The SPLs/APLs and 2 other Scouts joined the leaders in giving away the lovely decorated Gingerbread Biscuits and either Hot Chocolate or Tea/Coffee for a charitable donation.
Lots of local residents came over to support the 1st Byfleet Scout Group Stall, and commented on how well the Gingerbread Biscuits were decorated.
This was the first time we had a stall at the Grand Unveiling of the Byfleet Christmas Lights and hope to do the same again next year.
