Advisory on Keeping Monkeys at bay

Monkeys in the wild forage and feed on insects, fruits and leaves found in the forest. They serve as important seed dispersal agents for many of the forest tree species, thereby ensuring the survival of the next generation of the tree species and the forest.  Read more...

Monkeys situation at Lakeside Grove

Dear Residents

1. Since August, there had been sightings of monkeys in our neighborhood. Several residents gave feedback that there were occasions of these monkeys entering their houses to look for food.

2. Towards the end of September, the issue seemed to have quietened down when there was hardly any reported incidents.

3. However recently, some of our residents spotted one of the monkeys at our backyards and the latest was last Friday, 21 October 2011. The monkeys were spotted at 2 different locations and has entered in at least one of our residents' home to look for food.

4. The NC has contacted Agri-Food and Veterinary of Singapore (AVA) to report the incidents and was informed that several residents have requested for the traps to be delivered to their houses since August.

5. We appreciate if you could reply to this email if you have requested for it so that we will know how many cages have been loaned to the residents in their neighbourhood. We hope to monitor this situation and give feedback to AVA to step up their actions in providing assistance to our residents.

6. Should you sight the monkeys in your premises, do not hesitate to contact AVA at 62221211 during office hours. You can also email them at the following email address: ava_email@ava.gov.sg.

7. We do hope that residents exercise caution when confronted with incidents involving the monkeys. Attached is an advisory from AVA on how to keep monkeys at bay. We have also attached photographs of the monkeys taken by one of our residents, Mr Chandra. Thank you.

 Warmest Regards
Chairman of Lakeside Grove NC

Lakeside Grove Youth Chapter (YC)

Dear Youths, 

Lakeside Grove NC would like to invite you to join our very own Youth Chapter(YC). Youth Chapters is a new initiative to get more youths (12-35 Years old) to volunteer, and it is basically made up of a group of youths who are living in the same estate. By being a member of the YC, you will be able to engage in community service programmes, environmental projects, dialogues or networking and social activities.

At this stage, we are recruiting exco-members, also known as core members. As a core member, you will attain leadership positions within the YC. You will be put in a position to lead the organization of activities or events which promote social cohesion within our estate. You will also be able to organize interest groups which can vary from interests in sports (E.g. Basketball/Dodgeball) to the performing arts (E.g. Breakdancing). 

If you are a secondary/pre-university/ tertiary student, being in the YC will also allow you to gain CIP(community involvement programme) hours which can contribute to your testimonial/CCA record (CIP hours can be recorded every time you attend meetings/plan events). At the same time, you will be able to take on leadership positions which might be useful for your testimonials when documented.

So, if you are still residing at Lakeside Grove Estate and are interested in becoming a core member of the YC, or if you have any enquiries regarding the YC, do contact Lakeside Grove NC via our email address: lakesidegrove@yahoo.com.sg.

Thank you!

Photos: Farm & Vegetable Farm Tour

It was perfect weather for a Farm tour! All 40 tickets were sold and residents gathered at 830 sharp before heading off to see Jurong Frog Farm. A educational tour was given and residents got a chance to feel and touch the American Bull Frog and feed them! They also got a chance to try the freshly fried frog meat for the those who dare :)

Next we were off to 1st Aeroponic Farm in Singapore. A informative video presentation was given before a tour guide brought the residents around the farm. Lunch was served and residents wasted no time trying to pick and buy the freshest vegetable and fruits from the farm.

Thank you all residents for showing the support in this event! See you again!

Photos of New Year Party@Lakeside Grove

It was a cool and nice weather to have a party! Guests were streaming in at 5:30pm and they wasted no time in the kite painting competition and face painting. The Emcee, Nana, was also there to entertain the crowd with her jokes and singing. We were again very honoured to have Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam (Minister for Finance) to grace and occasion and presented the Certificate of Appointments to the Lakeside Grove NC. Sumptous halal buffet was served and we continued to be entertained by guess who..... Miss Abigail who in the end found Chee Kiang as his husband! It was fun filled with laughter night. Cheers!!
