A first-date evening was organized by Wijkbedrijf Selwerd and WIJS Groningen on Thursday evening 6 April. Around a quarter to 6 the first people who had signed up arrived.
In the entrance hall of Wijkrestaurant De Duindoorn they are kindly welcomed by a student of WIJS. The residents of Selwerd and the surrounding area get their first drink at the bar and are brought to the table around 6 o’clock. From that moment the evening starts and they a 3-course menu is served.
The evening goes well and after each course the residents are allowed to change tables in order to get in touch with as many people as possible. There were cards on the table available with questions that they could ask each other, but several residents indicated that they did not even need this.
The residents enjoyed each other’s company so much that they sat down together at the end of the evening to round off. It has become an evening full of fun, new encounters and connections!
