For and by local residents

The Cromvliet neighbourhood committee consists of a regular group of enthusiastic volunteers, all living in Cromvliet. They are specifically committed to creating more connection in the neighbourhood. The committee does this by organizing a number of activities and events every year for all residents of Cromvliet, young and old(er). In addition to the recurring activities, the committee also tries to organize new activities where possible. A photo report of previous events can be found here.

 

The committee is dependent on financial help from the Municipality of Rijswijk for the organization of events. In addition, the committee also tries to obtain financing through other channels, such as the Oranjefonds or Fonds 1818.

Sometimes the committee asks for a small contribution from residents who participate in an event, such as a snack, homemade or purchased, for the Neighbours' Day or a cost-covering contribution for the Neighbourhood Dinner

 

The neighbourhood committee is not an interest group; the committee deliberately focuses on connection by bringing neighbourhood residents together and not on other neighbourhood-related issues. For this you can contact the area director for Cromvliet at the municipality of Rijswijk, reachable via e-mail.

 

Upcoming activities in Cromvliet

The Cromvliet Neighbourhood Dinner: a 'walking dinner' through the neighbourhood

The next regular event is on Saturday, June 29: the Cromvliet neighbourhood dinner where neighbours cook for neighbours. Vegetarians, meat or fish eaters, Dutch or foreign language speaking, a chef or just a basic kitchen prince or princess: the Cromvliet neighbourhood dinner is for everyone. The only condition is that you live in Cromvliet!

 

Participants walk to three addresses in the neighbourhood for their starter, main course and dessert. The composition of the group, between 6 and 8 people, changes per course. Neighbours who, in addition to participating, provide one menu course, also join the participants for the other courses at varying addresses. The costs for the three-course dinner are € 25.00 per person including coffee and tea.

 

You can register for the neighbourhood dinner by e-mail. Please indicate in your message whether you are only a participant or also want to fulfill the role of chef. Also indicate the number of participants. The deadline for registration is June 3!

 

Wanted: chefs!

If you live in Cromvliet and enjoy cooking, register as a chef for the Cromvliet Neighbourhood Dinner. The more chefs, the more neighbours will be able to participate. Chefs cook for a maximum of 6 to 8 people and choose a starter or main course. For the other dish and dessert they join the dining table at another neighbourhood chef. The costs will be reimbursed. Registration can be done via e-mail.
