In the Zwalmparel, the new residents of the past three years were received this morning, because this was canceled several times due to the known reason (COVID).
About 160 registrations – new residents accepted the invitation. They were newcomers to Zwalm in the years 2019, 2020 and 2021.
The college of mayor and aldermen led by mayor Bruno Tuybens was presented, as were the municipal services and the local police.
Among the new residents, we were able to meet Anita Gyselinck, who happened to move to Beerlegem after her previous home suffered a lot of damage in Dikkelvenne after a fire.
The couple Philippe and Sabine moved from Merksem (Antwerp) to Rozebeke where they can enjoy a lot more peace and light.
The Wauters family found their way from Gentbrugge to Nederzwalm, where they live in a rural setting.
The highlight of the performance was a film explaining the services provided with some tourist images in between. During a snack and a drink one could get to know the other Zwalmnaars, which was much appreciated.
