Northern Agricultural Association (NAA), president, David Williams said he was extremely disappointed to see the vandalism on the wall.

“The painters only finished on Monday and on Tuesday morning the walls are covered in graffiti,” he said.

“The NAA has just spent more than $100,000 on renovating the facade and to see the graffiti make everyone involved with our organisation very upset.”
