Thirteen ‘buren banken’ in Celebesstraat await tired neighbours

13 October 2011 – The senior citizens’ centre in Soendastraat proposed the idea for a local ‘bench route’ at the March 2011 A&W Community Council meeting. Elderly people sometimes find a trip to the shops a bit too far to walk in one go.  A bench would provide a welcome resting place and the trip could be negotiated in easy stages.

After making an inventory of the surrounding streets, it was reported at the recent October Community Council meeting that in fact there were plenty of benches available in the neighbourhood. Thirteen inviting benches stand ready and waiting in Celebesstraat for tired neighbours.
