Here's what to do if you see graffiti in Hart or Rushmoor

Published at 3:04pm 18th April 2018. (Updated at 7:16am 19th April 2018)

A local community group is cracking down on graffiti in the Rushmoor and Hart areas during Graffiti Focus Week.

The Safer North Hampshire community safety team is trying to remove as much of it as possible, while also trying to help reduce the risk of further vandalism.

We are being asked to report any graffiti to the team by emailing them or by phoning them on 01252 774476.

Alternatively you can report it at Fix My Street.

There is also an appeal to find the person/people responsible for the same 'tags' (pictured above and below) that have been seen mostly in Farnborough recently and always together.

Anyone with any information is asked to report it to the police's non-emergency 101 phone number or to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. 

Caroline Ryan, Community Safety Manager of the Safer North Hampshire Partnership, said: "Our neighbourhoods will be vastly improved if we can remove graffiti, so I would ask everyone to report any graffiti to us, so we can remove it. If we all work together, we can really improve our local area.

"The people who graffiti our environment probably either pay council tax themselves, or live with someone who does, and their selfish actions are contributing to the council tax bill as funds then have to be used to remove it."

The following advice has been issued to help locals reduce the risk of graffiti to their property:

  • Plant climbing shrubs on exposed brick walls
  • Plant hedges in front of wooden fences
  •  Install security lighting
  • Report any graffiti by calling 101
