Ro­tar­i­ans and the Com­mu­nity Join Forces in the Fight Against Graf­fiti

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

Wind­sor Ro­tar­i­ans and com­mu­nity mem­bers joined forces on Sun­day, 29 Oc­to­ber 2017 to par­tic­i­pate in this year’s Graf­fiti Re­moval Day at Youl Place Re­serve, Bligh Park. The ef­forts of those in­volved in this an­nual event are greatly ap­pre­ci­ated by the or­gan­is­ers and the lo­cal com­mu­nity in re­in­forc­ing this year’s theme “Love where we live!”

Graf­fiti van­dal­ism costs lo­cal busi­nesses, house­holds, NSW Gov­ern­ment and Hawkes­bury City Coun­cil mil­lions of dol­lars each year. This is money which could be in­vested into roads, sport­ing fa­cil­i­ties, schools and hos­pi­tals.

Graf­fiti tagged colour­bond fences sur­round­ing the re­serve were painted with match­ing coloured paint from Du­lux Aus­tralia, who has do­nated thou­sands of dol­lars in paints over the past sev­eral years. Du­lux has suc­cess­fully sup­ported the three Ro­tary Clubs in the Hawkes­bury (Rich­mond, Wind­sor, and Kur­ra­jong North Rich­mond) with their on­go­ing graf­fiti re­moval pro­grams that op­er­ate through­out the year.

Wind­sor Ro­tary Club in con­junc­tion with Hawkes­bury City Coun­cil run the Graf­fiti Re­moval Day event in Oc­to­ber each year to en­cour­age our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties to get in­volved in ac­tively re­mov­ing un­sightly graf­fiti from pub­lic places and en­cour­ag­ing the com­mu­nity to “Love where they live!”
