    You say Ms Atherton’s view are clear and quote her press release but you forgot the old adage that a picture tells a 1,000 words.
    Some examples:-
    Appear prominently and centrally in a photo opposing a local ( Gresford) planning issue but let others including yours truly, the local county councillor and the wonderful residents do the hard work!

    Photo shoot by Churchill statue , leave others to actually clean it.

    Say the right words on local produce after lockdown eases ( sic ) but what picture do you choose . An American giant corporation. No wonder the local businesses kicked off!
    Get the picture now !

    Hi Sarah 4 quick questions for you!

    SA – ok
    Me- what do you think of the reported lessening of food standards from the USA into Britain?
    SA – ( quick glare ) – next!

    Me- last September you supported declaring a climate emergency in Gresford – do you think there is a valid environmental argument for eating less red meat?
    SA- ( flare of nostrils) – next

    Me- are you really helping local food producers in this promotion?
    SA- pass

    Me- as a health professional do you believe in promoting “ healthy eating ?”
    SA – pass me the Pepsi on your way out !

    Vote the councillors out “ he had the good sense to make sure he did not infect anyone —- did not take the tube or train ,”

    If he can travel 240 miles and back ( at least once ) without needing to top up with petrol , or electric charge – please inform me post haste where I can get this model of car !
    Let’s presume they raided the larder and had a packed lunch – so no food stop. However if their 4 year old can last a 240 mile journey without a loo stop or two they don’t need childcare they should enrol him in Mensa and share their formula with consultant urologists and paediatricians ,
    Therefore the likelihood is they needed services and there was a chance of these two infected people spreading the infection. Would it not have been simpler and less potentially contagious to bring the child carer to the child rather than the child and ( reportedly infected. ) parents to the grandparents?

    Not only was I present at the July meeting I spoke directly on this issue and outlined the multiple reasons for rejection. Glad to see common sense prevail and that the planning, and particularly, the Highways issues were decisive. Whilst little sympathy for the planning advice in the report what is untenable is that since Aled Roberts and co bequeathed the council NO Local Development Plan ( LDP ) in 2011 and a shortfall in the housing supply Wrexham has been operating with their planning arms firmly tied behind their backs . Roll on a new LDP!

    To add to the frustration our Community Council has made tentative enquires about helping to resolve a long standing issue with soak aways that aren’t working .
    The area – Clapper Lane will effectively never be a priority as it only inconveniences and therefore endangers traffic and pedestrians and not properties. Our enquires have been rebuffed as “we could not deal with insurance matters!”
    Our indemnity insurance is for £5m !

    She got voted in. She doesn’t need to take any notice of you now.

    Yes she got voted in and as I am a constituent surely she should at least respond when contacted.
    I believe my councillor Andrew Atkinson knows I did not vote for him , and unlikely to do so , but to give him credit when I contacted him last October about an issue he took it up immediately and an officer of the council responded in the hour

    I am going to “ celebrate “ the fact that next week the NHS is going to cop an extra £350m.
    I bet they are planning already- maybe a couple of extra GPS for Gresford surgery !?

    What a way for a “ caring “ MP to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz this weekend but by voting to deny current child refugees their fundamental rights that were denied to so many in the last World War , with horrendous consequences.
    I have written to check if she did vote with the Government who seem to have learned no lessons from the past!

    Due to the lack of response by my MP , or her office I checked with “ They work for you”. Was not surprised to see she decided to mark Holocaust by voting to separate vulnerable refugee children from their parents. Not surprised but deeply disappointed, and what happened to the maxim “I will answer all my constituents whether they voted for me or not.”

    A number of us over a number of years advocated a bus link from town to the hospital, which would also link train stations, university and some shopping complexes . We need to reduce ou dependence on the car.
    N.B, – when I worked there many moons ago I had a scooter!
