So the Aljunied Town Council has replaced a stone table and 5 stone seats because of gambling activities with these "elderly friendly benches". Er, 2 seats don't make a bench, people.
And how is this an improvement over 5 seats and a table? And how much more accessible are these seats compared to the old round stone ones?
Oh, the traces of the former stone tables and seats have been cemented over too. So nice of them to cover those up.
Letter to a resident who wrote in to ask:
Thank you for your e-mail to Mr Yeo Guat Kwang.
We have received complaints of gambling activities at this stone table and stools . These complaints were brought to the attention of the Police for their investigation and follow up.
On our part, we have a programme to phase out the stone table and stools with more elderly friendly benches under our Barrier Free Accessibility Project. Residents can look forward to use the new benches when they are installed by the end of the week.
