Vandalised … graffiti wall gets its first angry slogan

A BLANK wall built for teenage graffiti artists has been vandalised by an angry resident writing – ”I paid my tax and all I got was this lousy wall”.

The £3,000 6ft high by 30ft long wall was installed so youths could practice their graffiti artwork without using local property.

But ahead of its opening on October 31 the fed-up resident sneaked behind a security fence and daubed a protest about the use of taxpayer’s money.

The wall, in Wadebridge, Cornwall, was funded by Wadebridge Town Council, Wadebridge Town Forum and North Cornwall District Council.

It was built in the town’s Jubilee Park and was the brainchild of Sergeant Robin Moorcroft who has vowed to investigate the graffiti.


He said it is “ironic” because most of the cost was subsidised by local businesses who supplied free materials and labour.

“The ironic thing is that the wall has been built thanks to the generosity of local people giving time and resources for free,” he said.

“But it is now going to cost the taxpayer, as we will have to crime it, investigate it and paint over it.

“We have been working hard to try to provide something positive for the community and this coward and their juvenile delinquent act has set a terrible example to the youth of the town.

“All residents were given the opportunity to raise objections during the planning process. This person could have come and spoken to us instead of committing this petty act.

“To paint graffiti on the wall and remain anonymous shows this person has no courage, I would have more respect if he or she came forward and admitted responsibility.”

But one resident added: “I suppose you could say the writing is on the wall. People around here think the money could be better spent on more worthy projects.

“It seems like an awful waste of time and money – especially during a credit crunch.”
