Over Vriendenkring De Laarstukken

Vriendenkring De Laarstukken was founded in 1980 as a neighbourhood association in part of the district "De Weibossen". Originally the purpose of the association was to strengthen solidarity and friendship within the neighborhood. The Brabant field name "laar", means an open spot in the woods. Friends of the neighbors have joined and so neighborhood and friends form "De Laarstukken". In 2015 the 35th anniversary of the circle of friends was festively celebrated.
