Wrexham.com has cleared up the mystery of who removed protestors ribbons yesterday, and a banner on Saturday.

This morning after a ‘media brief’ on unrelated items, Wrexham.com highlighted that our query from 24 hours earlier was unanswered – asking if it was Wrexham Council who had removed the protestor ribbons and old school ties.

The response was swift from Council Leader Mark Pritchard who said it was in fact Wrexham Council who had removed them. Wrexham Council’s Chief Executive Helen Paterson added ‘it is our property’, perhaps signalling a wider zero tolerance to banners and associated miscellanea that is attached or placed on Council property.

A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “Wrexham Council can confirm that it did remove the ribbons and ties from its property.”

Due to a ‘call in’ of the decision to demolish the Groves building a meeting of a Council scrutiny committee will take place tomorrow at 2.30pm at the Guildhall, where Councillors could vote to recommend that the Executive Board reconsider its decision.
