Sayang Sembawang June 2017

Dear Residents

There are many exciting changes taking place in Sembawang GRC, all of which will serve to make our Towns a better place for all to work, play and live in.

Woodlands Town will be transformed into the “Star Destination of the North” under HDB’s Remaking Our Heartlands (ROH) programme (Pages 6 – 7). Residents shared their own wishes and dreams for Woodlands Town and these suggestions have been incorporated into renewal plans, which were exhibited to the public for the first time in April. Read on to find out more about the 6 star attractions coming your way!  

Additionally, residents can look forward to the first hospital in Woodlands (Pages 8 – 9). The Woodlands Healthcare Campus broke ground on 18 April 2017 and is set to open in stages from 2022. With its variety of facilities, it will provide both enhanced and accessible health care by tapping on SMART technology and green healing spaces.

The Masjid Yusof Ishak also officially opened its doors on 14 April 2017 (Page 5) in a ceremony officiated by Puan Noor Aishah, wife to the late President Yusof Ishak, and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. The name of the mosque honors our first President, Mr Yusof Ishak, paying tribute to his contributions to Singapore.

Our Towns are not only characterized by its developments, but more importantly by its people. Events such as the annual Canberra Day (Page 3) and Sembawang GRC Dream Big 5s Challenge (Page 4) gave us opportunities to gather as a community and forge deeper friendships through sports and games. We look forward to more of such gatherings in the year to come. 

As we await these new changes in Sembawang GRC, may we also remember to continue building on our strong kampung spirit as a community. Sayang Our Future, Sayang Sembawang!
