A LOCAL councillor has teamed up with a football club to turn negative graffiti into a positive for the area.
Last week, someone spray-painted a container at AFC Pogmoor in a ‘modern style’ - and Coun Clive Pickering is asking the person responsible to return to the site, but not to completely scrub off the vandalism.
Instead, they want the graffiti re-spraying in the colours of AFC Pogmoor to provide a striking image for those passing by.
Coun Pickering added: “There’s a container up at Pogmoor Recreation Ground and someone has put some modern graffiti on there.
“It is quite well done and so we want to promote the club by asking the person responsible to redo it in the club’s colours.
“We’re wanting to turn a negative into a positive.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
