Since I raised my question with the Prime Minister at PMQs about Wrexham Council’s Levelling Up Bid which includes the redevelopment of the historic Kop Stand at the Racecourse Ground, we have been working very hard to ensure its success. I would like to take this moment to bring your attention to the petition that is successfully raising the profile of the bid and has gained over 6,000 signatures in just three days. I was thrilled to sign the petition and I will continue to promote it by working in every way possible to take this forward with No.10. To sign up, search ‘Redevelop the Racecourse’ on change.org.
Following the Local Council elections last month, I wrote to all the candidates who were elected to Wrexham Council to represent wards in my constituency. I look forward to working with them, regardless of their political persuasion, on our shared agenda to raise Wrexham and to ensure we all, within our own remits, work for the betterment of our town.
After years of severe flooding in Darland Lane, Rossett, and countless visits and conversations with worried residents and Wrexham Council, I am pleased that Wrexham Council has finally administered the flood risk alleviation scheme to address this issue. I was pleased to be able to pop down to Darland Lane this month to chat to the workmen and relieved residents but with further development proposals for the area, the situation needs to be monitored going forward.
During a busy day in Wrexham, I popped down to the Wrexham Museum with some guests. It gave an atmospheric and interactive sense of Wrexham’s history and heritage. I am so pleased that our community has such a great venue, especially as Wrexham has been shortlisted in the Culture Bid 2025.
It was great to join Sergeant Nathan Harvey, from the rural policing team, out on shift in Gwersyllt and Gresford where we visited a few hot spots for low-level crime.
Low-level crime is a blight across Wrexham that impacts us all and I am very pleased that the Queen’s Speech announced increased Government spending and strengthening the powers of the police to make the streets safer. I will continue to speak up for Wrexham residents and support the police’s work to tackle this.
Finally, alongside inspirational businesswomen from Wrexham, including Louise Wilson the owner of K9 Conservation Consultancy, I was thrilled to attend ‘Welsh Women in Business’ Event organised by Secretary of State for Wales. It was an opportunity to congratulate women, who many had started their successful businesses during lockdown, and reflect upon how small business entrepreneurs in Wales are thriving. In addition, I am pleased the Wales Office now serves Wrexham Lager.
