I’m puzzled. I thought that this was cancelled mainly due to the negative reaction from the locals. I don’t remember any mention of a fun fairy godfather offering to do it for nothing. I’ve had a look at the forum thread from last year and no mention of it there either. One of the last posts, presumably talking about the Town centre forum says
Going by this evenings meeting it seems the events will occur, just not with the beach.There was concern about plans being made then pulled due to a perceived public backlash, and that can put off ideas being put forward by any party.
One person asked if £2k could be raised if it could still go ahead, and a cut off date was given.
Basically the feeling appeared to be no as its not worth the grief, and considering the parties in the room have previously been in favour and had been working towards (some putting money in) that was quite sad to see.
Still no mention of the offer.
Seems odd that this has turned into the Council being criticised for not doing something that they proposed but most people didn’t want them to do in the first place.
All the gloom & doom merchants stop anything that makes life a little pleasanter. I am sure that a little good, clean, inexpensive fun that doesn’t hurt anyone would make us want to stop in town longer to shop a little & have a coffee or lunch out.
How can Offa Community Council have donkey rides but Wrexham County Council can’t ?
Probably because they haven’t told the H&S Squad. Well done them.
