Surprise visit timely

A VISIT from Navy officers caught Pearce Home resident manager Ruci Kava by surprise yesterday.

But in her own words, it was an answer to her prayers.

Several Navy officers visited the home at Butt Street in Suva to clean-up its surroundings and compound.

"I had no idea that they would turn up but I am so glad that they were thinking about us," Ms Kava said.

She said the Navy officers spent more than an hour clearing hedges, weeding, gardening, clearing the blocked drain and scrubbing the footpaths of the home.

"Last week I had bought some vegetable seedlings to plant and I was thinking of gardening soon. But the Navy officers' assistance was just timely.

"They have also prepared the garden for the seedlings and all we have to do now is plant."

Ms Kava said the clean-up saved the home from spending money on buying vegetables and labour for the garden.

"I won't need my garden boy maybe for a month because everything that I had wanted done has been completed by the Navy officers," she said.
