Don’t be surprised or alarmed if you see these SCDF ambulances on standby at our CCs and @ourtampineshub. 🤔 We know that the precious minutes following a call for a medical emergency can literally mean life or death to a grandparent, parent, spouse or child. To provide as much help as we can to our residents and improve response time, we’ll be supporting @myscdf in the additional deployment of their ambulances during peak hours at 6 of our CCs - Bedok CC, Chong Pang CC, Keat Hong CC, Our Tampines Hub, Pasir Ris Elias CC and Radin Mas CC! 💪🏼 #pafrenz #peoplesassociation #singapore #sgcommunity #scdf #myscdf

These little guys are out to win their match! ⚽️ Do you know what game this is? Before smartphones were invented, kids worked their fingers playing Subbuteo. It's a table football game which originated all the way from the mid-1940s! 🏃🏽♂️ Mini figurines are controlled by the power of finger flicks, and just like in football - the sole objective is to score a goal. (⬅️ Swipe to the end to check out an actual game!) Hoping to create awareness of the sport in Singapore, a group of our volunteers and Subbuteo enthusiasts set up a Table Football Interest Group at Kebun Baru CC in 2006. Feel free to join in their training sessions at the CC every Thursday evening. Head on over to the Kebun Baru Doves’ FB page to find out more! 🕊 #ccPLAYS #tablefootball #ilovefootball #⚽
Brisk walking around the neighbourhood. That’s all it took for a young girl to see the good in cultivating neighbourliness and building friendships in the community. . Kang Guiling, Vice-Chairman of Woodlands CC YEC, was only 11 years old then. “My parents dragged me along (for brisk walking) every time. “Along the way, I’d be asked to help the uncles or aunties in the neighbourhood with simple things. And it felt nice.” . Now, at 28, Guiling believes she can do so much more for the community as a youth volunteer. This includes engaging other youths and giving them a platform - such as the recent post-National Day Rally Dialouge - to share their concerns and thoughts about current issues. . “I believe we (youths) have the ability to make the change we want to see. All we need is an opportunity to do so.” . #pafrenz #youthsg #youthpower #singapore #facesofpa #💪🏼
