North Wales Police are urging residents and local businesses to protect themselves against thieves after a number of reported incidents of theft of Trailers and Caravans from various locations within the Wrexham area.  Your local Neighbourhood Policing team are encouraging residents to consider the following crime prevention advice to protect their property:

Trust for Holt Castle? Print
Tuesday, 16 September 2014 07:57

Wrexham Council will have to outsource the running of a raft of historic sites and libraries to save money, according to a new report.

Community centres and historical sites currently run by Wrexham Council could be passed on to the ownership of trusts, volunteers or non-profit organisations as the council battles with savings targets of upwards of £11million for the next financial year.  And the county’s libraries are also recommended to be passed on to a culture trust – either a new non-profit group or an existing trust.

Wrexham Museum, Holt Castle, Bersham Colliery and the Minera lead mines are among the landmark attractions which could leave council hands, along with 10 libraries throughout the county and four community resource centres.

Holt Village Paper Skip - Update Print
Friday, 12 September 2014 15:18

Despite our efforts in getting the skip relocated to the car park last year, Palm Recycling are no longer paying us anything for collected paper, owing to depressed recycle paper prices.

So, since there is no longer any benefit towards village organisations, Holt Community Council have therefore decided, reluctantly, to have the skip permanently removed and this has now taken place.

Many thanks to all those of you who have contributed over the years; in future you will have to recycle paper into the 'blue bags' supplied by Wrexham CBC.
