LCSD urges public to keep venues clean during Christmas

     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) today (December 22) appealed to members of the public to keep venues clean and mind their safety while celebrating Christmas.

     LCSD will join with other government departments to implement a series of measures over Christmas (December 24 to 26) to maintain cleanliness and safety at LCSD venues, especially in the Hong Kong Cultural Centre (HKCC), Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, Avenue of Stars (AOS), Middle Road Children's Playground, Tsim Sha Tsui East Waterfront Podium Garden and Urban Council Centenary Garden where large crowds are expected.

     An LCSD spokesman said, "Our staff, together with law enforcement teams of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department and the Police, will step up patrols at our venues in the Tsim Sha Tsui area and take action against littering, illegal hawking and vandalism of public property. Those who litter will be liable to a fixed penalty of $1,500.

     "In crowded areas, people should remain calm and mind their safety. To facilitate pedestrian flow, all removable items in the areas will be taken away," he added.

     The public announcement systems at the HKCC and AOS will also broadcast anti-littering and crowd management messages in Cantonese, Putonghua and English on a regular basis during the holidays.
