Forty percent of the residents in our neighbourhood are of foreign origin.
Many of them live here for a few years and then leave. The newcomers need information about our neighbourhood.
This was a reason for the directors of the Residents Organisation to develop a brochure in English with a wealth of information about the neighbourhood.
So the brochure includes information about locations of the cash points and rubbish bins, doctors, pharmacies, the local police station, information about public transport, shop opening times and so on.
The brochure has since then been distributed in the district to be easily at hand.
The municipality of The Hague warmly welcomes this initiative in order to give a “Feel at Home” to the many foreigners.
