Marine Parade Town Council has reversed its decision to prohibit its residents from playing chess at block 11 of Haig Road. it took down the poster and also apologised for putting it up. The posters informed residents that they were banned from playing chess in common areas.
A Marine Parade Town Council spokesman said the three posters, which it put up at the void deck and covered walkway of the block in early January, were a mistake.
“We acknowledge our oversight for the content of the poster which does not reflect our intention well. As such, we would like to apologise for the wrong context of our poster,” said the spokesman.
“We admit that it’s a mistake by our side. We do not actually ban chess in common areas. We just wanted to deter people from gathering and blocking the way,” she added, referring to the covered walkway between Block 11 and Block 12.
New “please be considerate” posters have now replaced the ‘no chess playing” posters. The new signs also reminded residents to not obstruct the linkway and to keep their volume down after 10pm.
Yesterday the town council in a Facebook message said that it took the drastic measure to deal with chess players who were causing a nuisance and are playing till late night.Follow us on Social Media
