    Derek Fisher, It was Not Plaid Cymru who instigated the saving of the former Groves and Grove Park Girls Grammar School. Rather it was a group of people who were and are concerned at the disappearing heritage of Wrexham and area. That group of people are now known as SOH or Save OUR Heritage. They have many many supporters in the Wrexham area. They are people who know more than a little about History, Architecture, and Worth, unlike some folk. As for the Listing… I put the request in for the Building to be Listed on their behalf. I too know more than a little about the history of Wrexham, the Worth of Buildings and especially in this case, the history, heritage, architectural worth, and past individuals involved in the building, the teaching and the actual construction of the School. I could say more, but do not intend writing a book here, nor will I get into fractious arguements with those who have no knowledge of the historic worth, and the architectural worth of that building.

    The figure of £1.1 million spent since 2015 is a lie .. a total lie. As for Asbestos, do you realise that before a building can be demolished any asbestos has to be removed from it. That, is LAW. This present arguement is a futile attempt by a Council Exec board who are not worth their salt.

    Well said Matt. A good summing up of the wretched state of Wrexham Town, and the Council, including Officers.

    The Speaking Truth. I wonder how much truth you speak. It is obvious, and has been for sometime, that the people of Wrexham, Do believe lies and propoganda. Why else do they vote in the councillors on the so called Executive Board time and again. Because the people of wrexham ARE gullible or have given up.

    It could be something that should be welcomed. It may prevent
    Supermarkets using alcohol as ‘loss leaders’ (why not offer cheaper
    food), and also may reduce domestic abuse, where the guy gets pissed
    at home and bullies the wife. If he gets stroppy in the pub, he soon
    gets answered.

    I think it could be a good move all round.

    The Cabinet System was indeed by Tony Blair, but what we have here is NOT the Cabinet System, but a mockery of the Real Cabinet System. The Cabinet System as used in the British Government is as follows:

    The Cabinet decides to introduce a new Law, Procedure or Action.

    This new Law, Procedure or Action action is then sent to the
    House of Lords for examination and debate.
    If the House of Lords vote on the Law, Procedure or Action and
    vote in favour. Then:

    It goes before the Whole of Parliament to be voted on by Our Representatives, the MPs.

    If the New Law, Procedure or Action is voted out by the House of Lords, it is then sent
    back to the Cabinet for further debate and possibly tossed in the bin.

    At all times, the Full Parliament are involved in the process, unlike what we have in Wrexham.
    Where often the full council does Not get to vote and so are rendered without power, meaning that
    most of Wrexham Electorate have no power.

    The main problem surely lies in the earlier decision to protect this slum as a listed building, at one of the busiest and most visible approaches to the town. Had the place been demolished months ago, then work may now be well on the way to building new schools. How many of the pressure group opposing the demolition actually pay Council tax in Wrexham and therefore share the ongoing costs of maintaining and policing this site ?

    Number 1. It is NOT a slum, you are a troll.
    Number 2. All members of the group that worked to save the beautiful building which is THE GROVES; a building with a long heritage; DO pay Council tax. You are a troll.

    We have a brilliant group of artists and designers in Coleg Cambria and Glyndwr why not use our own home grown talent and give them a financial prize towards their studies.

    Excellent suggestion. It would produce good results too, from an enthusiastic group of creatives.

    It may be time for ‘boots on streets’. Take democracy back. Unrest throughout the area will force change. Start by speaking with your own ‘elected’ member, or was that member ‘shoehorned’ in. Call them to account personally, rather than as a ‘council’ or ‘group’. Time for Action other than hoping that the council and its ‘officers’ will give us the change we want and that is needed. Time to call individuals to account.
