Ferndown Sports FC’s refurbished clubhouse and changing room facility at King George V Playing fields was vandalised recently when graffiti including foul words were daubed over the exterior walls.
The family-run company also seized the opportunity to trial one of its latest innovative graffiti protection solutions. Instead of simply removing the graffiti, the clubhouse was also painted in an effective industrial anti-graffiti coating, the same as that used for clients such as London Underground subways and tube stations. The graffiti protection is chip and weather resistant with a life of up to 25 or 30 years and means that any future graffiti attacks can be easily wiped clean in a matter of moments without the need to call in the professionals. Similarly the coating protects against fly-posters, marker pen graffiti and is also effective against chewing gum.
Vanessa Ricketts, Town Clerk for Ferndown Town Council, which administers the King George V Playing Fields charity, is passionate about sport. She commented: “It was so disheartening to see this awful attack after so much hard work, time and money had gone into the recent refurbishment of the clubhouse. I’m just so thankful to Community Clean for their kind generosity to rectify it so quickly and future proofing it from any further attacks.”
