LCSD urges public to keep places clean during New Year

     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) today (December 29) appealed to members of the public to keep places clean and mind their safety while celebrating New Year's Eve.

     The LCSD will work together with other government departments to implement a series of measures on New Year's Eve to maintain cleanliness and safety at LCSD venues, especially at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre (HKCC) Piazza, the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, the Avenue of Stars (AOS), Middle Road Children's Playground, Tsim Sha Tsui East Waterfront Podium Garden, Urban Council Centenary Garden, the West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade, Sha Tin Park, and Sha Tin Town Hall Plaza and City Art Square, where large crowds are expected to participate in the countdown and celebration activities.

     An LCSD spokesman said, "Our staff, together with law enforcement teams of relevant departments, will step up patrols at our venues in the areas of Tsim Sha Tsui, Sha Tin Park and Sha Tin Town Hall and take action against littering, illegal hawking and vandalism of public property.

     "People are urged to keep places clean and tidy while celebrating New Year's Eve. Defacing and damaging public property is prohibited at all venues. People should take away all their belongings when departing the venues and should not leave trash behind. Those who litter will be liable to a fine of $1,500.

     "In crowded areas, people should remain calm and take care of their own safety," he added.

     The public announcement systems at the HKCC Piazza, the AOS, Sha Tin Park, and Sha Tin Town Hall Plaza and City Art Square will also broadcast anti-littering and crowd management messages in Cantonese, Putonghua and English on a regular basis during the holiday.
