Harbour Views: What is your plan for Central and Tamar?

Do you agree with Government? Do you agree with the harbour planners? Do you have other ideas? Do you want a better plan? Here is your chance – three constructive events to help Government and politicians create a harbour-front Hong Kong residents can proudly take their guests to.

This Sunday, April 30, 2006, 2:30 to 5:00 pm, on Tamar

On this last day before Tamar closes to the public, you can your voice be heard and to let your ideas be seen. You are invited to make or bring a kite with your wish for Tamar, and help break the record for kite flying in Hong Kong. As there is lots of space, anyone with a performance or activity is welcome to make this a fun day.

‘Our Tamar Day’ is organized by Action Group on Protection of the Harbour, United Social Service Central Limited, Office of Legislative Councilor Dr Kwok Ka Ki, Society for the Protection of the Harbour, Hong Kong Alternatives, Friends of the Harbour and Designing Hong Kong Harbour District.
