Youths beat in the new year

YOUTHS from Cunningham took to the streets on Saturday afternoon beating drums and shouting to commemorate the end of their new year celebrations.

The group, which came from Cunningham Stage 1, met at Villa Place where they began their march through all four stages of Cunningham.

They turned up with smiles on their faces ready to make noise and beats with their bodies.

Some even sported colourful wigs, painted faces and vibrantly coloured clothing.

People in neighbouring houses and streets came out to watch the small group and cheered them on as they made their way through the streets welcoming 2014.

Following the march, the group also organised a small drumline competition between the youths of the four stages in order to make the procession a little more lively.

The competition was well received from onlookers who all took the time to watch, laugh and officially put a close to 2013.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Police Force have continued to urge members of the public to enjoy their celebrations cautiously as accidents could happen.

In a statement issued yesterday, police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said it was important that when celebrating, parents kept a close watch on their children to be sure they were not at risk.
