    Well, I had my first encounter with the Litter Police!

    I accidentally dropped a train ticket receipt (pulling my phone out of my pocket and it came out and fell on the floor without me knowing.

    The little Hitler ran up to me and tried to issue a Fine. I tried politely to explain that it was an accident however he didn’t seem to understand this (I guess they are not the sharpest tools in the box) so I used a different approach and assertively shouted “NO!” in his face and walked off briskly. He seemed to understand this better as after a few metres he gave up and moved onto someone else. This is the only language these people understand.

    Don’t worry, they have already announced improvements to the transport infrastructure – the widening of the bypass to three lanes, the electrification of the railways to the north and south…oh no, it was some 20mph zones and a few new signs – ah well.

    Nen said : Point 2 – I know but the Wrexham.com article had a quote from a resident saying how it was great that you can choose your colours and how great the showers were – this is not a show house!! Yes, meet the legal minimum requirement but the cheapest way possible e.g. Get the same standard colour (White is always the cheapest) and the basic shower. Or repair existing units rather than fit new. Beggars cannot be choosers!

    You are a cheeky fecker Nen! I pay full rent and full council tax on my Council House and I am on no benefits whatsoever!! I love and treat my house as if I owned it, keeping it clean and tidy [inside & out] – just because some people pay a big mortgage doesn’t mean they are better!

    I appreciate that you may be paying rent but it is not at a market rate so it’s effectively subsidised by the rest of us, therefore I don’t think they should be fitting them out with nicer kitchens and bathrooms than most of who have to pay for private housing can afford.

    It’s disgusting that volunteers have to do things that is a basic requirement of the Council – I.e. Keeping our town clean. I hope we’re getting a reduction in our Council tax accordingly.

    And they can’t say they’ve got no money given they are squandering thousands on posh new kitchens and bathrooms for council tenants!

    I also think it’s wrong that we have to rely on charity for end-of-life care (I.e. Nightingale House) – surely dignity at the end of our life should be provided for by the State.

    Point 1. – The Council has no money so why not let Andrew, Ian and their lot help out! Its not as if they are doing it for any other reason apart from their love of the Town.
    Point 2. – Is not squandering its a statutory requirement as the Welsh Housing Quality Standard requires all social landlords (like Wrexham Council) to improve their housing stock to an acceptable level by 2020.
    Point 3. – Agreed! What do we pay our NI Contributions for? They should support us in life and death. Not quite sure why you are making this point here though ………

    Point 1 – Fair point but I just think it encourages the Council to let things get so bad that volunteers have to step in

    Point 2 – I know but the Wrexham.com article had a quote from a resident saying how it was great that you can choose your colours and how great the showers were – this is not a show house!! Yes, meet the legal minimum requirement but the cheapest way possible e.g. Get the same standard colour (White is always the cheapest) and the basic shower. Or repair existing units rather than fit new. Beggars cannot be choosers!

    Point 3 – I raise it here because it is on the same theme – the public sector relying inappropriately on the “third / voluntary sector” for basic public services.

    No chance we’ll get any major investment by the Government (UK or Welsh)! Already being watered down and we’ll probably never hear of this again.
