An updated report from Provident titled ‘Unbroken Britain’ has disclosed the safest communities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  

 

As part of its biannual report Provident has surveyed 2,830 Brits to find out how welcoming, friendly, polite, safe and happy residents in each city of the UK feel their community is at present, compared to that of 6, 12 and 18 months ago. 

 

The biggest change is Birmingham who were deemed as the 6th most welcoming city 6 months ago but have now fallen 11% meaning they are now the most unwelcoming city in the UK! Sheffield is now the 7th happiest city moving from the bottom of the table 6 months ago.

Speaking about the survey data, Joe Bickerton, Destination Manager at Wrexham County Borough Council said;

"What a great piece of news for Wrexham!  Although the sample size for the UK was relatively small, Wrexham has beaten off competition from residents in major towns and cities across the UK to take first place, so there's been a real feel-good factor on social media today.  Added to this, we learnt from the town centre team yesterday that footfall in the town continues to remain high - so we're doing all we can to ensure that the buzz about Wrexham - and the wider County continues for the future prosperity of all those who live & work here!"
