Held this year on Sunday, 27 October, Graffiti Removal Day is an annual, State-wide event based in NSW which aims to bring local communities together to volunteer their time and help remove and prevent graffiti. The event places a great emphasis on teamwork and encourages participants to have fun and enjoy themselves while cleaning up their community.
This year's theme is "love where we live", which encourages community members to take pride in their towns and to actively participate in keeping them graffiti-free.
Graffiti Removal Day is a fun community event in NSW
We all know how much graffiti can impact the appearance of a town, and Graffiti Removal Day is a chance to get involved in getting rid of it for good. It's an excuse to get together with your friends, or make new ones, and spend a couple of hours outdoors, making your town look beautiful again.
Graffiti Removal Day hosts clean-up sites all over the State, so there is sure to be one near where you live. All training and supplies are provided on the day and it's free to participate (just be aware that participants must be aged 12 years or older). Volunteers can register by visiting the website www.graffitiremovalday.org.au or by completing a form at your chosen site on the day.
Participants have a great day and love cleaning up their local area
