    Born Acorn, please don’t let facts get in the way of a good fantasy! After I posted, I realised this might be about the Halton Curve and trains to Liverpool via Parkway station, but if the Welsh Assembly Government intend to allocate battery / electric trains on the Wrexham – Bidston line, then they could operate on the sub-Liverpool stretch.

    From Wikipedia “Welsh Economy Secretary, Ken Skates, stated that the Welsh government were in an advanced stage of talks with Merseytravel about running a direct service from Wrexham to Liverpool”.

    Lets get writing to Mr Skates!!!!

    Born Acorn writes: Now it appears Arriva stopped ordering spares months ago, which is something I’d read elsewhere a couple of days ago.
    Didn’t know they took the wheel lathes with them though. That would paralyse the repairing of “square wheels” caused by slippery rails.

    If this is true, and I don’t know either way, it makes the franchise business even more of a fiasco. What happened to due diligence, or even a note on a fag packet.

    Give the Wrexham-Bidston line to Mersey Rail so we can have trains running directly into Liverpool.

    Only in Wrexham could a positive development like this be met with scepticism and ire.

    Bins is bins. Football museum is football museum.

    Different things, different budget, different funding!

    in reply to: Home Bargains to close on Boxing Day #159110

    I agree Maureen Gray. It has been custom and practice in the Ham household to hold off buying certain products in case the recipient doesn’t call. Up until now it has been convenient to nip out to Home Bargains to buy a 4 pack of Snowball drinks if there is a sighting of Auntie Honey Rose on Boxing Day (well you always have a Honey rose Ham at Christmas right?). If she doesn’t show, we’ve wasted nowt. If however they shut Home Bargains on Boxing Day, a decision will have to be made to buy on Christmas Eve or the poor old soul will have to put up with the dregs of a bottle of S K Williams sherry I bought in 1979.

    I warn you all now, this is a dangerous prescient, next, Next will decide to close on Boxing Day, and that way civil disobedience will break out as people wander the streets from 5am on St Stephen’s Day looking for a jumper they so desperately need.

    However, Wrexham will be safe because most of the zombie’s will drive to Broughton to avoid paying for parking in Wrexham.

    Well, it looks like the Banks filibuster is unravelling and vindicates Ian Lucas stance in the sub committee.

    So, negative publicity about drug/substance abuse round town upsets people, and so does positive (PR or actual) reporting about a feature of our town.

    “…perhaps it is time to consider Stagecoach who are already operating in Chester and are already running a bus service into Wrexham via Farndon”.
    No, you don’t want the Brian Souter company anywhere near!

    Matt says “This is what I love about the diverse views of the town. In the other thread I’m commenting on someone is lamenting the lack of shops in town and now in this one it’s about the last thing that town needs.”
    I should have written more clearly. My intention was to suggest that the town needs to fill the empty TC shops rather than build new ones.

    I agree, Lidl will have done their homework and yes Alunh, I agree with your second paragraph!
