Staff and families members of the Outrigger on the Lagoon ? Fiji vuvale (family) have hailed their annual staff carnival held at the resorts parklands on Saturday 03 Aug, 2013 as ?too good!?

Organised by the resorts Human Resources Department, the carnival was an opportunity for the different departments and their families to enjoy a day filled with activities and fun for the children.

Outrigger Fiji General Manager Peter Hopgood said, ?The main reason for the event on Saturday was to thank our staff and their families for the hard work and support that they have given to the resort in the first 6 months of the year. Outrigger on the Lagoon . Fiji is an extremely busy resort and we are blessed with an exceptional team that do a wonderful job in looking after our guests?.

?This year we organized a special treat for our vuvale with the K-9 show by the Fiji Police Force Dog Unit and a meet and great with our champion Outrigger on the Lagoon ? Fiji Nadroga Stallions?, Mr. Hopgood stated.

?The K-9 show was a hit with our kids and to see the smiles on their faces and to hear our vuvale enjoying themselves was most humbling!? he continued.

?The staff at the resort are very proud to be a part of the Outrigger vuvale. They enjoy coming to work and engaging with our guests. We are a pro-active employer that always looks after the health, happiness and welfare of our staff. The carnival was a small way in which we can acknowledge the hard work of our staff?, Mr. Hopgood stated.

The annual carnival is in its third year running and included vouchers for the families to redeem free rides, food and drinks, face painting, clowns, live band as well as a garage & bake sale.
