Dear Friends,


“Outside Coney Island west entrance”

In our weekly endeavours, the Waterways Watch Society has remained steadfast in our commitment to environmental preservation, though certain concerns demand urgent attention from key stakeholders such as the National Environment Agency (NEA), National Parks Board (NParks), and the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA).

A glaring issue has emerged at the entrance of the highly promoted and talked-about Coney Island, an area currently resembling a ‘no man’s land’ with an unsightly and disgraceful appearance. We urgently call upon NEA, NParks, and URA to address this matter, as the condition not only detracts from the beauty of the area but also contradicts the concerted efforts to promote and conserve this natural haven. Collaboration and swift action from these agencies are crucial to uphold the integrity of Coney Island and preserve its appeal for both residents and visitors alike.

Happy New Year Friends and Members! May we be safe and clean while entering 2024. Thank you for your support during 2023.

Summary of Activities conducted for the Week

In summary, the following activities were done for this week:

  1. We conducted 1 CSR and 0 VIA programs which were attended by 15 participants, and together they collected a total of 31 kg of litter. It was a hectic week for us.
  2. This week a total of 42 members were involved in CSR/VIA programs, talk, patrols, administration, housekeeping duties, and training.  Two new CVL members did their OJT with our leaders this weekend. 
  3. The total trash collected by the patrol groups was 63 kg. 
    • Boat Patrol. 2 boat patrols were carried out; 2 at Marina.
    • Bike Patrol. A total of 2 Bike patrols were carried out; 1 at Punggol and 1  at Marina.
    • Pedal boat Patrol.  No pedal boat patrol was carried out.
    • Foot Patrol. No footpatrol was carried out.

Once again, we sincerely thank all members and volunteers, who came for patrol or for facilitating the CSR/VIA programs, for your time and dedication to the task. Without your support we would not have been able to achieve this. Special mention to the teachers of Pathlight who came down in strength to participate in our kayak cleanup programme. Three cheers to the teachers, students and our facilitators! Young and old, we all must care for our environment. Sustainability is the only way forward.
