    Glad to see that the few are allowed to disrupt the many yet again in Wrexham.

    I hope that Deputy Mayor and Garden Village Councillor Andy Williams is going to do something as i believe that this is already affecting activities at Watt’s Dyke School.

    Lets hope that when they decide to go, they take their mess with them and repair any damage done.

    A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.

    Take their mess with them and repair any damage done, has not happened before when ‘travellers’ set up camp here there and everywhere so why start now the good ole council tax payer will again be picking up the tab.

    I believe that if a Council has a designated area for travellers( which Wrexham Council have), any travellers that park up outside that area should be immediately moved on. There should be no need for a court order etc required.

    I agree with the views but need to point out that the traveller site in Wrexham on Ruthin Road is actually nearly always full with those who have made their home there as it is a fixed plot site. The site is not designed for transient travellers.
    The Council have on numerous occasions put forward locations for an additional site in line with WG guidance but as you can appreciate NIMBY comes in — not in my back yard.
    A number of other County Council have still not met the basic requirement of one site.
    The legal process of eviction can only work at the speed the court operates with the issuing of enforcement notices- seems strange 48 hours have elapsed when lots of private landowners get to eviction point in 24.

    The Council has a duty to carry out a needs assessment, which highlights whether the travellers have any welfare issues, such as pregnancy or ill health prior to any eviction taking place.

    Perhaps Andy the Councillor should red this and ask officers in the Council which action they have commenced.

    Yer that’s great that Dylan, but just get them off now, escort them to the border and don’t bother. Why should I pay for them, they do not pay rent, council tax, road tax, insurance, clean up after them selves but expect everything. And yer I am heartless, human rights bollocks!!

    I wonder how long they would be allowed to stay if they moved on to the Guildhall Green?

    The latest news is that due to the presence of dogs near the school, it was decided that pupils would be kept in the school during usual lunch break and playtimes.

    So Human Rights apply to Travellers but not to an entire school of children?

    (18 May 2016) The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, 2016 Day of General Discussion to be held in Geneva, Switzerland on 23 September 2016 will be devoted to the theme of Children’s Rights and the Environment. Inspired by this theme, IPA has developed a discussion paper on Children’s Right to Play and the Environment.

    This discussion paper highlights the critical role of play to children’s well-being, development and survival and reflects upon the impact of environmental conditions on the realisation of the right to play in children’s everyday lives.

    “The quality and benefits of play are highly susceptible to the environments in which it occurs. It can be compromised by extreme and toxic stressors brought about through the actions or inaction of adults. Wherever children’s right to play is negatively impacted there are consequences for children’s health, development and well-being.”

    Over to you Andy Williams …………..

    I hope that the litter police and dog wardens are keeping busy in Garden Village. All those £75 for dog poo & litter. Or are they only interested in easy targets?

    That’s a very good point zinger, perhaps if everyone reported dog poo through the line below they may send someone out …..

    Where are the local yobos when you need them? I’m sure if these people had a rough ride they would soon move on
