Join the fight and become a Graffiti Warrior to make a real difference to the appearance of Moree.
Let’s Love Where We Live by taking part in Graffiti Removal Day on Sunday, October 21.
Moree Plains Shire Council will run a campaign to highlight the problem of graffiti vandalism and encourage people to get involved in the removal and prevention of graffiti.
Event organiser Dane Graham said Graffiti Removal Day provided an opportunity for individuals, community groups, sporting clubs, businesses and other organisations to lend a helping hand.
Participants are urged to meet at the Moree Tourist Information Centre at 8.45am for 9am start.
Anyone over the age of 12 with the ability to clean off graffiti can volunteer in the day.
Afterward, volunteers will enjoy a barbecue lunch.
“All the volunteers will be provided with training, graffiti removal equipment and protective gear, and afterward, we get together to admire our work,” he said.
Graffiti is a serious problem across New South Wales costing communities millions of dollars each year.
“Governments, businesses and volunteer organisations are doing their bit, however we need your help in the fight against graffiti.”
People can register or suggest a clean-up site by completing a form at www.graffitiremovalday.org.au or contacting Council on 6757 3245.
Moree Plains Shire Council will join forces with the NSW Government, Rotary Down Under, Scouts Australia NSW, Girl Guides NSW and ACT and the Australian Air Force Cadets and sponsors – Dulux, Selleys and Graffiti Removal Australia for the campaign.
