Lat­est graf­fiti has un­done great work car­ried out by vol­un­teers

Mid Louth Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS | THE DIARY -

LAST year, on quite a few week­end morn­ings, I came across a small crew of vol­un­teers, all primed with clean­ing ma­te­ri­als, and in­tend on tidy­ing the towns.

They be­gan the process of clean­ing graf­fiti from walls and build­ings all over town.

I met them on Fair Street and they could have been dead- ringers for the Ghost­busters - true pro­fes­sion­als.

But they scrubbed and cleaned all over the place and did a won­der­ful job.

How­ever, in re­cent times, I have no­ticed that much of their in­dus­try has been tar­nished.

The High­lanes steps have been tar­geted again by graf­fiti, in par­tic­u­lar.

There are many ways to tackle is­sues like this but surely the prime one is CCTV and catch­ing those who carry out these acts.

They shouldn’t be fined, or de­tained or what­ever.

Sim­ply, place a mop and scrub­bing brush in one hand and a bucket in the other and a nice clean­ing job will re­sult af­ter a lot of ef­fort.
