2011-11-15 | Information sessions on roof insulation in Waterschei and Winterslag

Neighbourhood managers and community workers from Waterschei and Winterslag banded together to motivate the people in their neighbourhood by means of targeted home visits and to invite them to an information evening about roof insulation. As well as receiving information on the benefits of insulation, the attendees could sign up for a group purchase of roof insulation. As far as the fitting of the insulation was concerned, they could either choose to do it themselves or to have the work carried out by a social economy project. In Waterschei there were 35 attendees from a total of 25 different addresses. Around 15 families actually decided to insulate their roofs. In Winterslag about 15 of the 30 attendees decided to have their roofs insulated.

The main focus of the first ever festival was to ensure that everyone had a good time together; many different shows – including circus acts, juggling, dance, music and dog handling demonstrations – and a host of exciting stands provided entertainment for young and old alike.
