Dear Friends,


“Our Important Partners, The Cleaning Force!”

While we concentrated on our mission and goals, the Waterways Watch Society did not forget one of our ‘important partners ‘- the Cleaning Force. With members’ contributions, we collected CNY Goodies and shared them with our migrant and cleaning work force. A simple gesture to say thank you and share with them the celebration of CNY.

We will continue to do what is right.

Last Thursday at Lakeside Garden an English couple was walking at the Jurong Lakeside Floating wetland and they saw what we were doing. They stopped and watched with interest and concern. They added that with so many rules and regulations, they were surprised to see the litter we picked from the bushes. The encounter was an opportunity for us to share with them our PUB Water Story and who we are and why we, Waterways Watch Society, are doing what we are doing.

Finally, Thank you for believing and supporting our effort.

Our CEO Mr Eugene Heng and Mr Ben Pike, Chief Operating Officer of  SWIRE SHIPPING officiated a Hand-Shake Ceremony acknowledging the donation of a pedal boat to Waterways Watch Society. We cannot thank enough for SWIRE SHIPPING and the many other donors in the past who have stepped forward to support us in our effort to spread the message of keeping our waterways clean and safe.
