August 2015: the wall has had yet another face-lift - above.
Eynsham youngsters received an unexpected invitation - to paint graffiti on a kickwall in the Oxford Road playing field (north)- on 26 October 2006. The wall was specially chosen for graffiti use because Eynsham residents had identified vandalism as their #1 priority to tackle locally. Members of Eynsham Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) hoped that it would stop this type of criminal damage occurring elsewhere in the village. And regular repainting has been rewarded in a stream of imaginative artworks.
The "whitewash" was almost completed by 13:30 ...
... and our local graffiti artist could only wait for the paint to dry.
Thames Valley Police recently invited youngsters to design a poster to help in the fight against criminal damage in their village.
The winning design in the 9-14 age category came from Jack Buss-Keating of Eynsham, seen here receiving his prize ...

Funding was provided by Eynsham Parish Council.
A new work of art takes shape: why not go and see the latest effort for yourself?
just before the floods of summer 2007
Young people have taken to the wall in a big way - every month a new image!
