Today, Scouts from 3rd Washington took to the streets of Concord to bring some festive cheer to local shoppers. Members of the Group joined local church members and friends from St. Andrews. Chris and Andrew Turnbull's brass skills were instrumental in leading the singing despite the sub-zero temperatures.

After the Christmas rendition, Scouts and their leaders served hot tea and toast to warm up the hardy 'choir'.

A fun morning was enjoyed by everyone, once again reinforcing the group's presence at Christmas in our community.

Malcolm Glass, a steward at St. Andrews Church later wrote to thank the Scout Group for their help;

They were very welcome indeed to the frozen group of singers and band members who braved the elements. Please thank all those who in any way contributed to Saturday’s success. St Andrews are very proud of the association between themselves and the uniformed organizations that meet in our church and the leaders  do a fantastic job with these young people. May we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year where we hope the work with the young people goes from strength to
