FRODSHAM skate park has been spruced up by the council’s Graffiti Removal Team.

Operatives of Vale Royal Borough Council’s Graffiti Removal Team went to Frodsham skate park to tackle graffiti head on.

The project, funded by the council, Vale Royal Community Safety Partnership and Weaver Vale Housing Trust, was introduced in response to graffiti problems in the borough.

The graffiti removal unit set about removing the graffiti as Cllrs Lynn Riley and Andrew Dawson watched.

Frodsham and Borough Cllr Lynn Riley, lead councillor for environmental management, was at the skate park to see the removal in action.

She said: “Although it’s well recognised that graffiti is a national, widespread problem, it also has a serious impact on the local environment.

“We are committed to offering new and exciting spaces to support local communities and provide fun recreational areas for youngsters.

“The removal unit aims to improve local environmental quality and reduce associated anti-social behaviour. “Throughout the scheme we have been, and will continue to be looking to identify the perpetrators of graffiti through the use of wireless CCTV.”
