On Saturday along with a number of local people, council officers and fellow ward councillors Donald Hay and Fraser Macpherson I took part in a graffiti paint-over initiative. This group took some practical action and dealt with the scourge of graffiti by painting over it in a number of locations in the West End.
This initiative started last year and while it is not a total solution to the problems of graffiti it does demonstrate that local people will not just allow graffiti to happen and do nothing about it. We all have a role to play in this, there should be zero tolerance of graffiti. Well done to those who arranged and took part in Saturday's event.
