Tampines Grassroots leaders receive National Day Award
10 of Tampines’ Grassroots leaders were recently given recognition in appreciation of their valuable contribution to the community.
Presented to the volunteers at the Singapore National Day Awards on 28 October 2018, Mr Tan Nguan Teck (Tampines Changkat) received the Public Service Star (Bar) Bintang Bakti Masyarakat (Lintang).
Mr Ho Ji Meng, Jimmy (Tampines Central), Mr Wong See Choon (Tampines North) and Mr Soh Nga Kok, James (Tampines East) received the Public Service Star (Bintang Bakti Masyarakat);

So what does the award signify? The Public Service Star (BBM) that was instituted in 1963 is awarded to individuals who have contributed valuable public service to the people of Singapore, or who has distinguished himself in the field of arts and letters, sports, the sciences, business, the professions and the labour movement.
The Public Service Medal (PBM), on the other hand, was instituted in 1973, and may be awarded to anyone who has rendered commendable public service in Singapore, or for his achievement in the various fields, including arts and letters, sports, the sciences, and business.
Our heartiest congratulations to the 10 grassroots leaders of Tampines for the commendable efforts to making Tampines a better Home for residents.
