will need to identify who you are when you ask to join or your application may be denied.
As the new District Commissioner I am keen to improve communication in the district and will be encouraging new methods of communicating. I will be developing a district newsletter and will be encouraging all members in the district to use email and our district web community. We will post a district calandar and an electronic version of our newsletter within the community pages. I would encourage members to keep in touch with me and let me know what they are doing. I will be doing my best to try and visit all groups as often as I can manage.
