On Sunday 18th November last year more than 320 tress were planted and 20 square metres of graffiti removed at two hotspot locations in Barden Ridge. Volunteers from Illawong Baseball and Bangor AFL Clubs, local residents and staff from Tradies came together to transform these spaces into areas that are clean, tidy and ready for eveybody to use and enjoy.

The working bee gave council staff an opportunity to let volunteers know what they should do if they see graffiti in the community, and how they can protect their property and community facilities from being graffitied in the future.

The working bee, sponsored by Tradies, is an initiative of the council’s strategy to keep the Shire’s local parks, playing fields and community facilities attractive and graffiti free.

If you see graffiti on council property, don’t ignore it, report it. Council has developed a new free mobile phone app “The Shire – Report It”, avaliable from iOS App Store and Android Play. Alternatively, you can report it on the homepage of the council’s website or by calling 9710 0333. For graffiti on non-council property, phone the NSW Graffiti Hotline on 1800 707 125.
