    Re: the reply that told us “there is no facility to view webcasts after this six month period” I have enquired if we can pay the £75 to get a copy as that seems to be new information for councillors/officers

    Councillors to make more informed decision on future of webcasting meetings after previous annoyances

    Another recent review using similar image sets and phrases etc.

    Someone did mention they had heard the architect had arranged some national PR so perhaps this is outcome? No idea if that is the case or this is something else or entirely organic.

    I am sure the more informed readers can provide the detail if they want to post up.

    Rob does this reflect what you are picking up with your ear to the ground!

    I did pop in to eat, have a cuppa and do some voluntary work – however rather than having my ear to the ground I got it bent regarding the recent three stories on rent/contracts/gallery closure :)

    In the conversation the topic of contracts/agreements was mentioned, so I asked a nearby trader if they had been given one or not – and was told no.

    One thing that has been passed over this evening is this public Facebook post from Just Desserts (try them if you have not!) that is doing an informal canvas on how much business was lost due to their then unfinished unit for opening day – as they have been asked for figures.

    Calling all our lovely customers! We've been asked to estimate how much business we lost by Not being able to open due…

    The BBC were floating around today as well, but I have not seen the report and just looking online can’t find it. The BBC site does suggest news “From other local news sites” in North East Wales, and links to the Daily Post’s “Sex, cake and mirrors on the ceiling: Loose Women’s most outrageous moments” so will have a nose at that instead.

    It is worth testing out the food – you can get the food to go in boxes from there, so would imagine that is what happened if they had a taster :)

    Regarding rents etc – after following up on something that is due to be published shortly I am told one or two are signing or have signed up, and are getting a meaty demand for back rent in full upfront, as promised by WCBC.

    Several appear to have similar questions over the difference between a licence and a lease, however there does not appear to be collective advice being sought as far as I know.

    The overall figures I saw that covered 2016-2017 totalled a near bang 15% fee share.

    If continued that 15% figure would be in line with what was setup in Flintshire as a benchmark.

    So the above £98k would roughly be 85% of £115k if my Acton Park CP mousematics is right.

    The BBC reported: ‘Wrexham’s deal began in April 2016 and lasts until May 2019, with the option to extend for 12 months. The council would not reveal how much it makes from fines.”

    The BBC could have seen the contract, and the revenue in / out figures if they wanted to. The percentage is a very simple bit of maths from that :)

    I have seen it, and anyone on here can see it. They just have to ask in the right way / time.

    Just had a pointer on this – it is now run by the Canal and River Trust and there is also one smaller privately run one – by the Chapel possibly?

    Fire crews called out to Egerton Street this afternoon

    Oddly the second fire engine appeared to go the wrong way, and at one point was blocked off by a taxi who was adamant they wanted to drop someone at McDonalds rather than getting out of the way of blue lights.

    Unfortunately as much as you may enjoy the company of those self-centered killing machines, is is estimated that cats in the UK catch up to 275 million prey items a year, of which 55 million are birds. This is the number of prey items which were known to have been caught. We don’t know how many more the cats caught, but didn’t bring home, or how many escaped but subsequently died.

    In that case I think the birds have organised an insurgency, the magpies in-particular seem to be targeting her by swooping in a rather aggressive manner.

    Magpies are the wannabe killing machines, with a kleptomaniacal sideline, basically thieving flying rats :)
