Plans for a mini mart

PLANS are underway for the establishment of a new mini mart at the Seaqaqa/Savusavu junction to cater for vendors in the Bua, Cakaudrove and Macuata provinces.

North Crime Prevention Carnival board chairman Satish Kumar revealed this yesterday saying the board was still trying to formalise land acquisition processes for the mini mart.

Mr Kumar said initially the carnival board had thought of constructing a mini mart in the area since it was the intersection to the three provinces and most people found it a suitable area to sell their products.

"We have other big plans for the proceeds of the carnival this year and other projects will be identified once the carnival is over," he said.

"This will enable us to work within the income generated through the carnival.

"So far, the preparations for this year's carnival are well underway and a crime prevention symposium has been earmarked to take place prior to the carnival."

Mr Kumar said this year the carnival will, for the first time, include a Ratu Vualiku category for the annual carnival involving married men above the age of 30 years.

"This year will we have 26 contestants vying for the different charity fundraising categories including the carnival queen, princess, lady and king and Ratu Vualiku category."
