Friday 29 July – A large garden party was held for residents of the Borneoflat (Burgemeester Patijnlaan). The residents committee, a number of residents themselves and Schakelpunt volunteers joined forces to make the afternoon possible.
Staedion, the housing corporation who provides the housing, came up with the finances and the daughter of one of the married couples living in the flats with a catering business, provided the Mediterranean snacks free of charge. These were supplemented with delicious salads, savoury flans and cakes made by the residents. The whole event was bathed in sunshine, which made the whole occasion even more heart warming. As one resident remarked “We should do this again!”
