FOOD DONATION DRIVE
MCST 2345 (Costa Rhu Condominium) is organising a food donation drive in support of Food from the Heart, a charity with IPC status which feeds the needy through its six core programmes, one of which is the Community Food Pack Programme.
Under this programme, they distributed 35,500 food packs to 3,600 families in 2018.
The main source of food items in these food packs is donations from generous people like yourselves. In order to make it easier for you to donate food items (as per the list). We at MCST 2345 (Costa Rhu Condominium) have organised this food donation drive from 11th October 2019 to 21st October 2019.
The food donation box is at the CLUBHOUSE
Residents are requested to donate generously to help needy families. For details of food items required, see ‘Food Donation Wish List’.
Human Waste in Swimming Pool
We are deeply disturbed by the recent spate of discovery of human waste in the swimming pool. It has happened several times in the past.
Costa Rhu residents have expressed concern, disgust and anger at this, and have exhorted the MCST to ensure this does not happen again. The MCST and Council have decided to take the following action:
Please note that the MCST has no choice but to take such drastic measures to ensure these disgusting acts do not take place. If you witness any such acts, please come forward to provide information.
We thank you for your kind cooperation to make Costa Rhu a liveable estate.

Greetings to you from the Council. We trust that you have been well.
The Council is intending to hold a session with the SPs to update you on matters within our Estate. It’s like a chit- chat session with you.
As you may be aware , projects like the recent upgrading of the BBQ facilities has given a new look to a facility that we have all enjoyed over the years. We would like to hear your feedback on some plans that we have. There are also plans to talk briefly about the need to look into a programme of lift upgrading to be implemented. Several other projects for the estate may also be brought up for discussion.
The session will be a great way to get engaged in discussing matters and we look forward to seeing you there at the Marina Room on 31st August 2019 at 10.00 am. Please inform the Management Office of your intention to attend due to the limited space that we have.

Decision taken by Council on the issue of stray cats within the estate.
We write on a matter of common interest within our estate. The Council had over time, taken feedback on the issue of stray cats within the estate from 2 distinct groups. We thank them for making their representations to us and their input have enabled us to make the decisions that we have now made.
There is a group that have no issue with the presence of cats as they control the rat population that had plagued the estate many years ago. A decision was then made by the Council at the advice of the pest consultants many years ago to introduce cats to in order to manage the rat problem. That has led to an effective control of the rat issue but there is now a problem of the growth of the population of stray cats.
There is another group concerned about the growth of the population of stray cats within the estate. The concern expressed is the large numbers of stray that lead to other issues. They report that cats drink even from the swimming pool, the noise that they make in the wee hours of the morning and the complaints of damage to furniture at the ground floor units. There are also reports of young children (and even adults) being frightened by the cats.
The Council has taken time to deliberate on the matter. Taking into account the feedback and representations which the Council had deliberated on, the Council has decided that cats like most animals within the estate would be treated as pets owned by residents. As such, no stray cats would be permitted. From that decision taken, the Council now issues the following directives:
As a request, the Council asks that owners take all reasonable steps to keep their pet cats within their homes and premises.
With the above directives in place, we trust that the problem of stray cats within the estate would be eradicated and managed effectively.
Dear Residents ,
The barbecue pits’ renovation work is more or less done but there are still some niggling defects.

Please do reach out to the MO if you have any questions
We are on schedule to re-open the tennis courts on 27th April for your use. We will re-open the booking systems (for Saturday onwards) at 9am on Friday (26th April).
