HERNE PACKS OUT again this year in the scaffolding – © Deschuyffeleer
After Herne was also unable to ‘unpack’ for a few years due to corona, the new edition of ‘Herne Pakt Uit’ promises to be one of size this time. For example, on Sunday 11 September from 1 to 6 pm in and at the De Hernekouter sports hall, residents will once again have the opportunity to get to know each other and meet each other in a casual atmosphere during all kinds of workshops, sports initiations and fringe entertainment.
The multi-purpose organization is based on the local government and is a collaboration between the associations that are part of the ‘leisure’ platform on the one hand, and the health organizations and their recognized associations on the other. By setting up a whole series of activities in different domains and which are freely accessible to everyone, the organization wants to see as many residents as possible come to the event to experience a fun and playful afternoon together. Everyone is welcome, both young and less young, both large and small.
A lot to experience
As with the previous successful editions, there is a lot to experience during this ‘Herne Pakt Uit’. Exercise and an afternoon full of fun are central. You can get acquainted with various ongoing sports initiations such as karate, badminton, petanque and curve bowl. And have you always wanted to cycle with a high bi bike, then this is the chance.
There are also various walks and bike rides on an ongoing basis, as well as a Moving Op Referral (BOV) campaign that starts at 2.15 pm.
In addition to workshops such as flower arranging and pimp your bicycle, there is also an information stand ‘healthy municipality’. For the first time, the ‘Oxvan’ will also make an appearance. You will learn more about fair trade.
For the children there are bouncy castles, a merry-go-round, pool football, a go-cart track, blind games where you can experience sports, archery and much more as a blind or partially sighted person.
For the little ones there is a toddler play corner with a balance course, toddler dance at 4 pm and children’s dance at 5 pm.
At 3 pm there is also the opportunity to support a football match of FC Herne. The B-team with young local talents will then take on FC Schepdaal. Entry to that match is also free.
You can enjoy a drink on the summer terrace at the sports hall.
Since the parking lot at the sports hall is largely taken up for the event, it is advisable to come by bicycle or park at the station.
All residents will soon receive a flyer in the mailbox. More info on www.herne.be under the news section.
