May 2014: 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 north-side playing field - 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 brought its own reward, with a steady stream of imaginative artworks.
