Dear Residents
I am pleased to inform you that a Gardening Interest Group (GIG) has been formed by a group of fellow residents. It is led by Mr. Sim Chor Meng (30 CW), mini-landscape hobbist / enthusiast Mr. Tony Yau (65 CW) and 5 others.

We invite you to join the Gardening Group by contacting Mr. Tony at his blog:
http://gardenoftony.blogspot.com/
You will be able to get good advice on your gardening needs. Membership is free.
We are also happy to inform you that a BBQ pit (see attached picture) has been built at the children playground and we are in the process of regularising it with the authority. Once it is ready, we hope to open it to "booking" by residents

Once again, remember to visit Tony's blog and see the many wonderful mini-landscaped gardens that he has helped our residents to create.

Happy viewing and gardening,

Lighting up of foot path between C Rise and C Walk Completed

[Updated on 09/09/2009]

Dear Residents

We are proud to announce that, under the "Community Improvement Projects Committee" Funding, LTA have completed the project of installing bollard lightings to the foot path between Corporation Walk and Corporation Rise. These lightings have certainly lighted up the dark foot path during the night. It has enhanced the security of our estate. Our residents now can feel more secured when they use the footpath to walk between the National Parks Connector and our estate. The row of bollards lightings are certainly a beautiful sight in our estate. Even our good neighbours from the nearby HDB estate are enjoying these benefits.

This project was made possible by your Neighbourhood Committee, with the strong support from our Minister for Finance, MP for Jurong GRC, Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam. We owe a big thank you to him.

We will continue to work with the various authorities and agencies to further improve the communal facilities in our estate.

Best wishes

Irresponsible Burning at Fitness Corner - Pls Own up

[Updated on 05/09/2009]

Dear Residents of Lakeside Grove

We like to appeal to the irresponsible person who burned his Hungry Ghost's paper money at the garden next to the fitness corner (at Corp Rise), to come forward and identify himself.

Please take a look at the photograph which shows the damage to the grass which are now dead and will not recover unless it is replanted with fresh turf. We would appreciate if the culprit would volunteer to pay for the damage and we can get NParks to carry out the repair.

This is a very selfish and uncivic conscious act. People who wish to burn paper money should either burn it in their own garden or burn it in a metal bin.

We also look forward to receiving information from anyone who knows who is the culprit.

We believe the burning was carried between midnight last night and tonight.

Thank you.

Regards
Lakeside Grove NC
