12 October 2015 Let’s Zap the Tags

Rotary Coffs Harbour and Dulux Paints have joined forces - with support from Coffs Harbour City Council – to help clean up Coffs Harbour for ‘Graffiti Removal Day’ on Sunday, October 18, 2015.

 

“Let’s show just how much we love our city by getting together to help beautify Coffs Harbour next Sunday,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.

 

Graffiti costs local businesses, households, the NSW Government and Council millions of dollars each year.

 

Graffiti Removal Day aims to draw attention to the widespread problem of graffiti vandalism and to encourage people to get involved in its removal and prevention.

 

“Ugly graffiti tags really spoil the look of the area so we’ve chosen a number of sites locally where we can specifically target this type of graffiti and clean it all up,” said Councillor Mark Sultana, who is Chair of the community Graffiti Management Working Group. “We’re hoping lots of community members will help us out by volunteering on the day.”

 

Several sites have been identified by the Working Group in the CBD, Park Beach, Sawtell and Sandy Beach.

 

Anyone who wants to help is asked to meet at Brelsford Park at 8am on Sunday for induction, instructions and allocation of sites. Participants should bring along a hat, sunscreen and water. Volunteers will be supplied with cleaning materials, paint, safety equipment and training on how to safely remove graffiti.

 

People can volunteer by completing the form available on the Graffiti Removal Day website or by registering on the Day at Brelsford Park.
