How do you think that we should market the town then? Just give up? That would be the easiest option. It is hard to keep positive amongst so much negativity.
We have one of the highest villages in Wales and one of the largest. I won’t mention the largest Council Estate as that could be a negative. As you say there is Gresford Bells, Wrexham Steeple & Overton Yew trees. We have Wats Dyke & Offas Dyke. We have Erddig Hall & Chirk Castle. Industrial Heritage wise we have Bersham Ironworks without which James Watt might not have perfected his steam engines. We had coal, steel, iron, lead, brick & tile works aplenty. Biggest amongst the negatives are the people who make mockery of the town & county & just love to put it down.
Go on then JP. Tell us what you think should be on the signage. There will always be someone who disagrees.
I mentioned the markets & industrial heritage as well as having the oldest international football ground & the 3rd oldest football club in the WORLD but of course those are all past Wrexhamites achievements.
With your POSITIVE head on, what do you think should be on the signage to encourage people to come to Wrexham County as well as the town. Anyone can be negative it is much harder to be positive.
You may well mock. Accentuate the positive, eliminate the nagative.
Wrexham is more than just the town. It has a fantastic heritage which is ignored. Probably because we are in the north of Wales.
Quote Wikipedia – “The stadium is recognised by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest international football stadium that still hosts international matches, having hosted Wales’ first home international match in 1877, and has hosted more Wales international matches than any other ground (91). The record attendance at the ground was set in 1957, when Wrexham hosted a match against Manchester United in front of 34,445 spectators.” Unquote
Quote Wikipedia – “Based on the club’s recorded formation date of 1864, they are the oldest club in Wales and the third oldest professional football team in the world.” Unquote
It is about time that the signs were updated. Universities in towns are quite common & don’t say a thing about the town ot County Borough. I think that we should have the Racecourse football ground & team, the markets & industrial heritage on there too but this is a definite improvement.
For once Maureen Gray I agree with you. The grant system is a pain. It is probable that grants are allowed only for demolition & rebuild. The council more than likely have their hands tied. I don’t believe that WAG are at all interested in what the people of Wrexham want. Why would they? They forget that North Wales exists.
I would like to see a breakdown of those costs. It was said before how much was spent on security each year but nothing ever appeared to have done to the building nor any security seen onsite.January 10, 2018 at 7:59 am in reply to: Ty Pawb and the Waste of Our Money, a project mis-timed during Austerity & Cuts #143048
Give me the choice & I would much prefer to keep the music in our schools. Why should music be just for the privileged few? I don’t remember the arts section in the library being overrun with people.
I have to admit that many of them do not inspire me with confidence. Not that I have had a great deal to do with them. As the eyes & ears of the neighbourhood, some of them could look a little more alert.
Please note that I said ‘many’ & ‘some’.
Don’t shoot me down on this as I know little about it. I am just asking the question.
Wouldn’t it be cheaper for WCBC to increase the subsidies to a realistic level allowing small private companies to continue to give a decent service to outlying areas rather than setting up a new council run service?
Buses need to be garaged, insured, serviced, need fuel, replaced on occasion. Drivers have to be paid wages and now, paid paternity leave, holidays, pensions, sick pay etc.
Cost of overheads rise all the time but do subsidies keep up? There is something wrong when two local bus companies go out of business within such a short space of time. They provide services to less cost effective areas.
How much would it add to our council tax for said councils to have to purchase brand new buses as well as the associated costs?
I am with the bus companies on this unless someone convinces me otherwise.
