THE absence of major Fiji Day celebrations in the West did not stop residents of a small Lautoka community from marking Independence Day today.

Residents of Lomolomo on the outskirts of the sugar city came out to mark the country’s 48th birthday in their own small way.

Advisory councillor Shakuntla Permal said they tried to organise a celebration during each Fiji Day.

She said this was a time to foster unity in the community.
