SRRA took delivery today of special graffiti wipes, which are effective in clearing ‘tags’ from parking meters etc. These will be held initially by Edward White and Jo Whitehead for SRRA, and by Mark Dubois for DRRA residents associations respectively, but we are still asking that everyone responsible who wants to ‘Tag’-bash their specific vicinity should join in.
The wipes are great at cutting through almost all paints on smooth surfaces.
Remember too that council officer firstname.lastname@example.org Tel. 07795 336502 can be called on to tackle bigger graffiti jobs as and when they appear.
Also, SRRA has learned that when a street telephone box has been vandalised or damaged the correct persons to call are OpenReach on 0800 023 2023. They respond quickly, especially if there appears a trip hazard or exposed wiring.
For SRRA tag busting volunteers Edward can be contacted through email@example.com.
Special thanks to Damien Marmura and Cityclean and to Cllr Littman for helping make this initiative happen.
Finally, remember that Graffiti is Criminal Damage under English Law. If you see someone doing it – call the cops. They keep a record of tags and can prosecute regular offenders.
