ARTEFACTS such as passports used by Indians to travel from India to Fiji during the colonial days will be on show for public viewing during the Eid Mela in Lautoka next week.

Organising committee chairman Mohammed Salim said they would also have a skincare specialist from India for the event.

"This has been made possible through the help of Fiji National University and the skincare specialist will display skincare techniques to members of the public," he said.

"It has been confirmed that the chief guest will be the Minister for Women Dr Jiko Luveni."

He also said they would honour retired community workers during the Eid Mela.

"We will be giving them medals for the wonderful work that they did for the community.

"We will also be having essay and mehndi designing competitions."

According to Mr Salim, they had secured sponsorships from Remington, Amalgamated Ltd, Superb Advertising and Khan Buses.

"There will be free food and drinks on the day.

"We will be serving palau and sewai. A bouncy castle will be set up for children."

The Eid Mela will be held on August 9 at the Girmit Centre.
