At last a Councillor & an MP in agreement that these ‘poor unfortunates’ (not) need to do something which might make them into regular human beings. I don’t know that education, as in lessons, is the answer but I certainly think that they should have to do some good, strictly supervised hard graft to pay for their room for the night. The more comfortable they are made just encourages them to continue their bad behaviour.
Bringing these miscreants in from other areas is certainly not the answer for the good folk of Wrexham.
I walked past there yesterday and some were laying down in the garden of rest and others drinking from cans. Obviously way out and looking like down and outs. Seems like no one is bothered about them there.
One of the problems with the people who are being seen as ‘drunk/spaced out’ is that there are younger and younger people being involved and are new to this type of activity. You don’t need to look far on the streets of Wrexham now identify young people (under 18’s) who clearly under the influence. The change to making Legal Highs doesn’t seem to have had any impact other than increase the numbers (or made them more visible).
How many people have seen someone walking down the street and suddenly slump and then carry on about 10 minutes later — this is an effect of NPS “Illegal High” — if you haven’t seen anyone look closely next time you are in town they are all around you.
This craze is now something done in private but part of some peoples every day life– solutions required now. Remember all of these people are brothers/sisters, sons /daughters, aunties/uncles — get the message the problem could be in anyone’s family..
It’s a tough issue, an idea that comes up time and time again is a green light drinking zone, somewhere off the grid where they may do what they like. Generally residents don’t care what happens to the person drinking or using drugs, they care about the area being clean and presentable to passers by and family.
It’s a problem riddled with a lack of care,
1. lack of care from the user make a scene/mess.
2. And by the public (me included) who truly don’t know what to do with them. which is creating vast amounts of frustration which is adding hate to the problem.
