The 5th Keilor Scout Group is helping people get ready for the Christmas season, by selling Christmas trees.

The group are selling the trees across three weekends, while they will also be at the Taylors Lakes Bunnings night market.

Fundraising co-ordinator Erin Potter said the tree selling was the group’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

They use the money raised to help lower fees and keep the maintenance of their equipment and hall up-to-date.

“We do it every year,” she said. “We get the repeat business of people going back every year.

“We get the scouts and cubs out and also sell tree stands.”

People can pick up their trees from Airport West or the group delivers to select suburbs, including Tullamarine, Keilor, Keilor North and Keilor Park.

People can also pay for Christmas tree disposal.

The scout group will be at 300 Fullarton Road, Airport West on November 27 and 28, December 4 and 5, and December 11 and 12, between 8.30am and 3.30pm.

They will also be at Taylors Lakes Bunnings on December 9, between 6pm and 8pm.

Pre-ordering a tree is recommended to avoid disappointment.
