Divisions hold first service

ABOUT 50 corrections officers from the Central and Eastern divisions gathered for their first parade at the Raiwaqa Parish on Friday night.

Fiji Corrections Service spokeswoman Kuini Waqasavou said this was the first time for them to have the service away from Korovou.

She said it was a time for officers to meet their work colleagues and better understand their roles as corrections officers.

"We had the national church parade two weeks ago and this week they had their respective divisional church parade," Mrs Waqasavou said.

On Saturday, these officers and their families took part in a major clean-up campaign in Suva.

Mrs Waqasavou said heavy rain did not dampen the spirits of officers as they took to the streets of Suva.

About 100 participants were led by the Commissioner of Corrections, Lt-Col Ifereimi Vasu.
