Welsh Blood Service


Recently had this email from the Welsh Blood Service pointing out that they will soon be holding sessions at Rossett Hall

Good Morning,

 I work for the Welsh Blood Service (recently moving over from NHS Blood and Transplant) and I have noticed that on your website (http://www.rossett.org.uk/infusions/diary_panel/diary.php) there is a link to the National Blood Service. Donors who currently live in Rossett and would like to donate in an English venue e.g. Chester are still welcome to do so, however, we are soon to be holding sessions in Rossett (at Rossett Hall). The first one being next Monday (13th June).

 I wondered whether you could also add a quick link to the Welsh Blood Service website (www.welsh-blood.org.uk) so that anyone wanting to donate in Rossett itself can check the upcoming dates? From here, anyone wishing to enrol or make an appointment can do so by completing the online form.

Also, would it be ok for me to regularly send through our local Rossett dates to be advertised on the website?

 If there is any other sites you are aware of or contacts that you have I would be extremely grateful to find out so I can promote the new session further.

 I look forward to hearing from you.

 Many Thanks,


 Tracey D’Allestro

WCBC Local Development Plan


Just lifted this from the Community Council Facebook Page (I've added the bold italic type)

Wrexham County Borough Council is currently consulting on its Local Development Plan which sets out plans for the County through until 2038 including proposed developments for housing. Several locations in Rossett have been identifiied as candidate development sites for additional housing including Lavister Golf Course, land bordering Trevalyn Way, Harwoods Lane and Rossett Road and land behind the Golden Lion. Consultation closes on the 31st March, Rossett Community Council have arranged an open public meeting to discuss the proposals on Thursday 24th March, 7pm at the Village Hall, Station Road. This is your opportunity to give your views on the proposals within the LDP that could have a profound effect on your village. Please make every effort to attend.

As per the previous News Item its not just the old Golf Course!

Development on Former Golf Course


Nigel Bruce has put an entry into the Diary about a meeting on 24th March in the Village Hall, Station Road at 7pm

For further information, Nigel can be contacted on 01244570552 Email: nigel@njbruce.co.uk

Details are:

The owners of the former golf club on Chester Road are proposing a development of houses on some 9.39 acres. Several residents who live in the locality are opposed to the scheme and a meeting has been arranged on Thursday 24th March to discuss the proposals and what the implications might be should the proposal, which would appear to have the support of Wrexham CBC planners, be successful.
The meeting commences at 7.00pm and is in the Rossett Village Hall, Station Road.
