Entertainment for a good cause

After their rounds of entertainment to herald the New Year, the Delainavesi-based Washington Tin Band members last week worked on raising funds for the new school year. BTL was told that money collected during their members performances was given to parents to help in their back to school shopping. So all the entertainment was worth the while. The initiative by these children was surely for a good cause.

Passengers still use cash

E-Ticketing was introduced last October and is now compulsory. However, despite numerous warnings by LTA on breaches and possible fines some passengers and drivers have taken no notice.  Cash given and collected is placed in a carton beside the drivers seat. BTL witnessed an incident of passengers giving cash to the driver because they didn’t have their e-Ticketing card. Will bus operators get this money or will it end up in the driver’s pocket? Who is policing this? Recently LTA officers boarded buses and fined drivers and passengers. Be Careful.

Ask for the receipt

A Fiji Airways flight attendant heard of recruiting agents in Sigatoka about travelling to America to work. She was told that she would not need a visa. She was told to pay $40 which she did and she asked for the receipt. The reply was – “You are the first person to ask for the receipt.” She withdrew and took back her passport and she is advising members of the public not to listen the lies they’re spreading.

Be on the alert for this group and call Police when they’re around your area. Remember you will need a visitor’s visa to visit America and not a working visa.
