    Yes at a cost of 3 pound per day. Most time I have ever been there is about2 hours. But I won’t pay that to park in the future so just won’t go.

    I think this is a very good question. Why are some of these national companies leaving Wrexham yet staying open in other areas. Who is asking these questions of these companies? I guess it has to do with sales etc. not being good enough for that particular store but then that begs the question how these stores survive in other towns. Do more people go there than Wrexham? I read an article today that the Henblas street area could become the heart of Wrexham with cafes and restaurants. In my opinion, that is what Eagles Meadow should have been, and left the major stores which are now down there in out town centre.

    I have no problem in recycling but now we sometimes have three lorries a week coming up the street. One for the blue bag, one for the cans and bottles and another for the green or black bin. So the cost is already high and now more cost by providing new bins of it goes ahead. Ridiculous. But we have even seen the collectors emptying the blue bags into the black bins so a waste of time recycling it they carry on doing that.

    But the reality is the road was probably not that bad. They removed the surface well over a week ago and then just left it. Similarly on the Summerhill road just before Pendine Park, they closed the road, removed the surface and left it. But thankfully they “re-opened” the now ramped, bumpy road. I cannot understand why the re-surfacing cannot be done the day after the top is removed. But I agree with the original posting with regards to buses and thanks to GHA there are some buses passing through Pendine and Glascoed Park. But as for Arriva all they have done is destroy more of the road sides along Griffiths Lane as they trundle their buses up and down there but of course not picking one passenger up as there are no bus stops there.

    If it had been after 12pm you could have parked for free at the Proples Market or Crescent Road car parks.

    This may be true if you can get in them Last time I tried they were both full. Plus I believe the council want to change this time to something like 2 or 3 in the afternoon before it becomes free!

    It’s an excellent idea that has been discussed on these forums for years now yet council/vinci don’t seem to listen. An example of traders losing business would be, a couple of weeks ago my daughter was going to a birthday party in the bowling alley and meal after in Frankie+Bennys Eagles Meadow. Because parking in EM is so expensive i parked on the road outside Halfords, took her across dropped her off then did the same when i picked her up. If there had been an hours free parking or refunded parking if i used one of the shops i would have had a wander round EM shops. This would have resulted in me doing a spot of Christmas shopping, then realising it wasn’t long till i picked my daughter up would have grabbed a drink somewhere. As it was i got in and out with a cursory glance through the 02 window.

    This is also a good idea. I had the misfortune recently at parking in Eagles Meadow but never again. The costs there are disgusting and you cannot even buy a one hour ticket. That was the last time I will park there unless they change the pricing structure. But neither do I agree with Wrexham council putting there prices up. The stores in that area such as Halfords, Matalan etc. which have car parks could make money by a small charge which would be refunded if buying something from the store. If no purchase you would just pay the 50p for an hour or whatever as long as it was reasonable.

    Don’t know who sells them but easy to make apparently. This from a web site I found:

    I love amaretti biscuits, they are one of my favourite indulgences. I buy a tin of these every Christmas as a treat and have often wondered how they are made. I came across a recipe a little while ago and was surprised to find out how simple they are to make and they’re naturally gluten free.

    180g Ground almonds
    120g Caster sugar
    1/2tsp Almond extract
    1 pinch of salt
    2 Egg whites
    1 tbsp Honey
    A handful Flaked almonds
    Icing sugar
    From here Gluten Free Recipe for Amaretti Biscuits
