Graffiti is Vandalism!

Wychert Wall 01_vandalism

The parish council would like to highlight the fact that our community is suffering a spate of graffiti spraying around Haddenham, at Fern Lane, the footpath known as Pond Close and on the railway bridge.

The spray painting is on the wychert walls, so is damaging to the surface and expensive to remove. This is our money — yours and mine.

It is particularly galling that, as soon as the graffiti is removed, the culprit repeats his or her anti-social act. And Banksy this person isn't!

The parish council is therefore making an appeal to parents and the community to be vigilant, so that these acts of vandalism can be nipped in the bud.

If you have relevant information, please get in touch with the parish council office (Tel: 292411 Email: haddenhampc@btconnect.com), or if you witness an act of defacement taking place, please call the police on 101.
