SINGAPORE: Some 300 residents from Sembawang Zone J took part in a Familiarisation and Bonding Party on Saturday evening.

Eighty of them were residents new to the Woodlands neighbourhood.

National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan, who is also MP for Sembawang, attended the party, which is part of the Housing and Development Board's Integration of Heartlanders programme.

It aims to engage new residents in mature estates.

This is the first time the neighbourhood is taking part in the programme.

With the good response seen, the constituency may look at having other neighbourhoods take part in the programme in the future.
