Karlsruhe: Security: Carefree for Carnival

Karlsruhe: Stadtzeitung edition of February 10th, 2017 Security: Carefree for Carnival EASY STREET FASTNIGHT: The happy Helau should also guarantee a comprehensive security concept.Archive photo: Fränkle Further information Information on Carnival 2017 Comprehensive concept for security during removals In the fan-shaped city, too, the fifth season is approaching its final climax with the street Carnival. The dance starts on Sunday with the Grötzinger Narrensprung, on February 26th, motif wagons and groups of feet pull through Durlach. The end of the foolish triad is the Karlsruhe procession on Shrove Tuesday. So that participants and visitors can immerse themselves in the foolish hustle and bustle, the city, police and rescue organizations have developed a comprehensive security concept for the three parades. On the one hand, this builds on experience from the past few years, but "also takes current developments into account," emphasized Dr. Björn Weisse on Tuesday in front of the media. The head of the Ordnungs- und Bürgeramt meant above all mobile barriers created by trucks, which, after the attacks in Nice and at the Berlin Christmas market, were supposed to protect the three Karlsruhe parades from acts of terrorism with trucks approaching as weapons for the first time. The security situation was relaxed, there was “no evidence of attacks”, but the police would increase their presence, underlined operation leader Dieter Hoffert. There is also video surveillance at critical points. In this way, the emergency services primarily want to counter the “main problem”, according to Hoffert: disturbances and rioting caused by alcoholized young people. Youth protection teams who keep an eye on children and young people should prevent alcohol abuse. Those who need help can find them on SOS islands, which are recognizable by beach flags. The medical service directs the head emergency doctor, Dr. According to Christoph Nießner, a medical center and is present on the route. So that the helpers can reach the parents in an emergency, they should, according to Niessner, “give their children a slip of paper with their phone number and name”. Visitors should also pay attention to their disguise and, according to Weisse, “refrain from wearing irritating costumes with plastic weapons”. Flyer with tips for safety The public order office has created a flyer together with Karlsruhe Event GmbH, which informs the visitors of the three carnival parades about the topic of safety. The pocket-sized leaflet also gives tips on what to do in the event of incidents such as harassment, mobbing, alcohol abuse, but also storms or fire. The flyer is available in citizens' offices and shops and will of course also be distributed on the parades themselves. -trö- To the overview of the weekly edition

Karlsruhe: Volunteering: Humor plays first fiddle

Karlsruhe: Stadtzeitung, December 8th 2017 edition Voluntary work: Humor plays first fiddle TRADITION: Peter Grimm at the "Spundefresserbrunnen" in front of the Neureut town hall, the godfather stood for the guild of fools. Photo. AfSta / Strobel-Heck Further information Office for Participation and Commitment Citizen mentor Peter Grimm: It's fun to make others happy. A young club lives old traditions and sets new accents. For Peter Grimm, the "Nereeder Spundefresser" are a historical and humorous contribution for Neureut. The fountain in front of the town hall, nicknamed the Neureuter, was the inspiration for the fools' guild. "Spunde" was a poor man's meal made from potatoes. It was named after the pegs that were used to close the bung holes in the barrels. To poke fun at yourself and to put seriousness in its necessary place is Grimm's motto. “After all, there has to be fun and joy in life,” he says. Seven years ago, young people asked Peter Grimm if he would help them found the association. He couldn't say no. So he wrote the statutes and took over the public relations, sponsorship and event organization. Since then, Neureut street parties can no longer be imagined without the "bung eaters" and they have put on impressive events: Halloween, Rock on Rose Monday or the Carnival parade. “The first time was a really big experience,” says Peter Grimm. 80 foot groups with 2,000 participants took part. The street was lined with people watching and enjoying themselves. On the third Advent, the fools create the “Spundefresser Christmas Magic”. The smallest Christmas market in Karlsruhe has already become a tradition. His motto “We meet” is popular with both young and old. "The first time it only rained after the mayor's opening speech," recalls Grimm. The youth of the music association participated, the vocal group Neureut and the catchy tunes of the Nordschule Neureut. The hosts provided good food and drink. Despite the rain, everyone had great fun. If others need help, you can count on Peter Grimm. The Vogelpark Neureut association could no longer maintain its facility on its own. The "bung-eaters" tackled energetically: cutting hedges, mowing lawns, removing compost and demolishing an old hut were the first tasks. “The park is an experience for children,” says Grimm. There are large aviaries, goats, sheep and a small pond with ducks. Hunger and thirst can be quenched in a Greek restaurant. The fool's guild wants to support the bird lovers for at least a year. Peter Grimm has completed many advanced training courses in order to be able to exercise his honorary posts as well as possible: training as a citizen mentor, public relations work, acquiring donations and organizing projects. His club career is long. For the Sunshine Association he organized ceremonial meetings, shows and dance evenings - benefit events for the children's clinic. This was used to finance the clinic clown. He wasn't afraid of bankruptcy. “We were one hundred percent convinced that nothing would go wrong,” says Grimm. -AfSta - / - RSH information on engagement The "Nereeder Spundefresser" are fast nights with body and soul. They maintain the customs with a lot of fun and joy. The club maintains the Spundefresser show dance team. The seventh “Spundefresser Christmas Magic” will take place from December 15th to 17th in Neureut. Internet: www.spundefresser.de. Information on the citizen mentor program is available from the Office for Participation and Commitment of the Office for Urban Development at Zähringer Straße 61, phone 0721 / 133-1212.

Karlsruhe: Voluntary work: “Bissl” has become much more

Karlsruhe: Stadtzeitung edition of February 2, 2018 Honorary post: “Bissl” has become much more DIVERSE COMMITMENT: Bertel Stamp ensures a feel-good atmosphere in the Waldstadt meeting place. Photo: Strobel-Heck / Afsta Further information Office for Participation and Commitment Citizen mentor Bertel Stamp: An honorary position has grown against boredom. When Bertel Stamp was asked two years ago whether she would volunteer to run the meeting place of the Waldstadt Citizens' Association, she did not hesitate. "I'll do the bit," she decided. Before that, the former secretary of the board of directors had volunteered to guard a church for twelve years and gave tours there. She is one of the first to complete her training as a citizen mentor. The meeting place is an important meeting point in the district. “Anyone who comes is welcome,” laughs Ms. Stamp. You can get to know people, take part in varied events or create your own offers. Young and old meet for knitting courses, yoga evenings, creative circles, singing and making music or learning French. Young carnivalists train guard dance sport. The adult education center offers English courses. Interculturality is very important: there are African cultural events, a Turkish women’s café and an Islamic women’s group. If required, advice for pregnant women and mothers or computer courses are offered. The Kulturcafé is new with monthly lectures on travel, philosophical and scientific topics or interesting facts from the region. Special highlights are Easter and Christmas markets. There, leisure exhibitors sell jewelry, candles, Easter bunnies and Santa Clauses, embroidered pillow cases, socks and scarves that they have lovingly made by hand. The physical well-being is well catered for with coffee and donated cakes, homemade potato salad and sausages. “The house is packed these days,” says Stamp proudly. The voluntary work in the meeting place is important to her. Her eyes shine when she talks about her tasks. The "Bissl" has become much more. She coordinates events, keeps the house tidy, shops, distributes flyers and posters, equips the showcases, does the accounting and balance sheet and much more. Doing something useful, the variety and the challenge keep them young. She never gets bored. “I still have potential. Why should I waste it on the couch? ”She says. She can only recommend volunteering to others.
