Ottery’s graffiti artists are being invited to come and decorate a new ‘wall’ at the town’s skatepark.
The boards, 4.8 metres wide and 1.2 metres high (16 feet by 4 feet) have been erected ready for use.
Roger Chambers, one of the trustees of Ottery Station which runs the skatepark, said: “It all started with some posts in Ottery Matters on Facebook where people were complaining about graffiti, and it turned the whole thread into one of interest not criticism.
“We took the idea to the other trustees and they said, ‘what a great idea, let’s get on with it’.
Mr Chambers is also considering organising a graffiti workshop if enough people are interested; contact him on email@example.com or 07789 743057.
