    It’s not that bad a place in terms of facilities to be fair. Ysgol Penrhyn is about a five minute walk away and the same for the local Londis and Chinese takeaway in the middle of the village. Then you’ve got the Plas Coch retail park with Sainsbury’s and Aldi etc a short drive away.

    With secondary schools, it depends on how the council measures the nearest but most children go to either Ysgol Bryn Alyn or Clywedog as far as I’m aware.

    I don’t really go to local pubs that often but there’s a few up the hill in Pentre Broughton or the Plas Coch.

    Why are people associating the reversal of the proroguing of parliament with an attempt to influence Brexit? I think it was Johnson himself who said the initial decision had nothing to do with Brexit.

    If you don’t feel Mr Lucas represents you then you’re more than entitled to vote for someone else, but it’s a complete fallacy to suggest he is required to go along how Wrexham voted on the EU referendum.

    The job of an MP is to exercise their own judgement on what they feel’s best for the country and their constituency. If based on the evidence he feels Brexit would be bad for the UK and Wrexham then he’s perfectly entitled to that view and to act on it.

    To put it another way, it’s not unforeseeable that a referendum on the death penalty could result in the majority wanting to bring it back. As a man from a legal background, he might think that’s a bad idea as there’s rarely such a thing as 100% proof in any criminal case.

    Aren’t we ignoring the fact that part of Wrexham has already overwhelmingly voted to reject Boris? Votes are binding and can’t be overturned. Respect the will of the people of Clwyd South!

    A post on facebook appeared last night about the treatment of some students in Darland school. Not sure what has gone exactly but it is centred around a boy being restrained by a number of teachers and dragged back to school from Rossett Park. People are getting very uptight and angry about it!

    It would be useful to know the background to the video really. Too much trial by social media these days.

    A report on the impact of the new homes on Gatewen Road in New Broughton shows it will increase queuing times at the Ramada roundabout by four minutes. Surely the pollution created by this and other new developments under the Welsh Government guided LDP will offset any supposed benefits of the 50mph zone?

    I hear it raised suspicion after the person who bought the pizza was told it would cost them less than £20.

    He put the box down in shock and called the fuzz.

    As mentioned above, the Maelor and society in general is worse affected by the legal drug that is alcohol. I’ve also noticed weed seems to be smoked quite freely round town. Probably indicates that police recognise it as low impact too.

    Cannabis is generally not thought to lead to people taking harder substances.
