Dear Friends,


From Let’s Go Green to Oil Spill!

It was a week of meetings and corporate programme CSRs. We were interviewed by a student from Perth (Jet) doing journalism, had a meeting with 3-degrees on a potential enhanced partnership, had zoom calls with two corporations, and had 6 CSR programmes. In addition, we had a one-star course for 9 members conducted by Kian Seng, with Darren Tan and Patrick Wang assisting over the weekend. We were pleasantly surprised to have two long-term members visit us this weekend while on holiday in Singapore – Patricia our former kayak leader/trainer and Serban our former active kayak facilitator. 

Besides the normal members’ patrol, the week’s highlight was our booth at the launch of Go Green at Republic Polytechnic. We had many interesting engagement opportunities with visitors attending. The garden crew was in full strength on Sunday with some ladies having a staycation at WWS over this long weekend. On Monday, a Public Holiday, Lakeside had 7 members present doing some improvement work on the pontoon using Solar Panels. We also like to share sightings of fishing outside authorised zones, using of live bait and unauthorised hawking still seen around the Kallang basin. 

WWS also concerned about the oil spill incident along the west and east coasts that happened last Saturday. We helped to circulate the volunteer recruitment form of NPark and MPA among our members. 

Another eventful week at Waterways Watch. Thank you members.
