This year, Graffiti Removal Day will be held on Sunday October 18 and everyone is encouraged to get involved by either promoting the day, volunteering or nominating a site.

"The only tag I want to see as we launch this year's Graffiti Removal Day is the hashtag #rolluptorollout and we urge people to spread the word on social media and turn out on 18 October," Mr Grant said.

Graham has already shown dedication to the movement, after cleaning up the vandalised Scout Hall in West Pymble with two other members of his crew.
