‘Entertaining for the audience, but also competitive at the same time’
By Henri Walterbos
HARREVELD – It is possible again, it is allowed again, it tickles many Harrevelders again. Our own fair is on the doorstep: Pentecost from Saturday 4th to Monday 6th June. With a number of familiar elements, but also with a new attraction: De Alleskunner van Harreveld.
President Jos Weikamp is looking forward to it. He is gradually handing over his duties to successor Dorus Wolters, who has been part of the board for three years but has not yet experienced Pentecost due to the corona. “I will close the fair section this year. I will continue to participate in the Bird Shooting Committee this year and maybe next year, “says Weikamp on Café de Boer’s terrace. “I am very satisfied. It has been fantastic and we have a very good growth, a young creative club together.” Dorus Wolters nods in agreement. “During the corona period, some people stopped. Jos Weikamp and Sofie de Mooy are back from the Corona Party Committee. The other new members are: Roy Berentsen, Roel Kolkman, Linda Willemsteyn and Malou Hulshof. ” About his own role. “I had already indicated that I would like to take a seat on the party committee, no matter what role it may be. I would like to contribute to the Harreveld fair, for me is the most beautiful event found in Harreveld. Especially in the new form. I feel a little responsible for keeping it going, with a good music program, fun activities that young people also like to go to, feel connected to. ”
“We try to organize something that is fun for both young and old, even though this year we skip Sunday morning drinking time,” says Dorus. “In recent years, this has become less and less visited. If people still miss it, we’ll have to think of an alternative that appeals. In addition, some things have changed. New people at the cafe, a different decor of the fairgrounds because the cafe has been renovated and an almost new board. Then it gives some relief to push the drinking hour for a while and maybe pick it up again later. ”

It is based on the TV series ‘De Alleskunner’, but we make it a little more local, ”Elmy begins. “They are all different games,” Joeri continues. “On TV there are 100 people and for every match one is dropped.

Something permanent and a currency exchange, “concludes Elmy.

More than welcome even, ”adds Dorus. “We are very happy that everything is allowed and possible again. People are excited about it again. It’s great that it can happen again. “
