Nongprue residents got together to honor HM the Queen for her Aug. 12 birthday by cleaning out a crucial flood-control canal.

Mayor Mai Chaiyanit presided over the Aug. 4 event attended by more than 100 sub-district council members, residents and inmates of the Pattaya Remand Prison.

The group began clearing out the canal near Nongprue Community 1. They helped each other collect plastic bags and other rubbish, remove twigs and plants and also used their spades and shovels to get rid of the mud.
