Precisely what I was trying to get across Matt. If people in Penycae can do it, why not town schools where the conditions are nowhere near as bad?
Some of those people who ‘offload’ their children, as you call it Benjamin, are nurses, doctors, care workers & other people with responsible jobs including teachers. People who struggle to get out of work at short notice.
Whilst I understand schools higher up in Coedpoeth, Bwlchgwyn, Broughton etc., I couldn’t believe the number of schools in a 2-3 mile radius of Wrexham town centre that closed at lunch time on Friday. Do all teaching staff live in the mountains?
Whilst I see what you are saying jimbow, not all County Councillors are employed elsewhere. Only a large multinational company could afford to pay someone to take so much time off to attend meetings.
I have been down to Nant Mill today & I was saddened to see that the visitor centre may only be open at weekends next summer. There were people knocking on the door when I passed. Could be that they wanted to use the toilets which were locked. There was a good number of people around mostly dog walkers.November 15, 2017 at 6:17 pm in reply to: Penycae Community Centre – Difficult Decisions Lie #140509
I don’t think that we are apathetic with regards to this problem. I have not seen any discarded needles but if I did then I would not rest until I found someone to report it to & would check that collection has also been made. I would have thought that the obvious place to start looking would be Streetscene. With regards to needle exchange, since I personally do not have, or want to have, any connection with the drug taking fraternity, I have not taken the trouble to find our where needles can be exchanged.
I read that Groundwork Trust opened the Lead Mines at weekends during the summer months. Kings Mills isn’t going anywhere. It was renovated & my understanding is that it could be opened up for parties at mutually convenient times. I might be wrong. Nant Mill is open in the summer. Bersham Ironworks is opened by volunteers at certain times of the year. I went on a visit last year & thoroughly enjoyed it. Bersham Colliery is opened by volunteers in the summer. Erdigg & Chirk Castle also have many volunteers on board. Perhaps if people had to pay, they would value our heritage more. Everyone is upset about Bersham Heritage Centre but again if financial restraints lift, the building is still there it could be reopened at some time. Money is the root of all evil as the saying goes but give me parks & open spaces & our heritage every time over dull buildings that will close in 30 years if they last that long.
Walk along the Clwydog Trail to see much of our heritage. You might then realise where Wrexham went wrong. The building works along the trail show what made Wrexham. Buildings like Minera Lead Mines & King Mill will outlive the modern rubbish that is not fit for purpose after 30 years.
Whilst not agreeing about the reporting of needle finds, Bubble does have a point about a needle exchange. There must be a reason why this is not done.
