$40k project

A VILLAGE in Rakiraki will soon have a new hall, thanks to the efforts of its women's group.

The Vunitogoloa Women's Club has about $6000 in its bank account to kick-start the construction of the village hall.

Village chairman Varayame Tavualevu said the women informed a village meeting last week they were ready to start with the project.

Mr Tavualevu said construction would cost between $30,000 and $40,000.

"The women's club raised more than $6000 from a soli by the women only and they have told us they are ready to start with the foundation work," he said.

"But since more money is needed to construct the hall, we will knock on doors for financial assistance to make the project a success.

"I urge the people of Vunitogoloa Village who are living in other parts of the country and the world to assist in this project."

Mr Tavualevu said the women's group would organise other fundraising activities to meet their objective.
