During the past summer season, the beach crew worked through nights to keep the coastline of The Hague clean. This means that bathers can enjoy a clean beach every morning in addition to the beautiful weather. Alderman Anne Mulder thanked the beach crew, volunteers and other organizations that have committed themselves to this yesterday afternoon.
Alderman Anne Mulder: “This year will go down in the books as the sunniest year ever in the Netherlands. Residents and visitors from the Netherlands and abroad therefore visited Scheveningen. Unfortunately, many visitors also means that more waste is left behind. Day in and day out, our beach crew and other waste heroes have worked hard to keep our beaches clean. I am extremely grateful for that, because these toppers ensured that our bathers could enjoy all the beauty that our coastline has to offer.” Photo: Jurriaan Brobbel Magazine clean beach Scheveningen A magazine was made on the occasion of the 5th anniversary of the Grondstofjutters.
