The order was handed down by Interior Ministry Permanent Secretary Kritsada Boonrach, who held a video conference with provincial governors nationwide on Monday (July 17), Gov Norraphat said.

This year is the first that HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn’s birthday will be publicly celebrated on July 28 following its declaration as a public holiday in April. (See story here.)

“Activities are to be held from July 24-31, and will be in the interest of the public with the emphasis on promoting unity. At present, 1,142 charitable activities have been organised nationwide,” Gov Norraphat said.

“During this period across the nation we will host activities that exhibit our royal history and royal events,” he added.

A merit-making ceremony and multifaith ceremonies will held at Phuket Provincial Hall, and at other appropriate locations in Phuket during the week, Gov Norraphat said.

People will be invited to Provincial Hall and other appropriate locations in Phuket to sign books of blessings for His Majesty, he added.

"Keep Phuket clean by our hands and our hearts” a great pity they can't  use their hands, and hearts, every day, surely by dumping their rubbish, anywhere they like, shows disrespect, in which case the disrespect outways the respect.
