Capital treat for group

IT was a moment of honour for the women's fellowship of the Votualevu Methodist Church when they stepped into the parliamentary complex for the first time last week.

The group of 26 saved money throughout the year and spent it on a trip to Suva to "experience a different lifestyle", said group member Kelera Rabuku.

Ms Rabuku, who also organised parts of the trip, said it was an unconventional but great way to end the year.

"We usually have picnics or do other things as our end-of-year celebration, but this year we decided to go to Suva and visit the parliamentary complex," she said.

"We felt so honoured because we've never been there. The guide who showed us around was also very helpful."

Ms Rabuku said many of the women who went on the trip were close to 70 years but did not let that stop them "having a good time".

The group also visited Communications Fiji Limited radio station Viti FM before heading to Studio 6 for the night.

"We had dinner at the Vine Yard Palace Restaurant on the last night," Ms Rabuku said.
