Sayang Sembawang March 2018

Dear Residents

2017 has come and gone in the blink of an eye. We are in the last lap of the first quarter of 2018, and it is promising so far. I am positive that 2018 will be better than last year for all of us!  

Like all other years, we bade farewell to 2017 and welcomed the new year on a high! Despite the huge downpour, our residents’ spirits were not dampened, and in fact soared high that night, skyrocketing at the stroke of midnight as the magnificent fireworks shoot up into the sky!

Following the New Year, it was not long before the Lunar New Year arrived. Residents ushered in the Year of the Dog with Chinese New Year dinners and celebrations across the different divisions in our Town. It is always heartwarming to see everyone exchanging well-wishes as the community gathered for a time of feasting and bonding.

At the start of the year, we have already rolled out a few initiatives. With the involvement of many, the launch of the Sharella Project was very well-received. Also, we inked ourselves into history by becoming the first estate in Singapore to have a playground built for the residents by the residents! Our Canberra residents went hands-on that day as they pieced all the parts together, secured the screws and built the playground together as a community.

Also, in conjunction with Singapore Art Week, we launched our very own ‘Art Month’ and were proud and excited to know that there are so many talented artists in this neighbourhood!

We are also happy to reveal the many new upgrades in our Town this year. Residents, for instance, can look forward to a new and improved Jelutung Harbour Park, with many new facilities and play equipment for all to behold and enjoy! A series of upgrading works has also been lined up at Vista Park and Gambas Zone 1. Like everyone else, I am looking forward to these fascinating changes here in our midst!

I am excited to know what 2018 has in store for us and on behalf of everyone at Sembawang Town Council, I wish you and your loved ones an abundance of wealth and health!
