A new shopping and entertainment hub for the centre of Wrexham is getting closer to opening its doors. Local businesses have the opportunity to call up for a trading space.
Chapter Court, a complex of shops, food outlets and entertainment, aims to rejuvenate the town centre by becoming a focal point for local commerce and leisure. The plans, inspired by London’s Camden Market, faced disruption due to a series of lockdowns but have the go-ahead to restart.
The first stage, called “Chapter One”, should be open for business by spring 2023. It will be situated in the retail units lining Hope Street, Queen Street and Rhosddu Road. The development will be operated by Carl Turner of Town Square Spaces (TownSq), the coworking and business support specialist which also runs the Wrexham Enterprise Hub on Rhosddu Road, adjoining the Chapter Court complex.
Town Square Appointment
Talking of Town Square, Wrexham, they have recently promoted Katy Hughes to Community Manager. Katy started life at Town Square two years ago when she became their Community Coordinator. During that time, she has introduced a networking group and overseen a school uniform exchange project. It was a great success.
Katy says, “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here. I love seeing the companies that use the Hub growing like beautiful butterflies! We are looking forward to hosting bigger events and a thriving partnership with the Chapter Court development project.”
Students from Coleg Cambria (CC) Yale were on hand to give hard-working health staff some much-needed respite. They provided complementary well-being treatments for clinicians, medical students, and also administrative workers in the Medical and Dental Education Department at Wrexham Maelor Hospital, including haircuts and back and scalp massages.
CC’s Hair and Beauty Commercial Manager Sarah Edwards joined the 12-strong cohort for the community event: “Our Level 2 and Level 3 Hair and Beauty learners did an amazing job. It was a fantastic day, and we were so proud to be there,” she said.
Andrea Taylor-Clutton, Medical and Dental Education Manager said: “Everyone involved worked extremely hard to make sure we received an excellent and professional relaxation experience – the feedback has been outstanding.” She added: “I would like to thank Cambria and Karen Jones, our Health and Wellbeing Coordinator, for their tremendous hard work in making the day a success.”
