    Its about time too, BUT! Some kind of facility/area has to be designated at hospitals for smokers – away from the main entrances of course. Yes they should all give up we know that, but Auntie Betsi get real – a smoker needs a fag even more when in hospital. But if they do smoke outside of the designated area, then taser them!

    I am afraid that is the sensible view, but when it comes to all sorts of issues these days it ain’t going to happen, common sense goes out of the window.

    The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

    I thought it is already banned at the Maelor as it stands now, but is not enforced, so who is going to enforce it ?

    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!!!

    I’m generally in the Janey and Sheefag camp :) especially when my 86 years old mother was surrounded by them when her scooter broke down in town !

    Quote from Sheefag :

    Your solution of appeasement, midnight vigils, lighting tealights and singing Kumbaya with your sandal wearing, Muesli knitting mates, clearly isn’t working.

    Have thought this about many issues, terrorists, shooters you name it, it don’t solve nowt.

    Retirement would have meant selling the business – this was clearly a closure due to lack of trade..

    It was due to lack of trade, but mainly caused by the on going building works and lack of toilets for months now, as already stated a disgrace really..

    I went to Ty Pawb yesterday and had a good catch up with a school friend who has a stall and had one in the old Peoples Market. I thought I’d have to go get a packet of Kleenex. She was saying that the customer count is down 80% on what it was for similar period two years ago and her takings are 30% below break even (not even a profit for her working over 45 hours a week.
    She is hoping the Bank Holiday may improve trade but was worried that if the weather was too nice no one would want to come to an indoor location.
    Her plan is to hang on in their till the Bank Holiday at the end of the month before handing back her lease if there is no improvement as she can’t afford to use any more savings.
    She said the traders are trying to get an urgent meeting with the Council Officers and Members to see if there could be a hold off period for paying rent for three months and improve the marketing and signage around town to see if things improve as she is not the only one in this position.
    It is really sad that someone who set their sights on being part of a new venture is now feeling so despondent and disillusioned.

    It is sad, but everyone, but everyone, apart from the people who tried to convince people that “the king was wearing clothes” forecast what was going to happen!

    I also visited this afternoon, and there was a lot there today, (on a poor weather day to) but unfortunately after looking around at what’s on offer I can see it ending up pretty much the same as the former peoples market with not much to entice people in there.

    The other thing is after walking through the old TJ Hughes shop, not sure what that is all about !

    I do hope I am wrong by the way.

    Count down to the ‘official’ opening – if you have nit had your invite yet then clearly you are not one of the elite of Wrexham even though you are actually paying for the event through your rates and taxes. Perhaps everyone who pays rates and taxes should attend to claim their glass of wine and nibbles.

    As the rate payers in Wrexham are going to be paying the subsidy year on year it is a disgrace that there is a two year event- why have public event in Easter Monday and VIP on the 29th…

    It’s time ratepayers woke up to the fact that there are events for the ‘elite’ that ordinary people are paying for– claim your share of the gravy train or get your voice heard by objecting.

    I am afraid you can protest all you like it won’t make a blind bit of difference as been seen by this project from the very start, only spoken to one person that agrees with it, there again someone I know quite well from Wrexham told me he never talked to one person that was voting to leave the EU where as most people I talked to were voting leave, must be the company I keep ;)

    Personally do agree with all of your comments by the way.

    Hears a novel idea use all the cameras they have up and down to give out fines for littering as well as for speeding, or instead some would say:)

    See there are some Councillors having coffee and cake in town , can they take a walk to the Groves roundabout and see the flooding both sides of Chester Road. Surely this can be solved !

    There was a problem on this roundabout before it was re-surfaced a few short months ago, I think someone mentioned that the problem should be rectified either before they re-surfaced the road or at least during the works, Ah Well ..
