Delyn MP David Hanson will this Saturday attend the launch of a new graffiti board initiative in Holywell.
The concept has been developed by local Community Beat Manager, Catherine McHarrie, from North Wales Police and the local Neighbourhood Watch organisation.
The graffiti boards will go up in 3 “hotspot” areas which have suffered some of the most damage from graffiti. It is hoped that graffiti will now be applied on the boards and stay off the walls. If the initiative is successful then there will be competitions held throughout the year.
David Hanson said:
“Unauthorised graffiti is criminal damage and can blight our communities and I welcome this new an innovative scheme to help deal with the issue.
“These boards will give people an opportunity to express themselves through art, without defacing our town centres.
“I welcome the partnership between North Wales Police and Neighbourhood Watch and I am looking forward to seeing the boards for myself on Saturday.
