The budget is wrong. We should cut back on waste usage & use that money for something of value & education.
Why is there so much waste? There is no need for it.
Buying fresh from green grocers, butchers & bakers using baskets & string bags would help the local economy & cut down on packaging.
Composting garden waste & using washable nappies are just a couple of other things that would help too. Many items that come in plastic are bad for you such as pop & squash.November 22, 2018 at 12:51 pm in reply to: Football Museum could take preference over bin collections. #159417
You obviously don’t attend the museum in the mornings it is overtaken by school children.
The last international football exhibition in the museum was 2 years ago.
Welsh international football began in Wrexham. One piece of history that Cardiff can’t take away from us. There again I suppose that we could always re-write the history books.
Why bother to do anything to give Wrexham people a little bit of pride? It’s much easier to moan about the bin collections. We could always go back to middens & that would save a fortune. How ever did they manage before bin collections?November 22, 2018 at 10:04 am in reply to: Football Museum could take preference over bin collections. #159408
I just wonder how many people with opinions have ever set foot in a museum much less their local one. http://www.wrexham.com/news/gold-award-and-high-praise-for-wrexham-museums-excellent-facilities-159223.htmlNovember 22, 2018 at 12:02 am in reply to: Football Museum could take preference over bin collections. #159392
Yeah, let it go to South Wales along with everything else of value. I begin to think that Wrexham deserves all the bad press that it gets. Sad.
Well that’s alright then. We will just leave everything as it is shall we? Let it all fall down. Or do you have a plan yourself to protect local heritage? What do you suggest?
When too many of HMO are added into residential areas it could possibly spoil the demographics of the area.
Presumably someone has to care for the outside of the properties, clean windows, take in parcels etc. I only have personal knowledge of one which does look rather unkempt in comparison with other properties.
So Council Watcher, are you not in agreement that the buildings should have been secured & weatherproofed. Should they have been left to fall down for lack of volunteers or staff to open them?
Have you yourself thought about volunteering to help keep these places open for public viewing? There aren’t many lead miners, iron workers, mill workers left & even coal miners & steelworkers are getting fewer by the day.
All I am trying to say is that at least they are still standing & that is mostly down to Council & volunteers.
We do still have Kings Mill, Nant Mill, Minera Lead Mines, Bersham Iron Works, Bersham School etc for future use if/when the county becomes more prosperous. If the council hadn’t taken on the care-taking role & buildings hadn’t been weather proofed, they would have deteriorated until they had to be demolished as with some privately owned buildings. Austerity has meant that some services had to be prioritised. After all we would complain our bins weren’t emptied.November 13, 2018 at 6:38 pm in reply to: Universal Credit Furthers Pressure on Local Budget #158922
Same here Dagg. Nobody ever paid me until I had done the work. The Nanny state is to blame. My father worked long hours for low pay then came home & tended his vegetable garden to feed a large family.
Jimbow, as the Mayor attended the Service of Remembrance yesterday, are you saying that the British Legion should pay him for his attendance & the 1001 charitable events that he attends, that the charities should pay for his services?
