A child-led tour of Veere in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands
A 9-year-old boy named Robbert shows us around his hometown of Veere in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands. His province is made up mainly of islands and water. After a very large flood in 1953, the government built the Delta works, which are a network of 13 dams and sluices on the coast.
The area is famous for inland lakes and attracts lots of people who like sailing. The area is also famous for its shellfish, especially mussels, lobster and oysters. Robbert’s father is a fish wholesaler, selling fish all over Europe from his fleet of lorries. Robbert shows us his Protestant school and how they often sing English songs at the start of the day. Robbert has a passion for football; he’s a striker and supports one of the most successful Dutch teams, Ajax.
