Topping out ceremony at the community center

Topping out ceremony at the community center

The protestant parish had waited a long time to be able to start building the new parish house. Now everyone is surprised how fast the work is progressing.

Six months after the groundbreaking ceremony, the community celebrated the topping-out ceremony on thursday. Two weeks ago, it didn’t even look like the construction was that far along. "All of a sudden we had trouble setting the date for the topping-out ceremony so that the roof wasn’t already covered", said pastor robert augustin.

He praised the construction companies for their drafty work. Augustin also surprised how clean the construction site is. Initial concerns that worshipers might carry mud into the church proved unfounded. The pastor also thanked architect marcus seifert for the good cooperation.

For many, the exceptional situation is normal life

For most people, the bavarian restriction has a negative impact on their quality of life, because social contacts, shopping, sports and culture, cinema, family visits and more are currently only possible to a limited extent.

In the regular telephone calls, which currently have to replace personal contacts and counseling sessions in the social psychiatric service to a large extent, there are also other feedbacks. For many, the current exceptional situation is "normal" life. There is simply no social contact; due to mental illness, every purchase is a test of endurance – which may or may not be successful. There is usually not enough money for cultural activities anyway, and contact with the family is sometimes sporadic due to previous mental crises.

Therapeutic contacts are lacking

This does not mean, however, that the current issues do not affect these clients, but the effects are different: therapeutic contacts or medical services such as rheumatism league, logopadia or psychotherapy are often missing during these days. The regular telephone conversations with the staff of the social psychiatric service are a bad alternative for some people. Many clients are well aware that there will be massive difficulties when the exceptional period is over and society’s expectations once again take center stage: "for me, it’s a relief not to have to go out, that no one says I have to motivate myself and integrate." The return to seemingly "normal life will be difficult, and the support of the social psychiatric service will then be no less required.

night watchmen: day and night in the service of the burghers

The first fans arrived on tuesday to attend the european meeting of night watchmen and turmer in prichsenstadt. On ascension day the protagonists arrived. At the first meeting on friday there were 92 members from seven european countries. Highlights for the audience were the parade and the turmerblasen on saturday.

Prichsenstadt was fully booked, some of the guild brothers stayed in the barracks in volkach. Such a meeting, says the acting guild master johannes thier from bad bentheim, is like a classic meeting, only in a different place every year. Next year it will take place in gundelfingen, bavaria.

The european guild of night watchmen and watchmen was founded in 1987 in ebeltoft, denmark. There the tradition of the night watchmen was rediscovered in 1953. At that time an innkeeper had been given two uniforms as a birthday present. This he put on two young employees and put them on the steps of the town hall. They were to sing there and then drive the guests to the theater. The following year, the city took over the coordination, so that night watchmen in traditional costumes announce the hour in ebeltoft every evening. The ebeltoft guild alone has 40 members. The oldest and at the same time guild master of the ebeltofter signed the golden book of the city of prichsenstadt together with the other guild masters.

Children are afraid of the crisis

Children are afraid of the crisis

At a time like this, when the whole of society is affected, the effects do not stop at the smallest members of our society. Our children suffer from the feeling that their safety is at risk.

Experiences such as the covid 19 pandemic also led to disruptions in the children and young people’s mental and emotional equilibrium. What happens?

Worry is transmitted

Unexpected events lead to an overload, the daily routine of the children is completely changed, this leads to confusion and can cause, among other things, anxiety symptoms. The adult’s or caregiver’s anxiety is therefore also transmitted to the children, which is often perceived as threatening. Consequently, stress arises.

Full effort for the wild bees

full effort for the wild bees

Wild bees are a valuable asset whose population must be nurtured and protected. In the new castle park of trabelsdorf, lothar winkler, head of the office for rural development, has now officially installed symbolically for all of upper franconia one of over 60 wild bee nesting aids with information boards. "Our house is a partner for the overall social task of nature and species conservation," says winkler. "It is important for us to bring the topic of preserving species diversity closer to the population, not only in the case of insects, in the context of village renewal and land reorganization processes."

According to the press release of the trabelsdorf community, special attention was paid to regionality in the production of the nesting aid. The ash wood comes from the forest below the giechburg near scheblitz. The sawmill furst in azendorf processed the trunks into beams and made blocks for the nesting aid from them. The joseph workshops in lichtenfels, with the participation of people with disabilities, drilled nesting holes in the wooden blocks, planed them smooth and mounted them on the information board. In the holes, non-state-forming wild bees and other insects find room to nest and hibernate.

Expanded to historical coarse

Pascal kubler, chairman of the trabelsdorf community: "i am delighted that the village renewal was chosen by more than 39 communities throughout upper franconia as the symbol for the installation of all 60 wild bee nesting aids."Within the framework of the village renewal, the castle park was extended to its historical coarseness by the participant community of trabelsdorf. A new network of footpaths has been created. Attractive seating invites you to linger. "It will be exciting to see how the appearance of the young castle park with the approximately 90 planted deciduous trees and the approximately 180 new shrubs will develop over the next few years," says kubler.

Ttv challenges the master

It was supposed to be the high point in the table tennis regional league north northeast, the duel on the last matchday between the TTV altenkunstadt and the TTC wohlbach. But even with a high victory of the altenkunstadt team on saturday (3 p.M., elementary school hall), they could no longer topple the leader from the throne.

Wohlbach (28:2 points) has already been crowned champions, the ttv team (26:4) could draw level on points with a win, but the match record (98:75) clearly speaks for the ttc, which was already regarded as the favorite for the title before the season, and which only conceded one point each against mistelgau and burgkunstadt. In the first leg, the men from the municipality of ahorn showed the old arts cadets the limits in a 9:1 victory.

The ttv team had to outgrow itself against the wohlbach team of patrick forkel (individual score 20:0), marc seidler (19:2), alex brandl (20:1), christian fredrich (21:2) and martin kolovratnik (19:1) to achieve a better result than in the first leg.
