Issue No. 36/2020 – Friday, 18 September 2020 (Kitiona Tausi)
National sports competition on the capital has been shifted to take place at the end of the southern end of the runway because the Tuvalu Sports Ground is under repair. It has been for two weeks now since repair work started at the playground and it is envisaged that the ground would be ready before the 42nd Anniversary of Independence celebrations.
The workers said that they are filling with sand the muddy part of the field and then allow the grass to grow again.
