An anti-social behaviour hotspot is set to get a revamp as local teenagers and a street artist team up. 

Over the Easter holidays, Wallingford teenagers will team up with street artist Mr Andrew Manson, aka The Big Orange M, and TRAIN Youth Project to redesign a graffiti-stricken area under Winterbrook Bridge.

The site, a known zone for anti-social behaviour, was identified by Wallingford Town Council.

The project, championed by TRAIN and South and Vale Community Safety Partnership, aims to foster a sense of community pride amongst the youths as they maintain their creation. Bridge owner Oxfordshire County Council and Wallingford Town Council are also backing the initiative, boosting TRAIN's continuing support for local youth from its Wallingford base.

Alex McSweeney, youth work delivery manager at TRAIN, said: "TRAIN are excited to be expanding our youth provision in Wallingford. This excellent opportunity with the South and Vale Community Safety Partnership comes at a great time, as we all aim to engage young people with this new and exciting project, giving young people the opportunity to make a mark on the local community."

Andrew “Mani” Manson “The Big Orange M”, said: "Graffiti is a wonderful and easily accessible artform. The original works of the 70s and 80s have laid the groundwork for today’s pieces that can be seen across the county and world."
