We are getting closer and closer to National Day, and the effervescence can truly be felt through the decorations within our neighbourhood. Known to be a genial man in the neighbourhood, David Tan Cheng Chin was seen on a Saturday morning hanging buntings and donning his estate with flags. The 58-year-old has been a volunteer for 20 years and is now the Chairman of Sunbird Apollo NC . “I love my estate and I want it to be a better place for me and my neighbours. We see each ot her every day and the estate is the place that we live in, together.” David isn’t just active during festive seasons, but his committee organizes activities for various groups of people in the community. “We have people aged from 23 to 75 in our committee. Everyone has different interests, so we try to engage them in activities that they would like. When they remain engaged, it will inspire others to join us too.” He is grateful that more families are stepping forward to participate actively in the community and believes that every member adds a different colour to the neighbourhood. Although the way they meet has significantly changed in light of Covid-19, David shared that they still help neighbours with group buys, constantly chat with each other through WhatsApp and Zoom meetings. He added “We are going to have a big National Day party over Zoom, I have also arranged for kuehs to be delivered to various households on that day, to spread some cheer.” When asked why he continues being active in the committee, David candidly shared “Hmmm, there’s nothing much to it. Honestly, I just want to help my neighbours, who are more like my friends now.” Inspired by David and his neighbours? Do your part and #FlyOurFlag ! #ACaringCommunity #CelebratingAsOne
