Translation of the Dutch text:

Now that big maintenance works are planned on the east bank, our tower has to be moved to a new location. As they want to make it a touristc attraction, they decided to build an artificial island off the coast of the "Klein Strand". A dwelling is built for the lightkeeper, Kamiel. Let's see if this will attrack many visitors.
