The event was also held to raise awareness of the cleanliness and orderliness in Phuket, Governor Norraphat posted online today (July 20).

The event, joined by scores of people, was also attended by Muang Phuket District Chief, Karon Mayor, Karon Police, heads of government sectors, staff from local administration organisations as well as local residents.

As part of the event, teams of attendees collected rubbish and cut grass along the area in front of Kata Beach.

The cleanup today follows a call yesterday for people to register to take part in the formal events to be held next Saturday as volunteers.

Ah, the 'Clean-Governor' in action again with his prime task on Phuket. Volunteering under repression ( know your place), must register, must dress appropriate, must in yellow.  And so let you, as government, feel the thai population who they have to obey inThailand. Even for volunteer cleaning. No budget for government daily cleaners on 'beautiful' Phuket?

A dress code for a volunteer beach cleanup?  Thailand, get over yourself. You just ain't all that.

They need a reason to clean their country when they just trash it the other 364 days of the year...Again comes down to personal responsibility which is simply non existent.
