    Thanks for posting up the link Rob. I was trying to copy/paste in the relevant part from the PDF on my phone last night, but it was proving to be a pain.

    The whole thing just doesn’t add up. The implication is that disused community centres are where the cost savings will be found – then used as a justification to transfer, sell off or demolish etc… Penycae community centre building that is in daily use.

    How can they state that something ia disused when a daily playgroup runs in there? Along with several other weekly functions.

    I think you just need to ask the Council which CC they mean rather than speculate and post on Facebook. I still think it will mean the other one – the one that is actually in Penycae Ward and that is disused as far as it’s intended purpose – it may simply be that the Council has decided it would rather demolish it and sell the land in order to get the cash now rather than rent and rates spread over several years.

    Nen your point about it being in the consultation document is clearly correct — but what percentage of residents will take the trouble to read it and even fewer to complete the survey that will take a good 30 minutes.

    I think the point is that when there are local Councillors elected surely they have a duty to inform and communicate effectively with their electorate.

    Hope it is the one that you have referred to that is proposed closure which gives a different slant on the original issue

    I’m sorry but if people can’t be bothered to spend 30 minutes reading and having their say on issues that affect everyone in Wrexham, then they can’t complain later when things are cut that they value. They probably spend more than 30 minutes a day reading and posting meaningless stuff on Facebook!

    Are you sure the document doesn’t refer to the other community centre in Penycae, the one that is no longer used as one? In fact I think that the one you are talking about does not even come within “Penycae” Ward so I assume it must be.

    How can you say that people are not aware of this though, when it’s stated clearly in the consultation document?

    I don’t understand this proposal – the Council seem to be struggling to keep the parks maintained properly as it is and are reliant on volunteers to make up for their shortfall. How is cutting resources further going to help? Unless, counter to what every other Town and City thinks, Wrexham doesn’t believe that properly maintained parks are a valuable asset.

    Why are people being allowed to openly drink alcohol and take drugs in Wrexham Town Centre despite there being a PSPO in force? Why is this not being effectively enforced by yourselves?

    Doesn’t Wrexham Council’s proposals to reduce PCSO funding seem like a very bad idea?

    Could you talk about the reports in mid October about Police spending 2 hours at Brymbo Cricket Club dealing with a group of bored youths? This makes you look very weak and sounds like a waste of valuable resources and taxpayers’ money

    Police spend two hours in Brymbo dealing with large group of bored youths – some as young as 12

    It’s disgusting that food banks even exist in this country. It is the government’s responsibility that vulnerable people have basic needs met like food, they shouldn’t be reliant on handouts from people who have already paid their taxes. I always refuse to give to foodbank volunteers in the supermarket out of principle.

    Time to put a stop to this witch hunt and encouraging of people to come forward with unfounded allegations?
