Graffiti Removal Day is coming up on Sunday, October 26 and Campbelltown City Council is calling on volunteers to roll up to roll out graffiti!
An initiative of the NSW Government, and supported by Rotary Down Under, Graffiti Removal Day is an annual campaign aimed at bringing local residents, businesses and community organisations together in the fight against graffiti.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr Paul Lake, encouraged everyone to show their support to help remove and prevent graffiti in Campbelltown.
“Graffiti Removal Day is one of many steps Campbelltown City Council is taking to help wipe out graffiti in our community, and we’re looking for enthusiastic residents and groups to get involved and join us at one of the nominated sites on the day,” Cr Lake said.
“By participating in the event and reporting graffiti as soon as possible, we can all help to reduce these acts of vandalism and improve the appearance of our city.”
Graffiti Removal Day activities will be held from 9am to midday across three Council-nominated sites – the Dumaresq Street carpark in Campbelltown (at the rear of the heritage buildings), the laneway adjacent to the carpark opposite Minto Railway Station in Somerset Avenue, and the Stanley Road laneway in Ingleburn.
Volunteers will be provided with all necessary equipment, materials and training, and are encouraged to bring along a hat, sunscreen and drinking water.
