Local government workers, volunteers and students pitched in to clean up a wooded area around the Banglamung Home for Boys envisioned as a future activity zone.
Director Jarinya Wantawong welcomed the civil servants from Banglamung Sub-district, civic groups and Banglamung Inter-Tech College to 200-rai parcel of waterfront land Jan. 23.
While the property is a beachfront, it is covered with pine and other trees that have grown wildly. The boys’ home lacks the staff to maintain it, so grass has grown high, weeds run rampant and leaves and branches blanket the area.
Jarinya reached out to local groups to cooperatively prune trees, cut weeds and grass, collect branches and leaves and generally clean the property, using a tractor to plow all the collected material.
When finished, it would be a clean, shady and clear piece of land that the Banglamung Home for Boys could use for future activities, she said.
