Brauhaus project threatens to fail: Social list Bocholt calls for municipal event hall for Bocholt

Press releaseBrauhaus project threatens to fail: Social list Bocholt calls for municipal event hall for BocholtNachdem the brewery project seems to be threatened with failure, raises the voters community Social List Bocholt again the question of whether on the Kubaai site an event hall can be integrated to the need for events for example for school and club celebrations, corporate events and comedy events. The voters' community has submitted an appropriate council request to the mayor's office, Peter Nebelo, which they will meet in the main committee meeting on 11. Rainer Sauer (Chairman) now wants to know if the administration sees the need for an event hall and how it now wants to deal with it and explains: "A city of the order of magnitude like Bocholt with 73000 inhabitants may not look at itself the Bocholt citizens must look for event locations. If the city wants to keep its inhabitants together and provide you with a forum for leisure and culture, it has to be active here and act as a motor and function. So far, the focus has been more on major projects that citizens are rather opposed to. Even the Kubaai Bridge for around 2,5 million euros is not well received by the population. And, of course, the renovation of the town hall could have turned out to be a few numbers smaller, for some 45 million euros. In the future, politics and administration must see the whole picture when it comes to distributing taxpayers' money. People in our city should not feel any longer that "there is money for everything, but it's about the common good, there are neither resources nor funds available." To a family and citizen-friendly Bocholt also includes an event hall. To do this, the administration must now become active and tackle this as the top priority. A "no" would be a wrong and devastating signal here. After all, Bocholt is a city and not a village. Also, the provision of an event hall is a contribution to business development and so practically a must. In the main committee meeting, the Social Lisle also wants to know whether alternative city theater could be expanded. Or: What other possibilities exist to set up an event hall? "[...]

Summer tip: Aasee with bathing and live music

It is summer. You want to go outside, in the fresh air and in the sun. What beautiful places are there in Bocholt, which invite you to? A place is the Aasee. It originated before 36 years ago from a big excavator hole. The lake is 32 acres, almost as tall as 45 football fields, and up to six feet deep. Many people go for a walk, often with their dogs. Or they jog. There is a bike path, and you can grill there too. A lap around the lake is about three kilometers long. Now in summer, it is a lot of fun to ride a pedal boat or book standup paddling. And you can also bathe in the Aasee. There is even a beach for that. Lifeguards of the DLRG pay attention and are in action when something should happen while swimming. The entrance is free. At the beach you can lie on a lawn in the sun. There are beach chairs for that. If you want, you can bring a blanket or a lounger. There are shower and changing rooms and a photo box, which can be photographed as a group. You can buy drinks or something to eat: at the beach bar or in Traber Bocholter beach cafe, which was previously known under the name Ottilie. Here you can have breakfast extensively, chat over coffee and cake or enjoy other food and drinks. Open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 9.30 to 22, Sundays from 9.30 to 21 o'clock. This summer there is a special offer in and at the beach cafe: Every second Wednesday of the month, the "Aasee Sunsets" start here in the early evening. Then singers, songwriters and musicians, who have made a name for themselves in Bocholt and the surrounding area or are regarded as talented up-and-coming artists, appear on a small stage right on the water. In the end, the audience on the beach experiences the most beautiful sunset far and wide. All this with free admission. Every second Thursday of the month there is also music, drinks and food at the "Afterbeats am See" at the same time of the evening. Even if the weather is not so good, there are always a lot of guests, and there is a good atmosphere like the last time Stefan Passerschröer sang the songs of Frank Sinatra. The Aasee can be reached via Uhlandstraße or Königsbronn, Strand and Strandcafé also over the Hohenhorster Straße - on foot, by bike or by car. On Wednesday, 24. July is a new episode of the "Aasee Sunsets" instead of - with live singing of "Onion & the Mana Manas". [...]
