“The tour series is hosted in cities. It’s specifically targeted towards places like Manchester and Derby. We are attracting events that would only come to cities. We are capable of attracting events that have a city level of significance and I think that’s one of the advantages of gaining city status.”
So what happened in 2015 when Wrexham, a town, hosted the Tour of Britain. Did the organisers make a massive mistake? Or really did they not care whether Wrexham was calling itself a town or a city.
Even if that article is getting the Tour of Britain and some possible future bid to host a stage of the Tour Series mixed up, take a look at who has hosted the Tour Series in the past. The vast majority of hosts have been towns not cities. In 2022 there are 2 ciies and 5 towns hosting it. What has Bancroft been taking?
In the next few years are we going to get bombarded by the council with fake news that every event that comes to Wrexham could only possibly happen because of the city status?
This is just another example of Wrexham Councils creative narrative writing – the Council have mastered the art of creative writing with many if their Council reports having very selective information that never tells the whole story. Look at the Nine Acre – only a few months after they wanted to build on the site they lost that and now it is to become the QE11 field- spin at it’s very worst.
Er, why QE11 field? It is known as the nine acre and has been for many years. Pointless politics trying to buy the sympathy vote.
