New Muban in Surin

Published in the Royal Gazette last week was the creation of a new administrative village in Surin province. Ban Na Muan (บ้านนานวล), Village 7 of Kho Kho subdistrict, Mueang Surin district, is split and the new village 12 named Ban Rang Phueng (บ้านรังผึ้ง) is created. [Gazette] The new village became effective on March 9, the same date as when the act was signed by the province governor of Surin.

From the coordinates given in the boundary definition, the new village is located south of village 7, which is along highway 226 connection Surin town with Nakhon Ratchasima. I have geotagged the post with the settlement which seems to be at the center of the new village. The village name Ban Rang Phueng means "Bee hive village", but sadly I have no explanation for why this name was chosen, or if it simply already was the name of the above mentioned settlement.
