Chris first joined the Scout Movement at 6 years old when he was invested into the 9th North Watford as a Beaver Scout. He continued to be invovled as a young person through through both other sections - Cubs and Scouts.

As a Scout. he achieved the highest award possible at the time, the Chief Scout's Award, as well as the rare achievement of also earning the Chief Scout's Challenge badge with other members of the Troop. Chris then went on to Alpha Venture Scouts, one of two Venture Scout Units in Watford North Scout District at the time.

Chris became an Assistant Scout Leader at the 9th North Watford in October 2007, where he helped run the Troop and offer everyday adventure for up to 40 young people. After eight years as an Assistant Scout Leader, he moved to the younger Cub Scouts section where he became 'Akela', with full responsibility for running the Pack for the young people who attended every week. Following this, in September 2016 he took a step back from front-line Scouting and instead became Secretary and a Trustee of the Scout Group.

Alongside these roles, Chris took on the additional responsibility of being the Media Development Manager for Watford North Scout District, helping to raise the profile of Scouting locally and encourage adults and young people to get involved and join the everyday adventure!

Chris has also developed free WordPress website themes to help other Scout Groups in the UK have a presence online.
Chris has become a keen runner and (almost) a fitness enthusiast over the first few years, after deciding to get fitter and using a "couch to 5k" iPhone app called Zombies, Run! 5k Training and ran his first full 5k in August 2013 at 37 minutes.

For his first running competition, he took part in the 2015 London Triathlon as a relay team with his dad and older brother (raising money for the 9th North Watford Scout Group) - Chris obviously ran the 10k final leg rather than swimming 1.5k or cycling 40k! As a team, the triathlon was completed in 3 hours, 2 minutes and 34 seconds - just missing the 3 hour target on the hottest day of the year! They did this again in 2016, beating three hours!

Chris is now running twice a week (where possible) and can easily run 10k in under an hour (with a personal best of under 55 minutes) and, in order to work towwards his fitness goals, Chris also regularly attends the gym, working with a Personal Trainer to develop his health and fitness.
