Gwynedd, Anglesey, Conwy and Denbighshire Councils, have jointly purchased graffiti removal kits, together with a supply of Tidy Towns-branded high visibility jackets to protect and identify volunteers as they undertake environmental work.
Gwynedd Council’s Tidy Towns Officer, Jonathan Neale, said: “Graffiti in an area can increase the perceived fear of crime and make an area look run-down. By working with our partners and local volunteers, we aim to have a clean 'graffiti free' environment.”
The graffiti kits will provide a straightforward way for community groups to deal with the problem. The kits are non-hazardous, effective and easy to use, and ideal for community clear up projects and anyone else who wants to help deal with the problem of graffiti in public areas.
The high visibility jackets will also be available to voluntary workers and community groups to provide better protection whilst working on litter picks and other similar environmental tasks. Often overlooked, there are also children’s sizes available, and are suitable for ages seven and upwards.
This initiative has been made possible by a grant from the Welsh Government.
