    I agree with wxmbda – I had to attend the Maelor A & E dept early last week and could not fault the nursing and admin team there, they were excellent! I was met at the door and had temperature taken and asked to use hand sanitizer and wear my mask whilst inside, and to go check in at Reception and that I would be Triaged. Over to Reception and the lady was excellent and efficient, but the Hand Sanitizer container was empty, just standing giving my details and a member of the public is standing about a metre behind me, until I asked them to move back! Sat down to wait for Triage and noticed that although it was reasonably quiet, people were sitting close to each other in seats identified to leave clear. Called into the Triage office and again no hand sanitizer in the container inside the office, on the way back out of the office met two people (looked possibly mother and son) walking together down the corridor with no masks on, straight to the exit, turned around and walked back without masks, they may have conditions that mean that they can’t use masks but maybe? Go back and sit down and spot a woman on the phone for about 5 mins with her mask under her chin! My view is that the nursing staff need better support from the support teams and the management, but without doubt the public need to practice what they are being told, wear masks and sanitize and keep distanced, why is it so damn difficult, and if they can’t they need to be asked to leave!

    Earlier this summer the grass around our estate was heavily overgrown on all of the amenity areas, I recall this was the same in many areas of Wrexham. I think the council reasoning was that as the grass/ground was so wet it would make a mess of the area if cut. Question is are the people who normally do this work employed by the council on a permanent contract? If so what work were they allocated if they were not cutting grass?

    Near enough all companies nationally have lost some workers over the past years due to the recession, have there been the same level of staff cutbacks in the council? If the level of services has decreased in the borough surely the persons who planned, procured, managed and carried out these services will have less work to complete, so what are they doing?
    Controversial I know but something that I am keen to understand.

    The lowering of the speed limit from the national limit is happening in many places now around the country, I noticed a few council workers putting up 50mph signs on the lane from Ruthin Road across to Bersham, not sure why they are reducing it from the national limit, have there been any serious accidents down there?
