Good to see funding agreed . Now the question is, who thought it was a good idea to cut it in the first place and risk the lose of the service in Wrexham ?
The shop has closed in the Maelor Hospital and no donations to the hospital for some time!
B and M are doing well on the Central Retail Park , but they have moved to get the advantage of FREE parking. Parking charges are very important in this difficult trading environment and the Council need to revisit their tariffs and come up with some attractive offers …..Free Fridays, Free Early Bird Shopping, Free After Three, are just a few ideas. Waiting until December for some free parking may well be too late !
Hope all the Executive Board read the article about CAB in the news section here on Wrexham.com. The Council decided to spend money on a new frontage for the Guildhall (at what cost?) rather than keep a service which benefits many many people in the town. Their priorities are at odds with the public.
Agree about location , no passing trade and no through road!
The decision has been referred back to the Executive Board , hope they all visit CAB to get a better understanding of what the town would lose if they close. A case of CAB will not be fully appreciated until it’s gone!
There was an excellent programme on TV this week showing how the Royal Academy in London works. Apparently in the early 1970’s it was so impoverished it sold some valuable art works, it doesn’t receive any government finance. It has been saved mainly by the introduction of “Friends of the Royal Academy” they have 100,000 members who pay £100 per year. Now that’s London prices but perhaps a similar set up “Friends of Ty Pawb” could be formed.
A group of about a dozen hanging about outside Richmond House yesterday, some standing around the traffic lights, intimidating for pedestrians. Some seemed unaware of their surroundings , others were sitting on the floor smoking, a mixed group of men and women. Do they live in Richmond House and are turned out during the day or are they people just using the site as a gathering point ?
Attract one company like that and others would follow , good to see some aspiration for the area. Even if it went on the Chester Business Park , there would be job opportunities for local people.
Looks like another Council , Denbighshire, may not renew their contract with Kingdom.
