OUR GRASSROOTS ADVISER

February 2020 Message

Dear Residents

 

Doing our Part for the Earth

We are still in the Lunar New Year season, a time of the year when we look to better days ahead. Let’s continue to build our community and nation together. After the Budget on Feb 18th, let me know your feedback through email or our post-Budget dialogue.

One of the major threats to our nation is climate change. We must do our part for the Earth. We have another active recycling point with Tzu Chi at Block 798, from 9am-11.30am on every second Sunday of the month. This is in addition to the ones at Blocks 805, 841 and 873. We will also launch our GRC’s green initiative, which will spread “green” initiatives throughout our GRC and support residents to realise their “green” proposals.

Tzu Chi has also partnered our GRC to set up a Tzu Chi Humanistic Youth Centre. Located at Yishun Central, it offers aerial yoga and other exercise classes, woodworking and other craft activities, and two cafés. There’s also a free studying corner and a co-working space. They also host many community and green activities for youth.

Finally, we are in the flu season and there is the outbreak of the Wuhan coronavirus. It has killed several people in China and can spread from person to person. Please practice good hygiene, cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough, wash your hands regularly, see the doctor if not feeling well, and look out for updates from the Health Ministry.

  • You’re invited to the following events:
  • CCC Post Budget Dialogue: 23 Feb, Sunday, 9.30am–12pm at Nee Soon South CC
  • Dance Marathon: 23 Feb, Sunday, 10am – 8pm, at Nee Soon South CC MPH
  • Nee Soon GRC WEC International Women’s Day dialogue with Minister Ong Ye Kung: 1 March, Sunday, 10am-1pm, at Nee Soon Central CC (For women only, tickets available in our CC)

Stay healthy and safe!
