Sinn Féin MLA Ian Milne has called on people daubing graffiti on buildings in Bellaghy village to stop immediately as it is damaging the image of the area.
“The last fortnight has seen graffiti painted at the local GAA club, commercial premises and now for a second time on the Orange hall,” he said.
“Over the last year substantial work has been carried by various groups including the local Community Group and the Bellaghy Development Association to both enhance the image of the village and improve community relations.
“However over the past few weeks the graffiti which has appeared is both unsightly and damaging to these efforts and I am calling on those responsible for this mindless vandalism to stop immediately.
“The people of Bellaghy are proud of their village and the ongoing improvement work which is being carried out. No one wants to see any building in the village being defaced by unsightly graffiti, or community relations being damaged in any way.”
