Thank you also to all those who supported us, we raised over 300 euros to be split between CEL and 1st Stuttgart Rainbows/Brownies/Guides … and welcome to those new members who signed up on Saturday! Come and see us again at CEL soon.

Pre-ordered cookies and cakes will be available for collection on the day. There will also be other cakes and delights made by the girls to eat at CEL with a cup of coffee or tea
