The 2018 Vodafone Sugar Festival was opened on Saturday night with a call for a clean environment to be fore­most on people’s minds.

The call came from Nilesh Singh, Voda­fone’s head of recharge and distribution at Churchill Park ground two in Lautoka.

Mr Singh said that the message should be highly taken into consideration because it was a concern for everyone.

“It is important to realise that Fiji needs a clean environment and a healthy nation which will eventually lead to a brighter fu­ture,” he said.

“The festival has become a major platform for bringing people together from different cultural backgrounds.”

Mr Singh said the contestants would get an unprecedented level of exposure to pre­pare them for further life challenges.

Sugar Festival Association president, Pusp Raj, said at the opening that people would get the opportunity to have unlim­ited fun at the grounds for the entire week.

Nine Queen contestants are part of this year’s festival.

They are:

Miss Daniel Signs Salote Taleaua;

Miss Bargain Box Faith Jedidah;

Miss Transtec Fiji Ltd Nilshika Karishma

Miss Lazer Electrical Ltd Prinal Ram;

Miss Formscaff Mirian Raju;

Miss Harmony Security Talilagi Delaifoa;

Miss Lautoka Market Vendors Associa­tion Esini Vukivuki;

Miss Wilderness Amusement and Rides Doreen Divya; and

Miss Lautoka City Council Payal Prasad
