Moerewa Rugby Club Mural


 I spotted this mural in Moerewa recently painted on the side of their rugby club. No idea who painted it but it's sad that people have sprayed graffiti over parts of it. Even above, the window off the building seems to be falling off, in a state of disrepair even.  One of New Zealand's small quiet towns...

Linking up with Mural Monday.

  3. That's a shame. Graffiti is really common here which is why we haven't posted any of the few wall paintings we have found around us. Is the rugby club still in use?

  5. It's sad that someone should decide to ruin someone else's work. The building looks in need of very urgent care. That window looks decidedly dangerous.

  9. That's the only trouble with outdoor murals - they are subject to the harshness of being out there. It does cheer the building up so much!

  10. I can tell that was once a lovely mural that told the story of the Rugby Club. Sad about the tagging and the state of the building, but a lovely find, Amy.

  16. It's a nice mural but it's too bad someone felt the need to tag it. The upkeep of the building could be better too.

  17. Sad that the building isn't being taken care of.

    Graffiti taggers deserve to get hit in the face.

On our recent re-visit to the Symonds Street Cemetery right next to the Jewish section is this mural painted on the side of an old building....
