Our tauvu friends from Lomaiviti

from w
Many of the Fijians in Melbourne have come from Lomaiviti, the islands in the middle of Fiji and they meet together every three months for church worship, a meeting and a fine meal together. Yesterday Peceli and I joined them at Coburg Uniting Church (which is rented to a Fiji church group linked with Wesleyan) and it was lovely to catch up with many friends. It's a very old church, in fact, it's where my father lived near as a child and he went to the school next door, (okay - not Pentridge Gaol, though my grandfather worked there!) so I took some photos and posted them on Geelong Visual Diary. Here are some pictures though of some of the people at afternoon tea time. There is always plenty of joking between Labasa Fijians and people from the islands of Gau, Nairai, Koro, Levuka and other islands in between Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.
