Club volunteers wipe out graffiti

THE scribble will be cleaned up at graffiti-prone locations on Sunday.

Rotarians have joined forces with the state government for Graffiti Removal Day, when places will be cleaned up without charge.

Dural Rotary Club president Paul Wolf said many Rotarians were disgusted parts of the area were being defaced with graffiti.

"We're a community organisation and we take pride in our community," Mr Wolf said.

"Part of cleaning this up is about restoring our community to how it should be and look."

Three sites have been identified by the club for graffiti removal. They are West Pennant Hills Koala Park, a restaurant at Pennant Hills and the fence of the Old Epping Bowling Club on Blaxland Road.

He called for the community to nominate other clean-up sites and to volunteer their time to remove and help prevent graffiti this Sunday.

Graffiti Removal Day highlights the problem of graffiti and encourages the community to take action to help remove it.

Last month a new anti-graffiti law was passed in Parliament.

Tougher measures were passed but a condition that would have allowed the courts to confiscate an offender's licence was dropped.
