ARTIST Astrid Jaekel wants to tackle a long-standing graffiti problem by bringing some colour to the Meadows.

The 33-year old Edinburgh College of Art tutor is keen to erect panels on the ScottishPower substation at Middle Meadow Walk, featuring snapshots of life in the area.

Astrid’s work can already be seen brightening up the MacDonald Roxburghe Hotel on Rose Street.

She said: “There is a rich history in this area and I think this project would help celebrate that while also solving the graffiti problem.”

Her proposal is to be discussed at Barclay Viewforth Church at 7.30pm on March 18.
