“Our Dedicated Volunteers, Thank You!”
It was still a festive week, hence it was expected that there were no programmes conducted. But, whilst many took the time to enjoy the holidays and having time to catch up with loved ones, our members and volunteers included in their holiday time to continue keeping their passion and for the environment burning. The inclement weather did not stop them from doing the needful. Their simple gesture of community service would go a long way to soften the hearts of many who witnessed their actions. The small grin and smile, a nod of gratitude and an appreciative glance by some of the people at the parks were enough to motivate our small band of volunteers. Keep up the good work, dear members and volunteers.
The continuous heavy rain in the earlier few days had brought forth the reality of the littering problem to light. We certainly cannot put the blame on the cleaners for not doing their job. It’s an immense task. Waterways Watch Society would like to thank our partners and cleaners from NEA, NParks and PUB for their arduous effort and work to keep the environment clean and safe for all. Our people need to be better educated and informed of this.
