The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) held the Kwai Tsing District Greening Carnival today (May 11) at Tsing Yi Northeast Park, with the aim of promoting greater public awareness of tree preservation and greening.
Sponsored by the Kwai Tsing District Council (DC), the carnival offered a wide range of activities including green-themed game stalls, tree cutting demonstrations and exhibitions showcasing tree-care equipment and inspection tools. The fun-filled carnival attracted around 500 visitors.
Officiating guests of the event, District Officer (Kwai Tsing), Mr Alan Lo; Chairman of Kwai Tsing DC, Mr Fong Ping; and Chief Leisure Manager (New Territories West) of the LCSD, Miss Sylvia Tang, presented certificates of appointment to 10 Kwai Tsing DC members who have been newly recruited as Green Ambassadors. The Green Ambassadors signed a charter to pledge their help in delivering tree-care messages to the public and encourage greater support for community greening activities. To take the lead in the promotion of greening work, the officiating guests and Green Ambassadors took part in a tree planting activity after the charter signing ceremony.
