    There have always been people who for one reason or another don’t want to conform with everyday society. We used to call them tramps or roadsters. A few came from wealthy families & were university educated. Most would ask if they could do a small job in exchange for a cup of water or a slice of bread.
    Druggies are a different species & not one penny of my money would go to feed their habit. 100 people giving a £1 coin equals £100.

    It is pretty bad but I assume that it is a work in progress.

    Do you ?

    Just looking for pros & cons.

    Pros – could bring money into the area, would tidy up some fly tipping hot spots.

    It was exactly the same when they trialled a one way system under the bridge a couple of years ago. It caused so much mayhem added to by the imbeciles on the dual carriageway going into town. People don’t appear to know what two lanes are for. Perhaps they think that is to give buses somewhere to park when there is a match on at the Racecourse. That’s a point. What will happen on Saturday?

    I have a concern that Rhosddu Colliery Road Chapel is being considered for the less vulnerable homeless to sleep. It is not in my back yard but I am concerned for the elderly and disabled people living in the vicinity as I have an elderly relative close by. I wonder what the term less vulnerable homeless means.

    Putting up the price will encourage more theft by the druggie / alcholic community. Responsible middle aged social drinkers will be the ones to suffer from price increases. Young people on a night out with friends won’t care how much their drinks cost if they don’t have bills to pay.

    I didn’t see a major problem with children attending the school in their catchment area taken from the feeder schools. At least it was mixed ability in the schools. There are very bright children who never stand a chance the way things are. Because they come from a ‘poorer’ background should make no difference to their education. When they mixed with more affluent children it gave them something to aspire to. If school dinners were free to all there would be less of the ‘them & us’ attitude too. Children are already classified from a very early age in pre-school classes. Either all should pay or none.

    “1 simple statistical fact – Maelor School free dinners children – 4.6%. Bryn Alyn – 19.9%, Clywedog – 19.4%, Rhosnesni – 25.1%”

    As Helen says, parents are prepared to send their children to schools further afield in order to ensure a good education. The statement above also shows that those are also of the more affluent parents as they have not added to free school dinner statistics.

    This does not bode well for town schools. The children have nothing to aspire to. Caring parents who made wrong choices will continually kick themselves for doing so.

    In my opinion, it all went wrong when the word ‘SUPER’ in schools was deemed to mean excellent.
