On Sunday afternoon March 25 a.s. at 2:30 pm in the Zeeheldentheater the performance ‘Aap Noot Mies’ by Muziektheater Briza.

A playful performance with the themes: playing together, sharing together, bullying is not fun and everyone is part of it. You can be naughty if you make up for it afterwards. The hand puppets (Akasama-i, Manna and the Bambobien) give the performance an extra dimension. Special instruments such as the kazoo, the ukulele and accordion accompany the original songs that the group composed and wrote.

Songs and sketches alternate and everyone can sing, dance and clap. A fun and educational performance for the whole family!

Recently the contractor BAM for Stedin (the network operator in our region) started remediation work at the Laan Copes van Cattenburgh and the Burgemeester Patijnlaan in The Hague.  Stedin replaces the low pressure gas pipe and the house connections that are connected to the part that is being replaced. The gas connections within the buildings will be renewed here.

A first bump during the work: the gas pipe is located under the chestnut trees along the Burgemeester Patijnlaan so that an alternative route has been determined for that part with the municipality. This will mean, however, that there is some run-off on the schedule, but the intention is that all work will be completed before the construction holiday this year.

The houses that are on the list for the work are:

Borneostraat 95 t/m 99, 151 and 177 t/m 183
Burgemeester Patijnlaan 61 t/m 67 and 1900, 1927 t/m 1930 t/m 1938
Koninginnegracht 73
Laan Copes van Cattenburgh 40 t/m 68, 69 t/m 73, 74 t/m 86, 89, 90 t/m 100, 101 t/m 147

Appointments will be made with all residents to schedule the indoor work.

The Hoogheemraadschap Delfland warns that false tax assessments for the water board tax are in circulation in The Hague. Dozens of elderly people in The Hague already found one in the bus.

The fake tax assessment seems to have been sent by the Regional Tax Group (RBG), but it is not. The false copies differ from the real assessments that the RBG also sends these days. The account number on which money is to be transferred to NL47 is to be paid to the director of the Municipal Taxes, The Hague.

Do not pay this assessment and contact the Regional Tax Group (RBG) that receives this tax, advises the Water Board.

The Hague interest groups and three political parties in the city council in The Hague have confirmed ribbons along the Scheveningseweg for the trees that will soon be cut down. The action was ended prematurely by the police. But the campaigners succeeded in providing a large part of the 130 trees with a ribbon in time.

“Normally the municipality does that as soon as the logging permit has been applied for, but in this case the municipality has failed to do so. That’s why these people have taken it up themselves so that everyone can see which trees have to make way for the new tram rails “, says Clara Visser of Bomenstichting Den Haag (, 070-356 20 31)
