Community Club Management Committee
Mozzie Wipe Out
The Springleaf Neighborhood Committee (SNC) was formed more than ten years ago. It took off originally from a group of residents in Springleaf Gardens forming
a Residents Association that sought to look after the well-being and maintenance of common properties and occasionally organize activities for some 400 private landed homes found
in the Springleaf Estate.
Today, SNC has grown to cover the area spanning from Springleaf Estate, Springleaf Villas, Della Vale, Hong Heng Mansions, Thong Soon Gardens and the Springside (1,300 units) –
with members coming from and representing various estates serving in the committee alongside the many pioneer members.
The Committee, one out of 105 found in Singapore is considered an active one with the NC meeting once in two months and organizing various activities for the residents on a regular
basis. It also forms a strong bridge between the residents and various Government agencies to provide feedback and follow up actions. Members from SNC also make house visits regularly
to touch base with its residents. In 2006, Street reps were also recruited to boost the communication channel so that concerns and issues can be promptly resolved wherever & whenever possible.
I was born more than 10,000 years ago as part of a large mangrove swarm land. I supported life of a hundred kind and bore witness to decades of transformation - from tropical rainforest, mangroves and coastal hill forests to present modern day being, transcending time that saw humans living in kampong style tucked in a verdant corner of my expansive landscape that is bestowed with a natural habitat rich in biodiversity of creatures and animals. From Kingfishers, white banded monkeys to snakes and dragon flies, their co-existence is as harmonious as one's rhythmic heart beat in sync with breathing. In the early days, rubber plantations gave rise to employment and in the 1850s gambier and pepper cultivation started within a 18 hectare site and early modern trade-related activities began to transform the lives of our early settlers. School, clinic and mechanized transport came into reality and lives were not the same.
Gradually and over time urbanization has vastly transformed a greater part of me and what remains of my pride is the preservation of my past and remains in History of my transition. I am glad that today you can see me in my new package and can partake & enjoy the tranquility on offer with your family and friends - walk, cycle and even watch birds, breathe the fresh air and explore the biodiversity of what valuably remains.
YES! I am the new Spirngleaf Nature Park. [More]
Springleaf Neighbourhood Committee did a 2-in-1 for the very first time when they organized Parents' Day celebration on 9th June 2007 at Jumbo Serangoon Restaurant, Serangoon Gardens Country Club.
Attended by 300 residents from the Springleaf, Springside, Thong Soon Estates and Hong Heng Mansions, Er Lee Bee Wah was GOH to grace the evening filled with a delightful nine-course seafood dinner with seamless entertainment of nostalgic numbers to help parents from three generations reminisce their romantic relationship. Instead of celebrating Mothers' and Fathers' Day respectively, the organizing committee felt that both parent should be brought together at the same time to give greater significance of respect and honour both heads of the household equally. It turns out to be a hit with the residents.
Er Lee called on the residents, particularly children to honor their parents and not to forget their arduous, persevering, and patient journey in bringing us up. Good parenting is also not preordained as she recounted her own parents' challenges in bringing up her and her siblings as well as citing other examples of hardship she had come across from other families. Later in the evening, Er Lee went round to each table to greet guests and present hand gifts to parents.
