Do you know of any graffitied walls in the area that could do with a lick of paint?
Good Gym are a running and fitness project which – as well as the running – carry out community improvement projects in Brighton and Hove, and we have been fortunate in attracting them for two graffiti cleanup projects in Hanover over the summer – and they are up for some more!
We are looking for graffiti cleanup (or other cleanup) projects which would take a group of runners around 30- 40 mins to complete. The council is able to help by providing paint, and we just need locations in Hanover & Elm Grove which need some attention and which have the owners consent where required for the work to be done.
If you know of any spaces, or own a wall yourself which you find difficult to manage please let us know in the comments box below.
