    Take a look at what else we have lost over the years:

    Wrexham Now and Then

    Transportuser, I do have sympathy for your cause and I hardly use public transport as the services provided are so poor and it is not exactly cheap. I walk.

    I do think that the Council generally run a good website and that transport providers should be contacting the Communication Department with updates rather than vice versa.

    My internet remark was tongue in cheap but it is a sad state of affairs when we cannot phone a human to make an enquiry and get a proper response. Many of us grew up in the days before computers and we don’t know how to search for information or even use a mobile phone.

    I take your point about people from Mold and a night out in Wrexham but the buses back from/to Chester/ Wrexham finish too early and deter the youngsters from going to discos.

    Any feedback you receive from the Council would be received with interest.

    PS. GoM1 I would love to see your list of issues addressed and everyone had a chance to make their opinions known in the ‘Difficult Decisions’ Consultation – ‘You Said, We Did’ last year. The Council HAS to make massive savings which mean that the town is going to go to the dogs. Thank the Tories next time you hit a pothole!

    Did you read the disclaimer at the top of the Bus Timetable page?

    Disclaimer: The services and times listed on this website are subject to change at short notice. Wrexham County Borough Council will not be held responsible for any loss, damage or inconvenience as a result of any inaccuracy.

    I don’t know how people used to find out this sort of information before the Internet was invented.

    Wrexham County Borough Council works to ensure that local people receive good quality services that provide value for money within a reducing budget.

    Too many people expect the Council to hold their hands and wipe their bottoms (within a reducing budge) rather than getting on with it and looking for something themselves!

    Sorry for the rant Transportuser but its not a Council priority!

    Transportuser, rather than ranting here, why not do something productive and ask the Council the question?

    Nen, I nod in agreement! Problem is that it is going to get worse (I would love to add “before it gets better” but hand on heart cannot)

    PS I wonder if the quoted resident was on benefits and having their rent and Council Tax Paid? Cake and eating it springs to mind!

    It’s disgusting that volunteers have to do things that is a basic requirement of the Council – I.e. Keeping our town clean. I hope we’re getting a reduction in our Council tax accordingly.

    And they can’t say they’ve got no money given they are squandering thousands on posh new kitchens and bathrooms for council tenants!

    I also think it’s wrong that we have to rely on charity for end-of-life care (I.e. Nightingale House) – surely dignity at the end of our life should be provided for by the State.

    Point 1. – The Council has no money so why not let Andrew, Ian and their lot help out! Its not as if they are doing it for any other reason apart from their love of the Town.
    Point 2. – Is not squandering its a statutory requirement as the Welsh Housing Quality Standard requires all social landlords (like Wrexham Council) to improve their housing stock to an acceptable level by 2020.
    Point 3. – Agreed! What do we pay our NI Contributions for? They should support us in life and death. Not quite sure why you are making this point here though ………

    My suggestion of placing the Arts Hub on the site was ignored as the invisible covenant on the site restricts the use of the land for educational purposes only ………… but think of all the parking for the 10000s that will be using the Arts Hub every week!

    What’s wrong with Donald Trump?
    I wish Carwyn Jones would listen to me and build a wall to stop the English coming in.

    As for holidays and attendance … so what, they all work hard so I don’t see any harm in skiving now and again!
