This week was filled with programmes involving a school assembly talk for Anglo-Chinese School (Junior) sponsored by Singapore Press Holdings (280 pax), a River Monster Programme for Bedok Green Secondary sponsored by Goldman Sachs (20 pax), a kayak programme for Essence Digital (26 pax), bike and foot programme for Salesforce (18 pax), a pedal-boat programme for Ontic Engineering (12 pax) and a corporate talk to Hotelbed (24 pax). We also played host to MPA this week. During the week, we finally managed to take over the donated boat from NParks from St. John’s Island (see photos). Lots of repair work to do. We would also like to thank NParks for the delivery of foot bricks in such a short time.
While we continue to sight Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs) and Power-Assisted Bicycles (PEBs) around, we are still awaiting for our Authority Letter from LTA. Illegal fishing continues to be a challenging situation as many were still sighted using live bait and fishing outside approved fishing zones. Most of them are friendly to our engagement although some may still simply ignore. There were a total of 10 fishing engagements this week. Our Sunday bike patrol team engaged a Malay man under Sir Arthur’s Bridge using a net. He is apparently the same person that we engaged a few months back who was residing at the public toilet there. He told our bike patrol team that “PUB gave him permission” to use the cast net. Regardless, he still complied at the end.
We have a total of 29 members on duty this weekend and our volunteers engaged a total of 88 pax for anti-littering. Indiscriminate parking and disposal of shared bikes remain as a big challenge.
