    Another side issue to the free car parking in December is that the new Ty Pwb arts hub has car parking income from the Peoples Market as part of its financial budget- if the free car parking is carried out again for Council Car parks have they adjusted their budget forecast to reflect a loss of 1/12th of their car park revenue. This adding to the already heavily predicted loss.

    I appreciate that business is busy this time of the year but the report makes no reference to involving business people. I am sure that any business owner will say that one of the most crucial things that affect their business location is whether they have shops either side that is clean, tidy and above all their doors are open. Retail and town successes re totally interdependent on EVERYONE. The arrogance of the Council in the report looking to find success from within the corridors of the Guildhall or in the case of this report the corridors of the Council offices on Ruthin Road is really taking the Micky.

    Congratulation to all this businesses and individuals that have set up the Saturday events — most of the effort coming from outside of the Council.

    There is a huge deficit in the Local Government Pension scheme ( in Wrexham it is the old Clwyd Local Government scheme) so in addition to the amount being allocated to the individual there is also 20% plus that is being paid to cover the deficit.
    As the staff numbers contributing are reducing with cutbacks over a period of time the contribution to fund the deficit is likely to be close to 30% within 5 years. Poor financial investments in the past mean local ratepayers today are now paying for historical failings.

    On the assumption that a number of contributors are one of the same – the Christmas get together would only need a very small room to meet!!!

    I think all Thread Poster should meet for a Christmas get together and wear two badges one with thread names and one with real names (assuming people still used their real name) would be interesting to see what disguises some of the posters put on for a face to face meeting

    I would not trust Facebook or Twitter as a way to verify anyone’s identity- same issue as on this thread.
    Not supporting Mike Davies anymore than any other Councillor but here are his details- not he is one of only two Councillors in Wrexham who have generally decided not to become part of an Independent Group but to actually remain Independent

    The same thing applies to the so-called digital bus time information — capital spend and then no revenue to keep updated — total waste of money.
    What about the Town Centre free wifi is that working yet or another white elephant system. (apologies to elephants)

    With so many art students and lecturers in Wrexham is it right that the Council commissioned someone from outside the area to produce the design!
