Flyer Postjesbuurt – Info in English

At the bottom of this page you will find the newest edition of the flyer of the Postjesbuurt. But first the links and some translated text from the flyer:

Buurtteam de Baarsjes
For all your questions about: care, housing, health, income, financial issues, meeting people, and safety.

Talk about your neighbourhood with other residents, the municipality, the police and the social worker.

What is happening in the Neighbourhood in the coming weeks?

Stadsdorp Postjesbuurt
Participate in activities such as eating together, going to a museum or the movies or playing Jeu de boules (pétanque).

Buurtkamer Corantijn
Meet your neighbours during the Buurtborrel (drinks), the Walk-in or other activities. Organise an activity for the neighbourhood! Or rent space for a party or meeting.

Combiwel Buurtwerk
The Neighborhood Workers will help you with your plan for the neighbourhood. They know the neighborhood and know the way to get things done.

Groen in de Postjesbuurt
Want to know more about all kinds of green initiatives in our neighborhood? Check out the site!

Click one of the pictures to have a closer look at that side of the flyer.

Buurtkamer Corantijn also speaks English!

You want to participate in the neighbourhood but don’t speak Dutch (yet)? On this page you will find activities that are especially suitable for people who do not speak Dutch. But if you can understand a little Dutch other activities like Stoelyoga or the weekly Walk-In could also be nice for you. Most activities in the Buurtkamer are (almost) free. Do you have a question? Mail to info@buurtkamercorantijn.nl.

Do you want to organize an activity for this target group yourself? Check possibilities via info@buurtkamercorantijn.nl. For free activities that are open to neighbours, in most cases you can use the Buurtkamer without paying rent.

Organizing a private party or meeting is also possible, but then you will have to pay rent, more info (in Dutch) here.

Neighbourhood drinks (‘Buurtborrel’) – Language no problem!
You like to have a drink with your neighbours but feel insecure about speaking Dutch? During our monthly ‘Buurtborrel’ we will ensure that internationals like you are extra welcome. We will speak English and Dutch and maybe other languages!  The Buurtborrel is usually on a Tuesday or Thursday at the end of the month. See for the date of the next one the title of this page: www.buurtkamercorantijn.nl/buurtborrel-eerstvolgende
