Westerveld Cemetery & Crematorium held the ‘Westerveld Fair’ for the second time on Sunday 11 June. Hundreds of people visited the attractive outdoor fair on this sunny Sunday. Many positive comments could be heard from both visitors and exhibitors.
Art & Nature
There was a wide variety of exhibitors at the Fair displaying and talking about their products and services covering art, crafts and nature. “Really nice to experience the park in a completely different way. It’s really beautiful here amongst all the greenery. There were special works of art to enjoy and even buy if you wanted, just as with the many different plants, herbs and flowers. It was a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon!”, according to one of the visitors.
Times gone by
There was also a chapel outside where the visitors could listen to music and enjoy short stage plays. The ‘tribune’ proved to be popular, because that is where Jan Jacob Slauerhoff, Frits Portielje and Heintje and Louis Davids told interesting stories about their past and the links they have with Westerveld memorial park. Marsmelody provided live music and a falconer was present with beautiful birds of prey and owls. “We organized the Fair so that people could become pleasantly acquainted with our memorial park”, said Carla Bosua, director of Westerveld Cemetery & Crematorium, “and it’s been a great success. The lovely products shown by the exhibitors, the performances, the catering and of course the fantastic weather all helped to create a really pleasant atmosphere.”
