The Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North attracted a lot of people on Tuesday night at Subrail Park, Labasa.

It was the iTaukei night and also the first public judging for the Queen contestants.

They were dressed in different traditional attire to represent the different communities they represent.

Chief guest for the night was Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu who spoke on the festival theme, Our Environment, Our Future.

“We should always look after our environment. Already the effects of climate change have been visible here in the North.” Mr Bolalevu said.

“The relocation of Vunidogoloa at a cost of more than $1 million and rehabilitation is in progress. The evidence of man-made activities is visible in the air and along roadsides.

“People in Labasa should not misuse water anymore during the dry spell that is affecting the Northern Division. Water is scarce now in the North, we are drinking from the last rainfall on April, we have not had rainfall since April.

“We have exposed our water beds through bush fires to the sun and they will soon dry up. So, my message to everyone is to refrain from causing such disasters and we should start using water appropriately” he said.
