One thing that’s always puzzled me…how come all the schools in the area seem to close at the first sign on snow, citing the fact that the staff can’t get there, however most factories etc manage to stay open despite also needing their staff to run them? It’s weird.
The savings on daily parking charges is a nice little “Christmas Bonus” for those of us who work in the town centre. Every little helps, as they say.
I vaguely remember seeing some consultation about this but it just said something about them reviewing the frequency of collections – I assumed that this meant they were considering going back to weekly collections for the black bins as a lot of people (big families) seem to struggle with fortnightly. Naturally, I supported this proposal.
Why don’t Wrexham authorities give these people ASBO’s banning them from the town centre?
Don’t worry, I’m sure that the consultation exercise will put the kybosh on this proposal – from what I’ve seen on social media the vast majority of people are against cuts of rangers.
Well I know for a fact that Wrexham council gave every tenant that lived in these houses up to £10k to move out plus moving costs.
Also most of these tenants moved into newly built houses on the edge of the estate with whatever flooring & decoration they wanted.
If they had a notice period in the contract why didn’t they just give notice?
Anyone else noticed that the proposed cuts affect the most vulnerable in Wrexham – schoolchildren,the disabled, the elderly? Cuts affecting the average resident are minimal.
Yes, I noticed that – and commented on the fact, it’s disgusting isn’t it? I think the reason is that those groups are less likely to fill in the consultation or to complain – for a start the consultation seems to be largely (or all?) online – many elderly and disabled people don’t have access to the internet so won’t get a say, and schoolchldren are unlikely to participate either.

Detox Unit, Hafan Wen, Watery Road, Wrexham, LL13 7NQ
The number to call to report needles is:

email them on firstname.lastname@example.org
OR complete the online form at http://www.wrexham.gov.uk/english/env_services/service_requests/syringes.cfm
Needles can also be disposed of at any GPs or pharmacy.
How anyone can say there’s no way to report it, or there’s no needle exchange is beyond me, and simply strikes me as apathy from some of the general public, for which we have a strong representative sample of the apathetic population right here on this forum.
If you want to see fewer needles in public spaces, you need to report it and support the ‘authorities’ in keeping the county clean. The problem isn’t with the ‘authorities’ (as you can see above) to fix, as there’s plenty of opportunity for exchange or disposal, it lies with the users. Clearly the users don’t give a fig, it’s therefore up to the public to report any needles that they spot.
Want to propose any other solutions?
The Council ought to know by now where the “hotspots” are for needles and be checking them on a regular basis, not waiting for the public to do their jobs for them.November 14, 2017 at 9:59 pm in reply to: Penycae Community Centre – Difficult Decisions Lie #140457
Just a note: Had a clarification on this from Wrexham Council, who said the consultation is in relation to the centre on Hall Street in Penycae.
Thanks for the clarification Darryl, this is very much what everyone in the community suspected. Which begs the question how can the consultation document have been allowed to contain a statement which was a blatant lie? If they are lying about this, what else have they been dishonest about?
Thing is, I think I voted “agree” with that proposal in the consultation exercise – selling disused buildings seems a no brainer. I’m sure others will have done the same. Now they will be able to put a tick next to that proposal – “has public support”November 12, 2017 at 12:46 pm in reply to: Penycae Community Centre – Difficult Decisions Lie #140339
I should also have said…if it is the Community Centre where the playgroup is held then the Council should absolutely be held to account if they are lying in the consultation document, in fact I’d go so far as to say that the consultation would need to be restarted.
