    I love that you think I read ‘OK’ and am in my teens! I wouldn’t give ‘OK’ or any similar magazine space in my recycling bin 😂

    So let me play this…you are either
    1 Drunk. Don’t drink to excess
    2 Stoned. Don’t take drugs either
    3 High on Spice. Does black pepper count?
    4 Foreign. Born and raised here
    5 Exchanging your goods in the many pawn shops. Never been in one
    6 Eating a Greggs as you type. Think I have used this shop twice
    7 Partially sighted. Normal vision
    8 Young and naïve and think this is the norm for a town. Pmsl I wish!
    7 Drunk..oops done that one. Groundhog Day?
    8 Stuck in traffic lights on every road that is being dug up once again. Groundhog Day 2? Gas pipes need replacing …c’est la vie!
    9 Stuck in the A&E department with nothing better to do than think wow what a good town. Only ever been there twice
    10 Dodging potholes on every single bloody road into this dump of an excuse for a town. This is my new hobby!
    11 Are you 12? I was once …….
    12 perhaps you cant find the exit sign out of the idiotic waste of money of the arts hub? I found my way in and out with no navigational aids at all.

    I do love a quiz!

    Bubble, I am not saying that Wrexham is a great town but I don’t have your experience of living in other towns to compare against. What I do wonder is why you stay in Wrexham if it is the worst place you have lived in? Something must keep you here that you didn’t have anywhere else. To me it is home. Not perfect by any means but home.

    I agree that Wrexham is not what is was. Shops have closed as the way we shop has changed. It might be the forums I follow but it seems that the negativity of the town is the only thing on the increase. Maybe if we believed in the town and got off our collective backsides and did something other than gripe and complain we could change the atmosphere of the town. I don’t want to live in the past, even though I was younger then, I prefer now to then to be honest. When something happens like Ty Pawb instead of backing it the negative population seem hell bent on dragging it down. It is almost as though they will only be happy if it fails, then gloat at how clever and right they were. If the funds had been directed to Cardiff or Swansea the cry would have gone out ‘What about the North of Wales’? Well it’s here so use the blessed place and help the traders there to make a decent living.

    There is a shop down the arcade across from QD in Wrexham that might be interested. The names escapes me at the moment.

    Would you consider donating them to a chatiry shop or maybe try Gumtree?

    Have seen a few tips on social media about this issue. The solution seems to be to pour boiling water over the condensate pipe and free the ice.

    I totally agree. The Council have done a great job at keeping the main roads open and have had no issue going to work. A bit tricky making my way to the main road but I fully understand that the main roads are a priority.

    Congratulations to the Council and the Gritter crews on a job well done 👍🏻

    If the rates were lower on retail premises they might be more attractive and easier to fill by independent traders. There is little choice in Wrexham which is why so many venture to Chester or the nearby cities to shop.

    An extract from the answer I received from Asda HQ

    I have contacted the store and spoken to Shaun Leech Who is the General Store Manager of the store. He has advised me that the store has received quite a few complaints regarding the speed bump however the speed bump has been installed across all of our car parks as they are a precautionary measure to ensure our customers safety whilst visiting our stores.

    They may not have initially had complaints but that seems to have changed.
