Oh Wow! Congrats to the council! They have now created a nice place for the homeless, druggies and anyone else to sleep under at night and during bad weather!
The kids who congregate under the band stand in the evenings will love the extra undercover space thats been created for them!
The smokers outside the main entrances are really bad. I have to avoid walking through them when going to the hospital and tend to use the smaller side entrances instead. Although, they have smokers outside too! It’s not just the patients and visitors either, at lunch and break times staff sit out smoking.
The staff also smoke outside the side ambulance entrances, seen nurses and Dr’s there puffing away.
It sets a really bad example to children when they see health workers smoking, it’s totally at odds with being healthy.
I agree there should be a designated area away from view for smoker’s to smoke in. There are various outside spaces which could be used.
I really wanted Ty Pawb and defended the cost and could not wait for it to be here. I went along on opening day and have been back a couple of times since and am so disappointed with the place! It really is not up to scratch and it certainly is not what I envisaged.
It looks unfinished, there is no vibe and compared to other art hubs I visit it fails miserably.
Not hearsay are you stupid? The ” mate from school” is one of those on the streets who begs! !!!!
And you know damned well I said “If they are littering, begging, dealing ”
Tell you what, you go and offer one of them a room or sofa in your house!
Somehow don’t think you will lol
I’ve heard them telling each other how much money they can make and know one from school who has confirmed the amounts they can beg on a daily basis actually. So yep!, from the horses mouth!
I also know a few of them have been done for drug dealing and know for a fact they deal as I have seen them dealing to teens in the bus station.
You know exactly what I mean about them looking hungry so stop trying to be sarcastic because you failed miserably.
Not all are Wrexham born and bred, lots come in from other areas. And yes!, even if they are Wrexham residents, if they are littering, begging, dealing in drugs, throw them out of the town!!!
When I was younger I had this idealistic view of helping the homeless and felt so sorry for them. Now I am older, I see the thieving, the drug dealing, the litter, the abuse and the sheer cheek of some of them.
They sit outside Sainsburys ( why do they allow it? ) outside doorways in Island Green and are given loads of food, money and cups of Costa Coffee!
Then they go off with £50-£100 in their pockets, buy drugs to take and to deal!
People PLEASE stop giving them directly and please give to the charities that deal with them.
And one other thing, do any of them actually look like they are starving????? Look at the poor in India for example and compare them to our homeless!
Ideally, throw them out of the town and let decent people shop in peace!

I was hoping that the motivation behind it was that it’s seen as unethical to post photos of homeless people without their knowledge or permission,
Its actually not illegal to photograph anyone in public space with or without their consent.
Found this video online which more or less shows the parade.
I agree that Eagle’s meadow is clean compared to town but I have a real problem with all the smoking on the top level near the Odeon.The top of the steps through to ten pin bowling is awful. You can’t walk along there without having smoke blown in your face and the smoke stench is horrible.
I hate walking along there with children and as a non smoker find it very unpleasant. The shopping centre should be made non-smoking or they should have a separate smoking area.
I think “career politician” is a good description of Ian Lucas and it really saddens me to agree with it. I used to think he did mean well for Wrexham but lately am of the opinion we need someone else! I have voted Labour all my life but it shows how bad Ian is when I am actually thinking of voting Andrew Atkinson simply because he is more proactive in the town and has a more pleasant personality.
I have had contact with Ian on 2-3 occasions when I asked him to look into something for me. He came back with an answer completely unrelated to what I wanted him to ask!
