Fully agree Matt — there is probably no one on Wrexham.com who has either benefited, a relative or a friend who has not benefited from the medical skills and care from someone who has not been born in the UK.
This thread was started to call women in Wrexham to come together – it is not an anti-male stance by any means but just needing people to realize the potential there is from women being involved if there was flexibility for meetings etc.
I am also not advocating a woman should be elected because she is a woman – it is about ability and merit- all that is needed though is a level of confidence that sometimes women lack. This not about creating women-only shortlists
For a variety of reasons, women will often have a different view than men on an issue – that surely is good as it could foster greater debate on issues of importance rather than just 100% yes in favor of what the Leader says will happen.
“We” the Wrexhamcom thread contributors may think this is a daft idea but Costa will have done their sums and if they stacked up to show a profit then a decision is made. They don’t come up with sites on a whim. They will have looked at close proximity to Glyndwr and student numbers, parents dropping children off at Plas Coch, etc.June 2, 2018 at 1:29 pm in reply to: Ty Pawb Market is no longer a Market in Council report on Markets!! #150085
I wish I had your confidence that there will be any surpluses from Ty P\wb market that could be reinvested, it is probably better than the Butchers and General Market are separate – at least if they make a surplus it should be retained rather than put into Ty Pawb Market to subsidise.
It was reported recently that Ty Pawb has full occupancy yet when I walked around last week there were at least six units that had shutters down and no signage or notices to indicate ‘we are coming’ which surely any new business would want to raise awareness.
I do have sympathy regarding the difficulty of smoking but whilst it is not seen as being as addictive as smoking drugs the emphasis will never be put on it– big capitalist companies making millions and Governments collecting Millions – where is the incentive for this two bodies to make a difference and ban the product.
There is such an irony with the issue of smoking on health premises – Smoking and make you ill so you go to a hospital for whatever treatment to receive medication when you then smoke to higher the risk of smoking-related illnesses.
If Berwyn prison can be made smoke free (before anyone jumps in there is illegal smoking there) surely the hospital grounds can be for patients and staff.
Berwyn issues nicotine patches so why can’t the hospital- as you can tell I am not nor ever have been a smoker.
Wonder if the Chief Executive in Flintshire was to leave if there would be a move to try for a joint Chief Executive- it has happened in England without there being a full merger.
Begging is not just a drug issue it could be that some of them are alcoholics needing their bottle sherry or 2 tr bottle of cider.
Council Watcher is right we all need to look at our own family and friends and see how many of them could be sliding into this very murky world. We must all stop talking about people in our own families as if they may only have a small problem that relatives and friends can control- how many people have a family aunty or uncle who is always referred to as “they like a few drinks” when what we really mean is they are drinking too much.
As for begging, I don’t agree with Sheefag is you sweep them all up from the street then wait for the next cohort and do the same. Surely that is an ever decreasing spiral and an acceptance that Society has no solution.
Full agree with needing to cut off the supply and then something may be able to be done- sort out the Mr Bigs of the supply chain and then there could be hope. Whilst there is big money to be had from introducing someone to a life of misery then there will always be a Mr Big who will move from the supply of one type of substance to a new one.
This is about visual image – NIMBYISM Not in my backyard- there is an assumption that the beggers are causing a nuisance – visually they may not look good for the town but how many people have actually been assisted by any of the beggers – for most they are more of a trip hazard as they sit on the pavements.
This sounds like a Council response to complaints about retailers — not seen any beggars around Ty Pawb yet ( I wonder if it is becsie there is so little footfall it is not worth their while to hang around the doors).
It appears that some (possibly All) of the stall holders are being given a rent-free period due to uncompleted building work, disruption and lack of marketing for Ty Pawb.
Wonder if any of the traders prepared to give details of the deals and for how long? or Would someone from the Council give details of how much this new subsidy is now going to be paid and what budget pot it is coming from?
When you read the article on Wrexham.com about the many numbers of people supported by the Council Workops programme that is going to lose their ‘work’ due to funding cuts at the same time money is being thrown at Ty Pawb and all of the private traders as if there is an open cheque book. It is totally immoral of the Council to be acting in this way.
