CSD Sports Association to hold 66th Autumn Fair this Saturday

     The Correctional Services Department (CSD) Sports Association will hold the CSD's 66th Autumn Fair at the football field adjacent to Stanley Prison on November 3 (Saturday). Members of the public are welcome to attend. Admission is free.

     The theme of this year's fair is "We Promote Inclusiveness in Full Vigour". The venue, the stalls and some handicrafts made by persons in custody will be themed around sports to reflect the creativity and vitality of the correctional officers and persons in custody. Elderly persons and ethnic minority members are invited to participate in the fair to promote social inclusion.

     A café called "Harmony Café" will be set up in the Theme Corner of the fair, where milk tea and pastries made by persons in custody of Cape Collinson Correctional Institution will be served to the public. The café enables the persons in custody to put into practice the knowledge and skills they have gained from vocational training in food and beverages at the institution. There will also be booths selling items made by persons in custody including furniture, wooden decorations, stationery, rattan products, plants and handicrafts.

     Miss Hong Kong 2018 will also attend and tour the booths to promote charity and rehabilitation work.

      Various organisations have been invited to perform at the fair, including a military band performance by the People’s Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison, a motorcycling performance by the Civil Aid Service, a Chinese martial arts performance, a cheerleading performance by an award-winning school cheering team and a marching band performance. In addition, the dragon and lion dance team of the CSD Sports Association and the CSD Dog Unit will perform at the fair.

     The Autumn Fair, a large-scale and popular public event organised by the CSD Sports Association since 1953, is now in its 66th year. After deducting costs, the funds raised from sales and donations through various channels at the Fair will go to voluntary agencies. The Fair also provides opportunities for persons in custody to contribute to the community.

     The Fair will be held at the football field adjacent to Stanley Prison (99 Tung Tau Wan Road) from 10.45am to 5pm on November 3.
