Update: 5:10PM CHRISTMAS comes early for Lomawai villagers with the opening of the new water project which will benefit more than 400 villagers.

Village headman Viliame Tabualevu said the $117,000 project was jointly funded by the villagers and the government. 

He said the villagers collected $11,500 while the balance was paid off by the government.
