IT was the biggest gathering of the year at a settlement occupied by the descendants of Solomon Islanders.
Although they are a closely knit community, it was the first time they got together for a purpose.
The aim of the Solomon descendants living at Waidradra settlement was to raise funds to build a vicarage.
Most of the Solomon descendants in the country are Anglicans, as the Anglican Church played a major role in rebuilding the lives of Solomon Islanders who stayed behind in Fiji.
Likewise, there is an Anglican Church at the settlement in Navua.
On Saturday, the Solomon descendants, their families and friends got together during the church bazaar.
Waidradra Anglican Church's head priest Father Demesi Sitei said plans for the vicarage were drawn up a long time ago.
"But we are moving now and this was the first fundraising for the project," he said.
"Our target is to raise $10,000 but if we can't, then we will have other fundraising events."
Mr Sitei said support from the Solomon descendants' community was good.
He said Fijians of Indian descent who were members of the Anglican Church in Waidradra also supported the bazaar.
