Antwerp's governor gets first Hoogstraten strawberries of the season

Last year, Coöperatie Hoogstraten brought the first strawberries of the season to Antwerp, Belgium, without the 'Ghesellen', and neither did they get to meet the governor due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, things have improved. Last week, the Hoogstraten Strawberries 'Ghesellen' gave Cathy Berx, Governor of Antwerp, the first of these soft fruits.

She and the Antwerp deputation - Luk Lemmens, Kathleen Helsen, Jan De Haes, Mireille Colson, and Maarten Puls, the new provincial clerk - received the Ghesellen at the Provincial House in Antwerp.

Hoogstraten is pleased that this tradition has been restored. And that the governor enjoyed the strawberries.
