Jaco Mare (DC)
Jaco joined the Thames Ridge District team in 2018 as DDC – Adult Support and stepped into the role of DC in 2019. Before this Jaco was GSL for a Group in Didcot and was instrumental in the expansion of this group to offer scouting to more of the young people in Didcot. Jaco became involved in scouting when his children joined their local scout group and have been involved ever since. The whole Mare family is now involved in scouting. Jaco is originally from South Africa and can usually be found next to the fire or behind the “braai” (BBQ).
