On behalf of the college of aldermen and myself, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you not only for your interest in the alternatives we have put forward to replace the conventional programme of events, but also for adhering to the various rules that have been introduced over the past few months, whether they apply to the public-health measures that are currently in force, or to registration procedures where no such procedures existed before.

It is thanks to you and your goodwill that, this autumn, our city is seeing the resumption of personal interactions, and that our cultural institutions and sporting facilities are gradually returning to normal.

Of course, the return to normality requires that we proceed with caution, and there are a number of restrictions that we believe are crucial to its success. I therefore encourage you to take the time to read the article that outlines the various rules in place, whether they apply to taking part in language courses, accessing the Cité Bibliothèque (City Library) or visiting the municipal museums, to mention just a few examples.

If you wish to keep up with any changes, please go to and, subscribe to the weekly newsletter or check out our social media pages, all of which we use to provide you with up-to-the-minute information.

We are proud to announce the release of the new cityapp – VDL. With this recent addition to our online services, users can access content that is even more personalised and tailored to their individual needs, right at their fingertips. This October edition contains an article on how the app works and the benefits it brings, and I am certain that it will make your daily lives all the easier.

Happy reading!
