An explorer walked into a clearing and was surprised to see a pigmy standing beside a huge dead elephant. “Did you kill that?” he asked. The pigmy answered: “Yes”. “How could a little bloke like you kill something as huge as that?”
“I killed it with my club” replied the pigmy.
“That’s amazing,” said the explorer. “How big’s your club?”
The pigmy replied: “There’s about 150 of us”
Black Friday looming too, yet another Yankee import they should have kept to themselves.
There are parts of Wrexham, specially around Acton that are terrible to drive through. But, what they’re doing in the town centre beats all. The paving they are putting down looks damn awful already. If they’d simply tarmacked Regent street, Hope street, Henblas street and Queen street with the same tarmac as High street it would have taken half the time and half the cost and looked a sight better than it looks now. Who in their right mind ever decided on this deserves to be drawn and quartered for the waste of money and time and loss of revenue to all the businesses in town.
Reading about the road works in the town centre is like reading a fairy story book. First stage of Hope street, Queens street and High street finished? The town is a complete mess and nowhere near finished. Money wasted because
none of this work will bring businesses or shoppers into town.
Below is a snippet of the Wrexham news article.
They’re just the first part of a number of works we’ve got planned for the town centre, with £420,000 in investment planned to improve paving and street furniture in the heart of the town.
A lot of the first stage of works – which covers Queen Street, Hope Street and the High Street – has been finished.October 11, 2018 at 3:10 pm in reply to: Household Waste being put into, and by public bins. #157215
It hasn’t helped moving the recycling centre out of town on the trading estate. Not everyone has got a car to go that far.
This must be some sort of a joke. Over the past several months businesses in the town centre have suffered big losses due to the road works. If they think this will improve footfall and bring businesses back into town they are very mistaken and living in cloud cuckoo land. It didn’t need doing, but maybe tarmac like in High street and it would have been finished in weeks not months. The bird droppings and vomit already on the new pavement slabs speak for itself.
I see this every time I go to Tesco Simon. People parking and walking into town. I often wonder when I see the car park quite full where are the people inside Tesco. It always appears that there might be 100 cars parked and about 20 inside the store.
You say High Street is dead, so true. But so is Eagles Meadow. Not many units will remain open in the coming months.
It would have been far better to have made an indoor shopping centre actually in the town centre with multi storey car park on the periphery. Town planners over the past twenty years years have been atrocious and have no idea
of what our town needs. City status???? Someone’s having a joke.
The town is a damn mess. If it’s not homeless harassing you for money or cigarettes it’s trying to dodge cranes and diggers. Monday, a couple visiting from Corwen sat in Nero’s before heading home saying what a dump the town was and in future they would shop elsewhere. They had been sitting outside the lady told me and was asked by a woman for a cigarette, when they said they didn’t smoke the woman let fly with: You F…G snobs, who the F..k do you think you are. It’s my home town but I admit I feel ashamed at the way it is right now.
Thanks but it’s a Ford.
