Striking murals replace graffiti

Eye-catching murals painted by local artists have transformed an area targeted by graffiti vandals.

The Safer Rother Partnership, which works with to prevent and reduce criminal activity and anti-social behaviour, commissioned Wave Arts to carry out the work.

The wall beside the footpath from Sutton Place and Ashdown Place, Bexhill, has been vandalised on a number of occasions over the past few years, with each clean-up operation costing the taxpayer.

Cllr Jimmy Stanger, Rother District Council’s representative on the Safer Rother Partnership, said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to take such positive action over graffiti that has been a blight on the community and provoked a fear of crime in the area.

“These striking murals are the latest project designed to address the issue of graffiti vandalism, with the Partnership having already commissioned Coastal Current to cover prominent and heavily graffitied BT boxes with artwork.”
