• Cocktail Reception at the British High Commission

    2 January 2018

    We were delighted to have the chance to host an Autumn Cocktail Reception promoting the Club at the British High Commissioner, H.E Scott Wightman’s residence, Eden Hall on 24 October 2017. The event was sponsored by construction advisory and disputes law firm, Pinsent Masons and attended by over 100 current and future members of the Club and construction and engineering industry peers from Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.

    The event was a great opportunity to raise the profile of the Club and draw some attention to the great work we have been doing recently with our beneficiaries. Guests were able to network with peers whilst enjoying the hospitality of one of Singapore’s most exclusive and special venues.

    Council members worked hard on the night to drum up some new memberships (on the spot!) and to raise over SGD 2,000 for the Club in raffle ticket purchases.

    Singapore Club President, Jon Howes and the High Commissioner raffled off the tickets at the end of the evening and five lucky winners walked away with football tickets to the Battle of the Masters at the Sports Hub.

    The evening would not have been possible without the support of Pinsent Masons and the British Chamber of Commerce to whom we are extremely grateful. Special thanks to Scott Wightman from the British High Commission for the superb hospitality and hosting the event at his home, Eden Hall.

    Quote from H.E Scott Wightman

    “It was a great pleasure to welcome the Lighthouse Club in Singapore to Eden Hall. Its development in Asia over the last 30 years has been impressive and its work to raise safety standards in the industry is truly impressive.”

    Curry Quiz

    Our Annual Curry Quiz Night took place on the 30th September 2017 where quiz fans gathered together for an evening at the Singapore Indian Association.

    The fundraising event was jointly organised by the Lighthouse Club and Society of Construction Law (Singapore) to raise money for our beneficiaries. The event was a sell-out weeks before and had over 60 people attending, raising a total of SIN$2,000. Both organisations are proud that the synergy between our respective memberships continues to contribute strongly to a worthy cause.

    We had the pleasure of having Mr Sid Bhalla as the Quiz Master for the evening.

    There were 5 categories – literature, general knowledge, geography, 70s and music. Sid did a great job of keeping the scores for the 8 teams and it was a close fight between the top 2 teams. Some of the younger team members may have muttered about the retro bias behind a number of questions but there were equally befuddling queries for the older crowd in having to decipher the names of Hip Hop artists amongst others. Participants were also treated to a buffet of Indian delights and drinks including the famous Mutton Curry courtesy of the Singapore Indian Association. Children kept themselves busy as a Kids Colouring competition was held while the adults put on their thinking caps.

    Your authors looked at each other quizzically when trying to remember the mind behind “Dr Zhivago” as well as the construction dates of dubious motorways in rural England.

    At the end of the night 3rd place went to Team “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”, winning 2 Nox Dine in the Dark Vouchers and 2 Masters Football tickets; 2nd place went to Team “Tigers” who received 4 bottles of wine. Last but not least, the Winner for the 2017 Lighthouse Curry Quiz went to Team “Dublin Down – Put a Cork in it”, taking home 8 Nox Dine in the Dark vouchers. All of us went home winners though after a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

    The Lighthouse Club Singapore and Society of Construction Law (Singapore) would like to thank everybody who got involved in the fun and for donating generously throughout the night. Both organisations look forward to the next edition of the Quiz Night and to more fellow members joining in the fun.
