TRAVEL INDUSTRY STAFF SUVA – August, 1982.
Ratu Isoa Gavidi, ?, Mahendra Patel, Robin Mercer, Lorna Christoffersen, Mrs. Roni Croome, Ratu Epeli Kanaimawi, John Birch, ?, George Faktaufon.


Ratu Isoa Gavidi was a long term Career Civil Servant, mostly in Foreign Affairs; once Fiji’s Ambassador to Australia and most recently Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs. Current President of the Fiji Golf Club.
This shot was taken on the upper balcony of the old Town Hall situated right across the road from the FVB offices at the time (clear line of sight to Luck Eddies).
Timeline would be late August 1982 following Lorna (Christofferson) Eden being crowned Miss Hibiscus a week or so earlier. Presumably the FVB Board members giving her a cocktail party send-off (judging by the glass firmly in the grasp of the gentleman second from right) as Fiji’s tourism ambassador.
Lorna is currently an MP in Fiji and serving as the Assistant Minister for Local Government & Environment.
Photo from Robin Mercer Collection with additional inputs from Tony Snowsill and other Koro Members.
