Graffiti clean-up day in Newtown

October 9, 2013

My sister, son and I went along for an hour on Saturday to help out with graffiti removal in Newtown. Mayor Celia Wade-Brown was there too, along with a team of council staff. We were given water, scrubbing brushes and scrapers and were asked to help remove the illegally pasted posters on one of the end walls at the mall.

This is just one of the many initiatives the Council has been trying over recent weeks to reduce graffiti in the Southern Ward, along with painting out graffiti on Council property and painting colourful murals on graffiti-prone walls. I believe that it is starting  to make a positive difference,  and am happy that there are plans to start some of this proactive response in the eastern suburbs as well.
