Sayang Sembawang December 2017


Dear Residents

How time flies! We are down to the final lap of 2017, anticipating a brand new year together as one community.

Looking back, this year has indeed been a fulfilling journey for many in Sembawang GRC. For one, Sembawang Town Council had undergone a term of changes of our Town Councillors since October. I would like to take the opportunity to extend my gratitude to our outgoing Councillors for their past two years of service and warmly welcome our new term of Town Councillors (Page 3). Let us continue to work together to build a comfortable home for our residents!

There were also many happenings in the last few months of 2017, and they were nothing short of eventful.  As a community, we tasted the fruits of the harvest at the Sembawang GRC Community Garden Project (Pages 4-5). We also did our part to upkeep the cleanliness and greenery in our neighbourhood. Tree Planting Days were held across Sembawang GRC (Pages 6-7), marking our commitment towards a clean and green Town for our residents to live in. Residents of different races also gathered together to celebrate the triumph of light over darkness this Deepavali (Pages 8-9), embracing a multi-racial home in Sembawang GRC. In a bid to embrace diversity and cultural differences, residents gathered at the annual One Community Fiesta for a time of fun and cheer (Page 10).

Even as we approach the last stretch of the year, this should also be a time for rejuvenation for all. Treat yourselves to a mini adventure as you explore places to visit this December Holidays with your family and loved ones (Pages 14). Discover new food places in the vicinity for a change, such as the newly constructed Yishun Park Hawker Centre (Page 11). Experience adrenaline rush as you visit one of the most extensive playgrounds in our newly revamped Admiralty Park (Page 12)!

On behalf of Sembawang Town Council, I sincerely wish all residents a fruitful year in 2018. Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year in advance!


Mr Vikram Nair
Chairman of Sembawang Town Council
