Why wasn’t this all sorted out before the initial planning permission was agreed? How do we know that the developers will keep their promises with regards to the spine road & or the school?
Adam, we do have a town centre manager by the name of Isobel Watson if WCBC website is to be believed. To be successful a town should have lots of short cuts from one area to the other to join it together.
I have to say Jan that I agree about Maplin. They appear to staff their shop with people with the correct know how & interest. Perhaps Angryshopper, you were there before Christmas when the staff wouldn’t have as much time to spend per customer.
Eagles Meadow, if built where Island Green is might have made more sense. Yes, Next & Debenhams have external doors to the outside world beyond Eagles Meadow but onto what? A stream of traffic which has to be negotiated to collect your car from anywhere but the overpriced Eagles Meadow car park. When parking is limited to time, you choose to go to one place or the other. The people who design these places have no interest in keeping town centres alive. That is the difference between the Grosvenor Centre in Chester & Eagles Meadow in Wrexham. The Grosvenor Centre was built to fit in with the City. There are doors out of shops & boutiques as well as the entrances from the Centre onto the main shopping streets. They don’t need to build new precincts for Debenhams, Next etc because they got it right the first time.
The Monday Market was busy because people came in from out of town, used the reasonably priced/free car park, shopped for fresh produce & bargains, popped into town to do their posh shop & have lunch, then into Asda, to get their weekly groceries before going home. It was a once a week, all day treat.
Would they be covered if purchased with a credit card I wonder.
I don’t have a negative view of Wrexham. I hate to see it’s image destroyed by bad planning & bad behaviour. I would stand up & be counted against anyone denigrating the town. This boy aimed at the girl intending to injure & laughed. (Leader) Is that what we want in our town. The thin end of the wedge. If allowed to continue the damage will get worse.
There were no such thing as youth services where I grew up, in a village I might add, but children didn’t shoot each other, or to the best of my knowledge steal bicycles. This child was out of control. What scares the hell out of me is that if he attends school, which I doubt, it would be the same one as my grandchildren. At thirteen he is old enough to know right from wrong.
I always assumed that people working in charity shops did it voluntarily. I know that they do have new goods on display in the shops but again thought that they were donated. I admit that I have never asked the question.
I am in agreement. It wouldn’t enhance the town in any way. As with big businesses coming here advertising for staff, it sounds good to employ more people but after the initial opening the jobs are always cut to the minimum, then you are stuck with it. Why here anyway?
I am very sad about Jessops closing but to be fair the last time we were there it had changed from extremely good customer service to the mediocre. It may have been company policy changes or low morale but it was very noticeable. As wrexview states it is a tough start to the New Year.
