Banglamung District Chief Wikit Manarojkit led a meeting with village headmen and officials at the Bang Lamung District Office community hall. The focus was on reinforcing policies and guidelines to prevent gambling dens in the Banglamung area.

Chon Buri Province Governor Thawatchai Srithong stressed the importance of cracking down on illegal gambling activities. Local leaders, including kamnans and village headmen, have been urged to report any information related to gambling dens immediately. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action.

During the meeting, a ceremony took place where the Banglamung emblem was decorated, and important documents were distributed to the village headmen and their assistants. Seven individuals were appointed, receiving support funds from the Rural Child Development Fund, which is under the Royal Patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.

The fund aims to support 40 children who are poor, needy, disadvantaged, disabled, or orphans. Each child will receive 1,500 baht (US$40), totalling 60,000 baht (US$1,630).
