It looks like there is only one feature that reflects the local – all the metal weld mesh reflects Brymbo Steelworks. What about coal, seven winders of Wales. Sport etc- the place looks barren with no character.

How anything financial for North Wales can get through would be a miracle — ALL of the AMs on the Finance Committee represent areas South of Newport!! How do we get a voice from the North on such an important committee?

Rondetto your factual!! statement about the mess and vomit in High Street seems very wide of the mark — are we now saying the Council are paying for people to vomit and drop litter.
The Council may be responsible for the cleaning but they ceratinly are not guilty of creating it in the first place- that honour goes to our nightime revellers all of wholm a re paying to get into their drunken states in the pubs and clubs of Wrexham — should these establishments not be held responsible for evening clean up. Also why aren’t the ‘Litter Brigade’ operating at night?
Joan fully agree with your views – this is unnecessary paperwork — the Police already have powers for drunken behaviour, breach of the piece and drug consumption. This is all irrelevant apart from money making and big brother. It also now means that a number of activities that take place on Llwyn Isaf will no longer be permitted — Food Festival, Focus Wales, Concerts!!
The food Police will now have to test everyone’s sandwich box when they sit on the grass on Llwyn Isaf to check for content!
If this is intended to stop the relatively small number of street drinkers then how will penalty notices be effective – they can’t/won’t pay so go to court for a fine, can’t/won’t pay so they are back in court and then sent to prison — wonderful logic in social engineering.
The law for Disability Discrimination states that a business or service provider must make reasonable adjustments – in a small businesses without access this could actually be a bell on the door to alert a staff member.
Benjamin appears to be implying from his statement – “Too often, disability or infirmity is used as a method of extracting more from society than can reasonably be expected, without resorting to preferential treatment”. that disabled people are on the ‘take’. I agree that there may be some people who have a disability due to self affliction– drinking, smoking eating excessively and they could have potentially prevented the disability this however is probably the majority as I am sure no one intentionally goes out of their way to become disabled.
Quite surprised by some negative comments – ARGOS is a store that primarily operates using that catalogue or on line as their shop window as they only have minuscule stock on display. Many people have preselected at home and grandparents showing their grand children.
There are clearly a number of you who dint know what it is like to be disabled or unable to access shops or transport were is your understanding?
Alun how accessible is your shop? Can someone in a wheelchair access your displays? Can you genuinely say that you are able to help all people who have mobility issues to be able to shop.
I take my hat off to Mel and wish him well with his campaign.June 26, 2016 at 11:18 pm in reply to: Council ‘Wont Cave In To Welsh Government Pressure’ Over Possible Groves Listing #115213
Dragon more than happy to check my facts but I suggest you get your Council source to put in writing that the money is coming from the Education budget as well.
The system for Local Government is that funding from the Welsh Government is based on a formula for number of children and some additional variables. The funding comes ring fenced and the LA have to use it for the delivery of education- to use it for the purpose to keep a redundant building up would not comply with the funding arrangements.
The use of ‘school budget’ for non education purpose has been proved to be inappropriate and a school in Powys have just had this proved when they had been caught using education delivery funding to bus children in from outside of their catchment area- an expenditure not permitted.
In the case of the Groves it is within the portfolio of Assets and Economic Development whose head is Steve Bayley – Education is the responsibility of John Davies. I suggest that you write to both of them asking which one of them is paying for the security and other works.
If I am wring then every parent in the county should be asking why money is being withheld from the education of their child in school.June 23, 2016 at 9:48 pm in reply to: Council ‘Wont Cave In To Welsh Government Pressure’ Over Possible Groves Listing #115054
The Council are playing smoke and mirrors – the Groves is not in the budget within Education and hasn’t been for a number of years as it sits with the Head of Housing and Economy– used to be Economic and Assets– they are responsible for ALL Council property. The Groves moved from an Education Asset after St Josephs left after their temporary occupation.
Nen you are perfectly correct there are virtually no Arts establishment that earn enough income to run without a subsidy.
However when it comes to a Local Authority provision and the choice of expenditure is Education or Social Care vs Arts- I’m sure most people would want Education and Social Care for ‘everyone’ rather than a small minority.
