The Business Forum (BHCBF) in conjunction with the Business Community Partnership (BCP) and a team of volunteers from the Bank of Scotland will take to the streets on Wednesday 26 October with buckets and scrubbing brushes to remove unsightly graffiti from the shops.
Graffiti vandalism is once again on the rise in central Brighton. North Street has been identified as the worst affected area at the moment so will be a top priority for the volunteer graffiti busters.
Last year The BHCBF and the BCP worked with a team of volunteers from EDF Energy to clean the main trading streets in the North Laine. Traders in the North Laine have worked hard over the last year to keep the graffiti levels to a minimum by consistently cleaning off graffiti immediately (or as soon as they have taken a photo of it for the police).
Traders in the Lanes also work hard to keep graffiti levels down and the Business Forum is trying to encourage more traders to follow their example by supplying free cleaning equipment and advice.
The Business Forum supplies graffiti buster boxes to traders free of charge while stocks are available. Any trader who has a problem with persistent graffiti should contact Soozie Campbell via firstname.lastname@example.org.
