Cash Call To Keep Walls Clear

This article featured in a local Canterbury free newspaper, October 1997.

More money is needed to ensure Canterbury remains a graffiti-free city.

Following a clean-up campaign which began in May nearly all the scrawl on the walls has disappeared.

But Peter Bryce chairman of Pride in Canterbury, the group which initiated the campaign, has appealed to city companies for funds to continue the project to keep the walls clear.

He said: "It costs 10,000GBP to keep the city centre free of graffiti.

"Although the city coucil give half the money and an appeal to companies made earlier this year raised 2,000GBP there is still a balance of 3,000GBP that needs to be found."
