Hotel group helps village

Maciu Malo
Sunday, April 07, 2013

THE Best Western Group of Hotels has expanded its services to the local community, donating barbed wires and lawn mowers to Naevuevu villagers in Sigatoka.

The presentation yesterday was prompted by a group of managers from the company's Australasia properties who attended a conference at the Shangri-La Resort and Spa last year.

Hotel Australasia strategic business development manager Geoff Mahony said they were impressed by the local villagers and understood the hardships experienced after cyclones.

"We were thinking of something we could do to help so we had a fundraiser to assist the villagers recover from the losses," Mr Mahony said.

Mr Mahony said the group planned to assist other communities.

Shangri-La Resort director of events management Jennifer Grayson said the assistance would be helpful to the villagers. Village headman Asesela Yamoyamo thanked the group and said the barbed wire would be used to fence the village boundaries to control the movement of animals.
