All keen to clean up
GRAFFITI Day in Coffs Harbour has been postponed to November 2, due to the overwhelming response to last Saturday's article on the event, originally scheduled for tomorrow.
Coffs Harbour co-ordinator Cr Mark Sultana said he wanted to make sure there were enough materials available for everyone and the day was well organised, so he was following the advice of the state organisers and pushing the local event back one week to Sunday, November 2.
Volunteers will be given instructions and all materials needed, including gloves, overalls, eye protection, graffiti removal liquid, paint and applicators, are being supplied by the NSW Government and the sponsors of the event, including Dulux Paints.
Coffs Harbour Rotary and Tourism Coffs Coast are also supporting the day.
Cr Sultana said so far the response to the date change from all the people who had contacted him had been 100% positive.
"There is a lot of paperwork and organising involved and I am happy to do that, but I want to make sure the day is co-ordinated efficiently and runs smoothly," Cr Sultana said.
"If anyone is interested in helping on this day, please get in contact with me as soon as possible."
People can also nominate areas for clean-up crews to work on.
