Committee chairman Bert Bos, presented the plans for the 2012 Bankapleinfestijn at the recent A&W Community Council meeting.

The community feast will take place 8 September 2012 around Bankaplein from 5 pm till midnight. The provisional programme will kick off with a welcoming drink for local residents from the Archipelbuurt and Willemspark and music provided by fellow residents, followed by a festive meal accompanied by music from a professional band. In principle the festive meal is intended for adults but a short children’s programme will be organised for the beginning of the evening.

The wijkfeestcomité will submit a subsidy application (via the A&W Community Association) to the City Council.

29 September 2011 – Various local residents have responded to the call for new volunteers for the wijkfeestcomité, however, the comité of eight women and one man (Bert) would welcome another male volunteer to address the gender balance somewhat.

One of the original committee members, Betty Aardewerk, says the reinforcements and the core members are getting along well.
