    I just can’t get over how sh*t the place looks. I was expecting smooth plain white walls, some decoration, an artistic space that was in itself neutral and uncluttered so as to emphasise the art pieces or other events being staged. It just looks so messy and amateurish. I honestly find myself wondering what all the money was spent on.

    Is there a way of finding out specifically where the millions invested into this project went? I mean, I expected the white walls art gallery vibe and that on opening day it would look lovely, but I still didn’t think Tý Bach would be a success. I suppose I thought the council’s commitment to it was due to delusions of grandeur. But I never imagined it was going to look this bad. It really is shocking to me – and that’s quite an achievement in my eyes for Wrexham Council who, in my opinion, already set the bar very low.

    I feel similarly about the area around the bus station – that monochrome paving and weird planters. I wonder whether the council was duped into thinking it looked hip and modern, or whether they are duping us into believing it is hip and modern and cost what they said it did (and was worth every penny).

    I also wonder about housing planning decisions. E.g. when a council officer recommends/ agrees/ approves another HMO for substance abuse people in Wrexham town. I can’t for the life of me understand why things are approved anymore.

    I honestly wonder whether there are backhanders.

    And WTF is that corrugated iron caravan supposed to be for?

    Sheefag, were you censored or did you delete it yourself?
    The photo is still on the Tŷ Pawb food court webpage.

    On the subject of flooding, there’s a bloke in a beret who’s pissed himself. Now there’s inclusive for you.

    Sheefag, I must take issue with you on this, and your accusations against this man.
    I don’t know how you’ve got the gall to call that a beret – surely it’s a flat cap?

    OMG, thank you! This has really amused me. Though I feel a little sorry for the man in the hat.

    Perhaps he confused Tŷ Pawb with Plât Bach and thought he was visiting a Tŷ Bach?

    On the Tŷ Pawb website, the photos for the food court bring to my mind people sheltering in a local school gymnasium, perhaps due to flooded homes. It just looks so uninspiring.

    Oh, don’t. You’ll get me all nostalgic for the old bus station toilets with their shiny toilet paper. I’m sad to say it, but in my opinion, they were heaps better than the toilets in the current bus station.

    For what it’s worth I think the new Mayor was able to chair the whole thing pretty well – nobody told him he’d be dealing with children.

    As a direct consequence of this comment, I watched the recording. I’ve never watched one before. OMG!!!

    Maybe they could introduce a rule where only the person holding a specific object (the “talking stick”) is permitted to speak. I don’t know why, but the first object that came to my mind was a gonk. They could have a “talking gonk”. I don’t think a gonk would make them look foolish – I think that ship has already sailed.

    Alternatively, perhaps someone could introduce the councillors to good manners and courtesy.

    Maybe moving all of the substance abuse services/charities out of Wrexham would solve or at least reduce the problem. When I say move I don’t care whether they go elsewhere or just shut down. The concentration of these services in Wrexham town is a magnet to those with substance abuse issues. They provide temporary night time accommodation but then turf people out onto the streets during the day. They prop up (“enable”) the substance abuse issues.

    As long as we have, in Wrexham, such organisations that provide a night time sticking plaster to a 24/7 problem, I don’t believe that Wrexham will ever overcome this issue. If we magically fixed the problems of all of the current ‘druggies’ in Wrexham, they will quickly be replaced by new druggies, because this is where the services are located.

    I don’t believe Wrexham will ever make any significant inroads into this issue. I think we’re stuck with it.

    But at least we have a lovely new arts centre, eh.

    Very well said Jimbow – based on a £300k+ deficit paid for by ratepayers we are already paying. If I was a ‘Friend of Ty Pawb’ based on what is there at present I would be looking as quick as possible to find the ‘unfriend’button the same as on Facebook.

    I agree. jimbow hit the nail squarely on the head.
