Baby show pulls through despite low turnout

DESPITE the low turnout at yesterday's Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North baby show, organisers managed to put smiles on the faces of about 60 babies and their mothers.

The half-day program at the Civic Centre auditorium was not only an opportunity for the babies to be medically-examined for the competition, it was also a time for the mothers to mingle with one another.

Show chairwoman Nanise Gucake said the turnout was not as expected but she was thankful the mothers and their little ones had a good time.

"We had some hiccups with our sponsors but we managed to sort out the issue way beforehand," she said.

"There are not many women present but at least, we organised a good event.

"The babies were medically-examined as part of the competition and we are happy to note that the babies were all healthy.

"The criteria of the competition included the type of feeding given to the babies, general appearance, clothing, immunisation and their personal details to name a few. There were three categories and the winners together with the runners-up all received prizes."

For Moce Falepau, seeing her grandson, 14 months, Emmanuel Raceva win the 10 to 15 months category, was a happy moment.

Mrs Falepau said she always ensured her grandson was well looked after daily.
