    (If I’m allowed to ask one!)

    What is Insp Wycherley (& NW Police)’s view of how their (increased) social media presence has been received and is there a perception of increased respect for PCSO’s especially as a result of informing and engaging with the public?

    Hopefully the stop/go will help a bit but seems like it’s getting so congested there the tailbacks are always going to happen no matter what.

    Temporary traffic lights on Cefn Rd causing some issues in mornings/evenings too.

    Seems a bit strange to be whinging about roadworks at this time of year seen as it’s usually March when everything happens at once!

    I read the report on Wrexham.com regarding the syringe found on Island Green.
    To be frank, I was astounded that this non story even warranted a mention on the site.
    It is one of many that have been found in and around Wrexham and, whilst definitely not condoning the actions of the people who discard needles without thought for others, is it hardly news worthy?

    Hi Benjamin

    Though I wasn’t involved with putting this story together there’s a broader context to consider. Firstly, children are on school holidays, so may frequent some of these places more often than usual especially so with it being summer. No children should have to come across anything like the people from the story.

    Also, the issue of responsibility – there are many areas such as the one in the story not belonging to the council but still heavily used by the public. If syringes, or any other discarded items which may present a hazard to the public are left lying around who does the buck fall with? If that question can be answered we’ll go a long way towards a cleaner town for all.

    Also should the company use a database of email addresses gathered from people who signed up to support Wrexham businesses to promote Chester Savers?

    Standard industry practice is to give people 2 opportunities to opt out. This is usually via a tick or untick box, followed by an introductory email (as opposed to a mailshot) to let them know they are registered to receive marketing messages and if they would prefer not to receive them they should let you know.

    Doesn’t sound a nice experience at all.

    Maybe you’d be better off leaving it for the company to sort out via trading standards as otherwise you’ll probably spend even more time on something that’s inconvenienced you enough already!

    Does anyone know how the fund raising for the Teenage Cancer Trust is going on Calon FM? I am a softie for cancer fund raising and any small change I have goes in the collection tins.

    They set up a Just Giving page here and are doing pretty well.

    Rob (as in Wrexham.com Rob!) will be on their show from about 10 or 11 this morning. I’ve had a note to say he is concerned about the odour he’ll be walking into (as they’ll be coming towards the end of the 52 hours by then!).

    Seen as it’s about a year since the failed city status bid does anyone think Wrexham is worse off for having lost out? Does it make any difference at all? Or just not bothered?

    Wrexhamite is used a lot in the articles here, we always thought the description was Wrexhamian – pronounced to rhyme with Canadian. It sounds better because Wrexhamite has a suggestion of insects – like termites, or just mites. Anybody want to join in a small posting to suggest our editors reconsider their usage of the word?

    Noted!! I’ll consult with the editor / inventor of Wrexhamite and see where the discussion takes us. I’m sure there was some rationale for using it, and it has been used a lot :o

    Whoa Luke – I can see this is an issue that hits home.

    Unfortunately as with most things the likelihood will be fracking only becomes an issue (or an inconvenience) to people if it lands in their backyard.

    Energy shouldn’t be something we’re ignorant about though – maybe a bit more engagement and education in the subject would help people save some money too :)
