    Well young people bored in Brymbo tonight is probably the same in many other parts of Wrexham. Perhaps the local Councillor Paul Rogers should do something as he is the Lead Member for Young People.
    Perhaps if he and other Councillors had not voted for the Youth Service budget to be cut by £500k last year anti social behaviour across the county would not occur so often.
    The cut was one of the most ridiculous ones ever made by the Council when the obvious response from young people is they still want to meet up and socialise — the problem know is that the boundaries that could have been set by Youth Workers has now gone.
    The Council cut from those that could not stand up and have their voice heard- their so called Youth Council – Senedd yr Ifanc is a joke as they are not allowed to debate items that might be against what the Council want to do as it is run by Council Officer.
    The young people of Wrexham deserve a voice and a champion to support them not have a a Lead Member who very rarely meets with young people let alone listen to what they have to say, what has been done for young people since the new administration took over- nothing , what is planned for next year more cuts.

    What does it mean that they are “bored”? Surely lots of kids get bored but don’t resort to anti-social behaviour. Do these particular kids need to be spoonfed activities?

    They would probably be disruptive whatever. A game of football would probably be too strenuous. Pity that it isn’t politically correct to give them a clip round the ear.

    Completely disappointed by the lack of knee-jerk reactions on here ;) the Facebook lot had it all resolved in minutes.

    “Show these bored kids prison, allow the hitting of children again, string the parents up. In my day I feared the police as I got caught skipping through a field of wheat. My 15 year old is in bed by 7pm after a supper of bread and dripping and a mug of hot cocoa.”

    Cllr Rogers on his Tweet looks like he is now trying to blame youngsters from other areas for coming to Brymbo — wow Paul do you not realise that most of these young people ALL actually go to the same school as in case you haven’t noticed Brymbo does not have it’s own Secondary School.

    Are you proposing that all young people will need to have a passport to enter the sacred space called Brymbo or are you implying that the trouble was not caused by the youngsters of the parents that voted you in as Councillor.

    I accept young people shouldn’t expect to have everything handed to them on a plate and that they should be able to find things to occupy their time – I’m sure however that most writers on these Wrexham.com threads when they were growing up went to at least one youth club.

    If the same number of youngsters were congregating in the Caia Park area would the Police have dealt with the incident by staying around for two hours? Or may be there would not have been an ‘incident’ reported in the first place as tolerance level may be different between the two communities.

    Four young people on a street corner in some part of Wrexham would be seen as good the YP are getting out and socialising in other parts of the town four YP would be seen as anti social. Make your own mind up about how you personally define anti social behaviour.

    I definitely didn’t go to any Youth Club. There was no such thing where I lived. We made our own fun. Come to that neither did my children & they weren’t disruptive either.

    The police should have fetched the parents to deal with their unruly children. Somebody must recognised at least one of them.

    I agree that parents have responsibility but if Cllr Rogers is right and they have come from other villages then they may be the feral kids that were causing a nuisance a couple of weeks ago in Southsea and Wrexham.

    I grew up in a tiny village and we did have a youth club – once a week on a Thursday evening. All we did was gather there; there were no recreational activities such as pool tables or similar. I think we once had darts. Nothing was provided for the other evenings in the week. I don’t know how we coped with the burden of having so much free time.
