Waterpolo, also for girls!

  The Board of Directors of the Royal Belgian Swimming Federation, wants to get rid of mixed youth teams for children between 11 and 18 years old.

Because no Belgian team has enough girls to sta

Ice skating rink in Turnhout must stay open

After 40 years will the ice skating rink in Turnhout close it doors. For many skaters, supporters en parents this will mean the end of their sport or hobby. The ice skating rink has many clubs: ice hockey club Turnhout Tigers, figure skating club NOT, curlingclub Campina Curling and shorttrackclub TNT. These clubs have over 500 members, many of them are children, who will be left in the cold. Belgium doesn't have that many ice skating rinks, which doesn't make it easy to go elsewhere. Closing th

Stop the killing of straycats in the city of Bruges, Belgium!

Straycats are being killed because of ‘huntinglaws’ in the shelter of Bruges. Non profit organisation Kat zoekt thuis (‘Cat looking for a home’) has been neutering starycats for years in Bruges, at their own expense. Normally, this is at the responsibility and costs of the city counsel. In the past, we have had numerous contacts with the city counsel to improve the straycat-policy. Now, sadly, the city of Bruges is placing huntinglaws above animal welfare. Feral straycats are not neutered and r
