SINGAPORE: Punggol South residents are getting a new standalone childcare facility, expected to be completed in six months.
A citizens—on—patrol neighbourhood watch group travelling on bicycles will also begin to operate in the precinct.
This was announced at a familiarisation and bonding party held in the constituency on Sunday, attended by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean.
The event was staged to welcome new residents in the precinct.
The activities held there encouraged residents to interact and learn more about their neighbourhood.
"The most important thing is bonding for our residents so that if there’s any problems that we face in the community, we can overcome these together as a community," said Mr Teo.
Mr Teo called on residents who faced difficulties to approach grassroots leaders who will be there to help.
