Netizens poke fun at 'no playing' sign in Sengkang playground
A sign which said children were not allowed to play in an HDB playground in Sengkang was taken down quickly yesterday after it drew ridicule from residents and netizens.
Located at Block 323B at Sengkang East Way, the sign was put up because residents complained that children at the playground were making too much noise, said the chairman of Ang Mo Kio Town Council, Dr Lam Pin Min.
"We did receive feedback in the past from young families of newborn children being woken up as a result," said Dr Lam, whose town council oversees the area where the playground is located.
But the town council has not received such complaints for a few years now, and when it received media queries on the matter yesterday, the sign was quickly removed.
