Recently a house painters’ firm operated in our neighbourhood under the name J&J. Two English speaking, smooth-talking gentlemen. They asked an advance and did a moonlight flit. I am writing this note to the editor sothat my neighbours will be warned.

Bankaplein with its fountain and flowers is lovely and it should be a joy to all of us. Traffic is supposed to round it keeping to the right. But every so often I see cyclists, both young and old, rounding it keeping to the left – so against the flow of traffic. This is not just setting a bad example, it is dangerous! More than once I had to step firmly on the breaks of my car in order to avoid an accident. Why don’t we stick to the traffic rules, which were made to prevent accidents that may be fatal for the cyclist and traumatic for the driver. Keep to the right, go with the flow and everybody will be able to enjoy our beautiful Bankaplein for many years to come.

The new working group in A&W, the Cultural Committee, organized its first activity in the weekend of 20/21 September 2014 and it was a great success! All the artistic and musical talents of our neighbourhood contributed to the programme: art exhibits in the Hall of the Anglican Church, in De Zalen, in De Vredeskapel and in a great number of artist’s studios drew hundreds of visitors. So did the home concerts and fairy tale teller Charles van Beuningen. The walk along all the statues and monuments in our district was very popular and the musical event in De Vredeskapel – an evening concert by “Het Nieuwe Lied” (under the auspices of the theaters Pepijn and Diligentia) – was sold out.
Many hands made light work and we thank all the friendly hosts and hostesses and sponsors.
When you have made pictures or films that you would like to share, please send them to email@example.com Any ideas or suggestions, comments, etc will be helpful and can be sent to the same address.
