HUNDREDS of Choa Chu Kang residents got their feet wet yesterday morning in activities such as a mass swim, a water telematch and a tug-of-war in the swimming pool.

They were among 2,500 people at the sports festival organised by the community sports clubs from Chua Chu Kang GRC and Hong Kah North single ward. The event at Choa Chu Kang Sports and Recreation Centre, which aimed to promote a healthy lifestyle and bonding within the community, was launched by Health Minister Gan Kim Yong.

Tampines GRC also held a community sports festival at Tampines Junior College yesterday morning. It was organised by the Tampines GRC Constituency Sports Club and grassroots organisations, and supported by the North East Community Development Council.
