SINGAPORE: Residents of Serangoon Central gathered at the Braddell Heights Community Hub to recognise the contributions of Singapore's Pioneer Generation on Saturday evening.

The Braddell Heights Town Night is the first community-centric flagship event at the hub, since it was transformed from an old bus interchange in February.

Manpower Minister Tan Chuan Jin and Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong were among those who graced the event.

It focused on the rich heritage of the area. There were several blasts from the past, such as a rickshaw, and food and games from the 1980s and 1990s.

The organisers of the event -- Braddell Heights Grassroots Organisations and Marine Parade Town Council -- said the town night aimed to bond residents by bringing back memories of Braddell Heights and its development through the years.
