Wrexham based Vic Studios has won the 2017 ‘Working for Young People’ award from Wrexham Social Enterprise Network.

Vic Studios specialises in using music to build the confidence, skills and prospects of children and young adults referred to it by local charities, schools and care providers because of their social, health and educational needs. It is one of only a handful of non-profit organisations doing this in the UK.

Chair of Vic Studios, Chris Lloyd, said: “Our team puts a tremendous amount of work into ensuring that the young people referred to us enjoy their time with us and benefit in some way from our services. I dedicate this award to them. It comes hot on the heels of a decision by Thomas Howells Foundation to part fund the expansion of Vic Studios youth services in 2017 which means we can ramp up our plans to reach even more young people in 2018”.

Vic Studios rehearsal and recording facilities are also a vital part of the music scene that now contributes so much to local economy and cultural life and where brilliant local band Neck Deep took their first steps towards global success.

AVOW, TCC and Wrexham Senedd yr Ifanc will be hosting an event for Parliament Week on Thursday 16th November at Catrin Finch Centre, Mold Road, Wrexham. Those attending can take part in ‘Wxm QT’ – a Question Time type session with local Members of Parliament, Ian Lucas and Susan Elan Jones on the panel – with discussions on Brexit and what Brexit means for democracy in Wales. Participants are also welcome to submit their own questions for the event when they sign-up through Eventbrite.

The event will be looking at how community issues make their way to Parliament, addressing issues revolving around Wales, Wrexham’s representation in Westminster and if politicians understand and appreciate what is important to people in Wales. Alongside local MP’s, representation from the Youth Parliament and the Welsh Assembly, it’s likely to be a lively but informative event.

UK Parliament Week is an annual, national festival that aims to engage people with Parliament and empower them to get involved.

‘Politicians in Westminster don’t care about Wales or have a clue about what’s important here?’ is a common rhetoric, so we ask; is it true? And how can we make sure the people who are making decisions about our lives know, and act on, what’s important to us?

The evening will begin with a free buffet from 5:15pm, with the main event starting at 6pm; the evening will finish at 8pm.

A football-loving police boss has urged fans to be on their best behaviour for the first bubble-free derby match between Wrexham and Chester for years.
North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Arfon Jones campaigned for controversial travel restrictions to be lifted on the fixture which features the closest international rivalry in British club football.
The plea to the supporters from Mr Jones, a Wrexham season ticket-holder, comes ahead of the latest meeting of the old rivals at the Swansway Chester Stadium, on Wednesday evening, November 8 (7.45pm kick-off).
Football fans across the country will be watching as the all-ticket Vanarama National League derby is being televised live by BT Sport.
