Dear Residents

2018 has come and gone in the blink of an eye. We are nearing the end of the first quarter of 2019, and it has been exciting and fulfilling thus far. I am positive that 2019 will be a great one for all of us.

Like past years, we bade farewell to 2018 and welcomed the new year on a high. The worries of a wet countdown were unfounded as the thunderstorm ceased right before the event started. The turnout was fantastic, and everyone’s spirits soared high. It skyrocketed at the stroke of midnight as the magnificent fireworks lit up the sky.

We celebrated the successful completion of the first 50 new lifts under the Town Council’s Lift Replacement Programme on 27 January 2019. Together with another 56 new lifts which we announced on the day, there will be a total of 336 new lifts benefiting 15,200 households in Sembawang GRC. Residents can look forward to brand new lifts which are faster, brighter, more spacious and reliable when they are replaced progressively in the next 2 years.

In January, we also celebrated Pongal together when the sun rose in the new year. Check out how our celebrations went as residents gathered together for the festival.

February came and it was a month of feasting and bonding for everyone. Chinese New Year dinners and celebrations were held across all divisions in our Town to welcome the Year of the Pig together with our residents.

On behalf of everyone at Sembawang Town Council, I wish you and your loved ones an abundance of wealth and health.
