Together in Wrexham ‘Goes Live’

A new website to develop Together in Wrexham has been launched today.

Together in Wrexham is a new approach to encourage more people to take responsibility for what goes on in their communities.

The initiative is aimed at giving local people more control for improving services, relationships and the quality of life where they live. Together in Wrexham is a new concept to make communities more sustainable for the future and empower local residents to make a difference.  It can cover anything from volunteering at your local sports club, organising the annual community clean up to helping out at your child’s scout or music club.

Whilst Wrexham Council is developing the initiative, acting as a link to help the public develop new ideas or cultivate old ones, it wants the public to embrace the concept and start developing it further. A report on Together in Wrexham was discussed recently by members of the Executive Board.

Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member Communities, Partnerships and Collaboration said: “If members of the public want to find out more, get involved or tell us what is going on in their community then we would love to hear from them via social media and the new website. There are some fantastic things happening in our communities and lots of ideas just waiting to break through.

“Together in Wrexham is a great place to start and promote community-led schemes in order to reduce communities’ reliance on Council run services to ensure local people are supported to maintain a good quality of life in our communities.”
