The Mayor welcomed to the meeting three visitors from Wrexham’s twin district Märkischer Kreis in Germany who were all currently studying for their bachelor of law qualifications and were being hosted for three weeks by this Council.  He advised that they would be exploring the similarities and differences between the provision of Local Government services in Germany and Wales. 

 

The Mayor was pleased to announce that tickets for his charity dinner dance at the Ramada Plaza on 6th October were selling well.  He reminded Members and Officers that there were still a few tickets available, priced at £35.00 each and that these could be purchased from the Civic Office.

 

The Mayor made reference to the recent RWF comrades reunion that took place on 2 September and stated that he had been delighted to attend and meet so many of the veterans.  He stated that the act of remembrance at the RWF memorial was a poignant reminder of those who had lost their lives serving with the Royal Welch Fusiliers.  .

 

The Mayor informed those present that he and other Members had been in attendance for the recent annual service to commemorate the anniversary of the Gresford colliery disaster.  He stated that it had been gratifying to see this important local event so well attended and it had been an honour to meet some of those whose family members were directly affected by the disaster.

 

Finally, the Mayor made reference to the fact that this was the last full Council meeting for the Chief Executive, Dr Helen Paterson, who would be leaving later this year to take up a new position as Chief Executive of Walsall Council.  The Mayor and Group Leaders paid tribute to Dr Paterson, thanking her for her dedicated service over the past 6 years and, in particular, referring to her strong guidance and leadership during some very financially challenging times.   They wished her all the best for the future.
