The Red Cross, Thank You !!!!

A Big Thank you!!

In December/January have customers of the Albert Heijn Blixembosch donated their tickets from returning their bottles, and in total raised € 450.

This money will be going to the Red Cross, it will be used to set up the contact circles in Eindhoven.

In these contact circles are mostly lonely, elderly people living alone, they will be contacted 7 days a week to check that they are ok. If all is not well, a volunteer from the Red Cross will take appropriate action. This gives all the participants a safe feeling that they are not and will not be forgotten.

Want to know more then why not take a look on our website: Rodekruis/brabantzuidoost or phone 06-26774590 and ask for Marjolijn Poppeliers (Monday, Tuesday Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning)

Once again thank you all !!

From the Committee

The general meeting is going digital.

The yearly members general meeting for our neighbourhood association is on 23rd March 2021.

As we are still under the conditions due to Corona, and as they are expected still to be in place, we will be unable to have a meeting in the community centre Blixems, so we will be going on-line.

If you wish to take part in this on-line meeting you can sign-up by sending an e-mail to, you will then get instructions on how to log-in, you will also be sent a copy of the order of business.

Youth work is going to Lumens.

The youth work in Blixembosch is for many years led by the Cement. Youth worker Peter van Belen, is a well known face in our nieghbourhood and knows many of the youth.

The council in Eindhoven have decided that from 2021 the work will fall under Lumens, this group works together with Dynamo Youth group and is active in other neighbourhoods in Eindhoven. In 2021 the way they work will presented in the whole of Eindhoven.

This all means that we will be saying goodbye to the Cement group and of course this means to Peter to.

As well as the activities in the Youth centre, Peter also organized the yearly football tournament the Blixemscup.

The committee would like to thank Peter for all the work he has done for our neighbourhood and of course for the youth, when possible we will also physic goodbye.

The Chairmen.

Rubbisch Collection 18 september 2021.

Looking back at the successful rubbish collection by the volunteers in September, we have had to make decisions over what to
do this year.
Usually in March we do another collection which coincides with nationwide clean-up day, but with the current conditions to do
with Corona, we have taken the decision to move it to the autumn.
So on Saturday 18 th September 2021 we will hold our yearly clean-up of rubbish in our neighbourhood, this will coincide with
World Clean-up day. This is a worldwide initiatieve where people all over the world clear up the streets, parks, the countryside
and any other open area.
We hope to welcome as many enthusiastic volunteers, young and old as we did last year.
Once again we will provide a cup of tea or coffee before we start and a well earned sandwich when we finish and of course for
the younger collectors a diploma!
So why not put the date in your diaries Saturday 18 th September 2021 by the community centre Blixems.
