Local media mark day with walk

MEMBERS of media organisations in Suva got together for a morning walk along the Suva foreshore yesterday.

The initiative was organised by the newly-registered industrial association Fijian Media Association, which is being supported by the Pacific Islands News Association (PINA).

"This is to commemorate World Media Freedom Day and also to celebrate the registration of the Fijian Media Association," acting manager PINA Makereta Komai said.

"Since the global theme for this year is "Media Freedom for a Better Future : Shaping the Post 2015 Development Agenda" we thought it was a good idea to consider the health of those working in the industry and organise a morning walk and health check.

"The media works in such a high stress level industry and most of us don't look after our health so instead of organising something serious, we thought we would get media personnel and their families together for a fun day."

Last night, members of the media ended the day with dinner and a gathering at Traps Bar.

"We would like to thank the bosses of every media organisation that helped fund this get together.

"And we want to let it be known that the Fijian Media Association is not just for journalists but everyone involved in the media — all media workers."
