New heating system for Flying Angel Club
February 2016; The committee approved the application of the Flying Angel Club in Schiedam for a heating replacement, a good heating being essential to run a seamens’ club and therefore contributing to the seafarers welfare.
The mission to Seafarers cares for and promotes the spiritual, moral and physical wellbeing of all seafarers and their families worldwide. The Flying Angel Club in Schiedam can be reached at 31-10-426 09 33 and is open from 18.00 until 23.00 every day of the year. It provides a much needed rest ashore, a chance to get away from the ship, contact relatives, play games, have a drink and relax. Having a new heating system in the Flying Angel Club will help the seafarers enjoy the club in comfort and it will help the club survive. With help of the project the old inefficient heater, well over 20 years old, is removed and replaced with a new and more efficient one, keeping the temperature at a comfortable level whilst at a saving of 15 to 20% at the same time.
“The new heater is installed and tested! It has been keeping the building warm with no trouble. So on behalf of all of our seafarers we would like to say a big THANK YOU to the Rotterdam Port Welfare Committee for insuring a future for the Flying Angel Club in Schiedam. Thank you very much for such a wonderful gift that will be keeping seafarers warm for decades.”
