Take care of each other, make Wemmel even warmer

take care

Dear Warm Wemmelaar,

Strange and rather difficult times break out because of the measures required to contain the Coronavirus. School classes are suspended for the next few weeks, cafes and restaurants are closed, and rest home residents are not allowed to receive visitors.

It is important to follow and comply with government and municipality guidelines. Because even if you are not a risk patient, because your immune system is top notch, there are many others who are. Because they have been ill for a long time, for example, or because they are a bit older. That's what it's all about. That is the solidarity that is now being called upon.

This is also the perfect moment to show in Wemmel that we are not abandoning anyone. To show how warm Wemmel can be and is. Yes, how solidarity Wemmel is. If you go to the supermarket or go shopping elsewhere, check with your neighbour whether he or she needs something. Ask friends or parents of classmates how they are going to do it, because maybe a babysitter can be shared?

But it can also be much simpler, by just chatting, for example, to break the loneliness or monotony. That's good, that helps too.

Healthcare workers are busy day and night, and the self-employed will have to bite their teeth seriously in the coming weeks. We propose - once this is over - to support our local shops and stores and to fill up the cafes and restaurants in Wemmel like never before.

In short, we can handle this.
If we stay calm, if we take care of each other, if we think of each other.

Take care,
Warm Wemmel

Wemmel's Got Talent 2019

Warm Wemmel invites you all for the fourth edition of Wemmel’s Got Talent!

On the 9th of November, Warm Wemmel organizes Wemmel’s Got Talent for the fourth time at Gemeenschapscentrum De Zandloper. Not a competition, but an artistic evening with a stage full of Wemmelaars of all kinds and of all ages. Residents, but also students from Wemmel schools (Sint-Jozefschool, Mater Dei, GBS Wemmel, GO TA Campus Wemmel) and members of associations, provide fifteen acts in a cozy atmosphere, with musical interventions from the Sibeljazz combo. Afterwards we enjoy a concert by Buckwood Mojo & Friends. Deejay Samsation closes the evening with a dance party. Cafe Op 't Hoeksken, La Bottega di Dario and Kin Food serve snacks and dishes. Naturally, Cultuur Bar Bar also welcome you this evening with food and drinks. Last year more than a thousand people came to watch this colorful evening. Entrance is free. Spectators can make a free financial contribution. All profits will be used to fight poverty in our municipality.

Wemmel’s Got Talent IV, on Saturday November 9, 7 p.m., GC De Zandloper

Loan of reusable tents and cups

Thanks to an impulse subsidy from Vlaamse Rand, Warm Wemmel was able to acquire 900 reusable cups and two 4 x 6 meter party tents. Warm Wemmel wants to make this material available to other positive Wemmel initiatives that want to make responsible use of it. Are you interested and do you want to know the conditions?
