THE Kampong Belimbing Consultative Council (MPK Belimbing) launched a fishing festival and family day campaign as part of its yearly activities at Tasik Sarubing Recreational Park on the first day of 2015.
The four-day festival, ending on January 4, will allow village residents the opportunity to showcase and sell their products such as agriculture produce and fruits to members of the public.
YB Awang Haji Gapor @ Haji Md Daud bin Karim, Village Head of Kg Belimbing and Acting Penghulu of Mukim Kota Batu, addressed guests and committee members shortly after the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah and Doa Selamat which were read by Awang Muhammad bin Ali, a member of the Youth and Sports Bureau under the MPK Belimbing.
The council also hoped that the sale can be seen as a means of generating income for the village, mainly though the One Village One Product concept, and to strengthen further ties among all groups in the village.
MPK Belimbing also gained support of the Brunei-Muara District Office through the presence of its Acting Brunei-Muara District Officer, Mohammad Sunadi bin Haji Buntar as the guest of honour.
The guest of honour launched the campaign and subsequently visited the booths and launched the ATV off road event.
The campaign continues today with a freshwater fishing festival at 8am and a mass jogging event mainly for Kg Belimbing’s residents.
