CRT Joins The Battle Against Vandalism

With the ‘Wednesfield in Bloom’ date  rapidly approaching and the ‘Britain in Bloom’  Inspectors arriving in the Village on the 7th of July. I was delighted to have the Canal and River Trust inform me that their operatives were out and about at Bentley Bridge removing the graffiti that had been daubed on the bridge structure, at this location on the Wyrley & Essington canal.

It is great to know that CRT who are very much lacking in resources has nevertheless made available their team to help the Village gain a Gold Award. Thanks CRT – your efforts are very much appreciated.

Wednesfield has suffered a wave of increased graffiti and the scrawl is ugly and is impacting heavily on the way the Village and surrounding districts look.

The key obviously is to stop the tagging of public and private property with these ugly scrawling tags. If there are any residents who know who are scrawling these images on buildings and other street furniture, will you please tell me so that I can inform the Police.
