The Republic’s first government-built neighbourhood centres in over a decade will be significantly upgraded from their more functional counterparts seen in the heartlands now. Located in new estates in Punggol, Hougang and Sembawang, the four new neighbourhood centres will sport waterfront features, lush terraces, and connections to public transport, and have “green” systems like rainwater harvesting.

CapitaLand to donate S$1.3m to charity

CapitaLand had to cancel its special SG50 heritage trail Saturday morning (Oct 3) because of the haze. However, the hazy conditions could not keep the organisation's spirits down, as it continued with its indoor carnival at Raffles City instead. President Tony Tan Keng Yam was Guest-of-Honour. During the carnival, the organisation announced that it would be donating a total of S$1.3 million to charity. CapitaLand had committed S$300,000 in March to the President's Challenge. The S$1 million donation, announced on Saturday, will go towards helping underprivileged children in Asia.
