Invitation for new residents of Bronckhorst

Dear resident,

Welcome in Bronckhorst! You came to live in the Bronckhorst municipality between February 2021 and August 2022. We hope that you feel at home in your new house. Perhaps you have already found a good supermarket and you have become a member of a nice sports association. As your municipality we also would like to get to know you. Therefore, we invite you for a nice evening in the town hall this September.

Make neighborhood

‘Make neighborhood’ or ‘Buurtmaken’ as we call it, is a tradition in the Achterhoek, where new residents invite all neighbors to get acquainted. We are happy to continue this tradition but do this the other way. We want to invite you in our home, the town hall of Bronckhorst, to get to know one another. You are most welcome:

  • When: on Monday, September 26
  • Time : at 8 p.m.
  • Where : in the town hall, at 2 Elderinkweg in Hengelo (Gld).


We start together in the council chamber for a warm welcome by the mayor and aldermen. After a short introduction you are free to look at the information market where multiple departments and organizations will present themselves to you. Our colleagues are happy to explain what they do and what they can mean for you, as a resident. You can also meet our ‘gebiedsambtenaren’, local officials who are a linking pin between you as a resident, social organizations, companies and municipality. Police, fire brigade and the tourist office will also present themselves.

Overall, you can look forward to a pleasant evening with drinks and bites. The evening will be ended around 22:00.

Hoping to meet you soon,


Mayor Marianne Besseling
