The Oosterzeel walking club WSV Land van Rhode vzw, which will enter its thirty-sixth year in 2023, opened a chat cafe on Saturday 5 November 2022 in Zaal De Kring in Balegem. Many members and sympathizers came down to De Kring. Just after 3 p.m., the hall was already packed. After the friendly welcome, there was an immediate friendly atmosphere in the Praatcafé. You could get acquainted with the Land van Rhode walking sports association, which spoiled its members, candidate members, sympathizers and the press with cake and coffee. And on top of that, it’s free. A nice gift from the walking club for its members and sympathizers.
