Geoff has been part of the scout movement in Staffordshire for many years. He is a committed and dedicated leader taking young venture scouts all over the world. He tirelessly gives up his time and energy to local young people encouraging and supporting them. Through his two employment roles he also works in a supportive way : working with disaffected young people for a local employment agency and (ii) through his own business as a carpenter/DIY man is in touch with elderly local residents and families often delivering over and above what is asked or paid for. Every community needs a Geoff Wheat. He is a fantastic role model for young people, friend to many and colleague.
