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.

A big thank you goes to WVC Service Centre for hosting Puma Troop and helping them to do their Mechanics Badge. They learned about basic car maintenance, how to change a tyre and what happens at an MOT test. It was great to do this at a professional garage!

The scouts really enjoyed climbing and swinging on the high ropes this week at this custom built activity centre. #ItsNotAllAboutTyingKnots (Well, we must confess, quite a lot of knot tying was necessary for this activity, but not by our scouts!)

Scouts went canoeing and kayaking at Addlestone this week. Needless to say nearly everyone got wet. #ItsNotAllAboutTyingKnots

The Scouts (and one Cub) cycled from the London Eye to the Activity Centre in Byfleet, in aid of the Matthew Hackney Foundation, along the Rivers Thames and Wey. An amazing feat of leg power, endurance and positive attitude. Well done to everyone, a great achievement! #ItsNotAllAboutTyingKnots
