    Perhaps the fate of the Broughton store will put more people the way of our town centre store. However, we can make the difference by shopping at BHS. It will only be safe if it is profitable, (no matter where the info comes from!)

    I should also add, that even if in the unlikely event ALL the jobs go to people outside Wrexham, Those moving into the town will need somewhere to live, thus bolstering property prices, which are at the moment, low.

    On balance, I can only agree with Mrs Crewe. The jobs and opportunities the prison will provide may not be the sort of jobs we are used to in Wrexham, such as manufacturing, but jobs they are still the same. There are plenty of people and firms in Wrexham who can fulfil those needs even measures against the “value for money” criteria JaneJ mentions. Even if, the only people to prosper were the taxi drivers at the railway station, it means more people are using the railway, thus safeguarding services for the rest of us.

    Having read the BBC article, bearing in mind Leighton Andrews has rejected the mergers that have been proposed, this quote struck me as significant “First Minister Carwyn Jones has called for assembly party leaders to meet to agree a new map for local government.” Now that’s what I call democracy in action – not!

    I used the word “akin” as defined by the Oxford English dictionary “of similar character”. Yes I am aware that the current Denbighshire Council formed part of the old Clwyd Council.

    Whilst “The move of the main Police and custody suite will only effect a very small number of the public” my point was made to indicate the loss of employment that moves LIKE these will have in Wrexham further reducing the footfall in town.

    Those on the wrong side of the law literally and figuratively, did not form part of my concerns!!!

    Yes, the Virgin service is still advertised on their website. Depart Wrexham 07.00 depart Euston 18.10(direct service). Journey time about two and a half hours.

    I so agree with you ddraig. We still have lots of the top retailers in town, M&S, Debenhams, Next and BHS as well as a host of smaller and local stores, so lets use them. I actually get Christmas gift ideas as I walk around the shops, which for me makes Christmas shopping easier. I actually like to see what I’m buying, so tend not to shop online.

    I also look for unusual gifts which I can find in the markets in town, like the coffee and tea shop on High St or the lady who sells jams and chutney in the Butchers Market. Last Christmas a friend mentioned a long lost book he wanted to read again, I found a second hand copy in Wrexham and he was delighted. Much more fun than Amazon!!!

    As an after thought, look at the wood outside Eagles Meadow, that’s not wearing well either!
