Kampong Sungai Teraban Village Consultative Council (MPK) members and residents conducted a cleaning campaign recently.

It began at the Kampong Sungai Teraban Community Hall.

Belait District Officer Ramlee bin Haji Jamudin was welcomed to the venue by Acting Village Head of Kampong Sungai Teraban Zaini bin Haji Kaderi.

The event, which saw the participation of over 80 villagers, aimed to spruce up the surrounding area of the village and raise awareness on the importance of cleanliness.

“We plan to conduct similar activities and establish a closer relationship among the residents,” Zaini said.

The Belait District Officer said, “I believe that the event should be conducted continuously to help instil the mindset of keeping the environment clean.”

He also highlighted on the village’s potential in its ‘One Village One Product’ (1K1P) as well as its strategic location for development.

The campaigns’ activities included the planting of saplings led by the guest of honour, the collecting of trash in the surrounding area as well as the cutting of overgrown grass.
