In 2014, Kwan Mun Hau hosted a banquet for 2000 people celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of their move to their new site. Invited dignitaries spoke, and unicorn dancers paid respects at the ancestral halls and shrines. By this time, Tsuen Wan district had been divided. It is governed in part by the District Council. Residents continue to form associations to meet social needs, although some new forms have emerged.
