Last week hotel chain Van der Valk opened the first Valk Versmarkt (fresh market) next to the Hotel de Gouden Leeuw in Voorschoten. If you like the bread at breakfast, you can now also buy it next door. "Everything we already buy for our hotels, Van der Valk customers can now also take home", says Mark van der Valk, director of the fresh market.
On Friday the Pier in Scheveningen will close. The municipality of The Hague has ordered the closing of the Pier due to fire safety. Curator Marc Udink has tried to fight the decision of the municipality before court, but the court agreed to The Hague.
The curator was given time till October 1, to do necessary repairs. Last week, however, after inspection the safety department decided to close the Pier because the repairs had not been done.
