Thanet District Council Launch a #NameThatTag Appeal

Thanet District Council has launched an appeal to residents of Thanet, to help them to identify a graffiti writer in East Kent.

The ‘SENSI’ or ‘SENZ’ tag has been seen in a number of different inks and styles, on post boxes, lamp posts, trees, buildings and walls across the district and has also been seen in parts of Herne Bay and Canterbury.

Thanet District Council’s Community Safety team have been working alongside Police officers and are currently monitoring this activity, which is costing hundreds of pounds worth of damage.

Images of the tag have been circulated on social networking sites including, Facebook and Twitter, in an appeal to local people to be vigilant if they see any activity along these lines and help us keep Thanet a beautiful place to both live and visit.

Graffiti is criminal damage, which can be punishable by fines or imprisonment. Officers would like to urge anyone who has any information around the person responsible for causing this damage, to contact Thanet District Council’s Community Safety team directly on 01843 577 737 or email

Cllr Iris Johnston, Cabinet Member for Community Services said: “Graffiti makes our streets look uncared for and is costing taxpayers hundreds of pounds.

“To ensure we can tackle this anti-social behaviour, we need local people to work with us and report any information they have surrounding the offences so we can take immediate action.”
