At the beginning of March, Galamadammen was approached by the Municipality of Súd-West Fryslân with the request to accommodate refugees from the Ukraine. Although the start-up had already commenced now that the corona restrictions seem to have been removed, Galamadammen has complied with this request. The hotel and immediate surroundings were quickly refurbished and over 140 refugees have now been received.
What does this mean for our guests and the future?
Hotel and Restaurant: The hotel, the rooms, the restaurant and the terraces will be at the disposal of the people who are accommodated. The swimmingpool en suana are closed. Receptions, weddings, meetings, parties, etc. cannot take place for the time being.
Marinas: The marinas, with sanitary facilities under the hotel, remain open during the summerseason for renting moorings for both seasonal guests and passers-by. For this you can contact email@example.com
We understand that this will be a disappointment for many, given all the activity you are used to from before the corona crisis and the fun that reigned here. It also means that we all take a step aside for our fellow human beings.
Galamadammen expresses the hope, both to the guests who have been staying at the Galamadammen for years and to all future guests, to see you all again when this crisis is over.
For now, everyone is working with all their might on the shelter. In March, the Municipality prepared a communiqué for the guests of Galamadammen. You can read this on Communiqué Municipality of Súdwest-Fryslân on Communiqué Gemeente Súdwest-Fryslân. If you would like to help, have questions or complaints, you can contact the Municipality through the telephone number or email address specified by the Municipality.
For questions regarding the marinas, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
With all those involved, Galamadammen hopes that the refugees who have had to leave their homes during this war, will be received with love and warmth. And that we can all alleviate some of the horrors they must endure.
We will keep you informed of events here and hope to welcome you again in the future. You can also register below with your email address to stay informed.
