A big “Thankyou” to Christine Burn who went to a lot of trouble to prepare and organise the Christmas cookie baking afternoon held at her welcoming home.  It really was a great way to kickstart the Christmas festivities not to mention yummy. A special thank you also from our husbands who really do think Christmas came early “Es war gemutlich!”

November Family Funday November 7, 2006

Filed under: Announcements — wigz @ 8:24 am

Thanks to everyone who helped make this our best fun-day to date. The food, once again was fantastic.  Face painting was brilliant and very popular with young and old(er) members, Anita needed to be spoon fed Anastasias wonderful pumpkin soup, so as not to disrupt the conveyor belt of children waiting to be sminkt.  To all the pyromaniacs, thanks for keeping yourselves and the fire under control.  The children’s costumes where just too scary for words.  Of course the next family fun-day coincides with the Dutch tradition of Sinterklaus which we fully intend to celebrate, so remember to pencil Sunday 3rd December in your diaries.


Organic harvest October 17, 2006

Filed under: Announcements — wigz @ 8:07 am

Dear fellow members

We have a small farm in Zuid-Beveland.  At the moment we are
harvesting many interesting fruits and such.  just wanted to let
people know what we have for sale at the moment:

16 variety of pumpkins, from very small to very big      €0,50 p. kilo
6 variety of  fresh walnuts, a mix      € 3,- p.kilo
12 variety of  “old rases” apples        €0,50 p. kilo
 Quince         €2,-p.kilo (limited)    quince jelly is also for sale €5,- p.
jam pot
everything is organically grown

This year because we are in the middle of renovating we didn’t make
any announcements so it most of our harvest  goes to local grocers,
but if WIGGZ’s are interested I wouldn’t mind them phoning or
dropping by.

Baarsdorp is actually not in ‘s-Heer Abtskerke.  It is closer to
Heinkenszand.  One passes the Hotel Goes, goes over the via duct,
follows the road to the right, and by the cluster of houses, don’t
shut your eyes or you’ve passed it, on the left hand side, a dead end
street, is the Oude Hoeveweg.  It’s the first farmhouse in the street
and one can come up the side entrance seeing the main gate is being
used.  It’s always good to let me know in advance when you’re coming
and what you are interested in so that I can have it ready.

 From Heinkenszand, the St. Pieters dijk keeping to the left, past
the kweker Westhof straight on is Baarsdorp.

Thank you,
