For generations, the sprawling Enamanu Cemetery has been the final resting place of many Nadi residents.
Located outside the Nadi Town Council boundaries the grave yard has largely been neglected and cleaning it up often are out-of-pocket exercises.
The Nadi chapter of the Marist Old Boys (MOB) hopes to change this irregularity and yesterday initiated a communal clean up day with the support of business houses.
Families, friends and affiliates volunteered their time and tools to tidy up Enamanu cemetery and provide a more picturesque resting place for their loved ones.
“This has provided a great opportunity for people to meet other MOB members and for the community to get together,’’ said Ken Kamali, a Nadi MOB member.
“This is an initial programme, our first project for the year and we hope to make it a regular event.”
The Nadi Chamber of Commerce and Industry has also applauded this effort. A NCCI board member, John Grey, said such initiatives were part of community development and that it was pleasing to note that volunteers were not limited to particular organisations but were from all segments of the public.
The land that Enamanu is located on was donated for public use in the 1900s by a Charles Kennedy, whom the nearby Kennedy Avenue was named after.
