AGM irons out issues

THE annual general meeting of the Suva City Crime Free Wheelbarrow Association was held yesterday at the Civic Centre in Suva.

The meeting is held every three years and aims to address issues such as the association's bylaws and election of board members.

The meeting also featured a church service.

Duavata Community Policing divisional manager Inspector Sanaila Biau who co-ordinated yesterday's AGM said: "Every three years we have the AGM, (today) here is going to be election of the president and board members for the next three years."

Wheelbarrow boys can be seen around Suva pushing groceries and other consumer items from the supermarkets and market to bus stops and other places for a small fee of $2.

The organisation works with many unemployed youths and married men with families and operates in accordance with the Suva police.

"We have already finished profiling the boys who will be pushing wheelbarrows this year.

"We have a total 80 boys," Insp Biau said.

"We want to know their background, what is their strength behind them."
