  1. Message in a bottle:
    We’re relocating from Rotterdam to Lincoln. We are not Dutch but our daughter, 7, who went to school in The Netherlands speaks Dutch fluently. We hope to find a Dutch or partly Dutch family/families with children of similar age. Dutch was a part of our daughter’s early life, she was born in The Netherlands, Holland was her home until now and we’d like to keep her Dutch language alive through social interaction with other Dutch children. Kind regards, Vera

  2. Hello,

    Our daughter is a pupil in Y11 at Millfield school in Street, Somerset.
    She would like to take a GCSE in Dutch in May/June 2017.
    The school does not have someone to conduct the oral part of the exam.
    I’m wondering if there anyone, or you know of somebody, in the area who is qualified to do this?
    I would love to hear from you.

    Vriendelijke groet,
    Renske Graham

  3. Historical Dutch connections with Lancashire. Anyone have any good explanations/book recommendations about Dutch influence in this county? There are a few Dutch surnames about, there’s the long shared use of clogs (my English grandparents and great grandparents wore them), there’s the conspicuous good house-wifery: donkey-stoning street steps as well as some shared local vocabulary.
