More facilities, activities at 80 Café Corners in North East District

By Saifulbahri Ismail, Channel NewsAsia, 18 Oct 2014

Residents in the North East District can soon look forward to playing board games while having coffee with friends in their neighbourhood. The North East Community Development Council (CDC) is progressively enhancing its 80 Cafe Corners with more facilities and social activities for neighbours to bond with each other.

The new Cafe Corners will have programmes for residents such as arts and crafts activities and health talks. A social space at Blk 718 Tampines Street 72 is among those that have been upgraded to a Cafe Corner PLUS.

The CDC is even decentralising its district meetings at the various Cafe Corners. There will be 18 sharing sessions over the next four weeks to update residents on the progress of the CDC and plans for the year ahead.

"This provides an important platform for neighbours to come together informally to interact, to bond with one another, to connect with one another,” said Education Minister Heng Swee Keat, MP for Tampines GRC. “It also provides a useful platform for us to reach out to residents to explain important policies, and how residents can make full use of these policies.”
