There must have been a fate genie working in Featherstone over the last 24 hours or the Labour Party who doesn’t read this forum panicked. Out of the blue less than 24 hours after a forum post Yorkshire Water are calling and asking questions. Apparently they are not happy that the passed planning application for the Pop Factory site now rests with them to cure any problems. And problems there are! Roll Eyes

Fate is a funny old thing. With no forward planning Castleford swimming pool is almost ready to be demolished resulting in the nearest pool to Castleford being the next destination. One guess which Pool?  Yep the already overcrowded (due to wrong build) Featherstone pool. And it’s going to get worse very quick. Looks like the Labour party are keeping to their word to those in Featherstone who voted against them over a Baths. Roll Eyes

The meeting was opened for members of the public to address the Council on matters relevant to its business. Mr W Field and Mr A Thompson of 182 and 184 Priory Road spoke to express their concern that the Beck to the rear of their property and Aldi’s was full of rubbish. Flood water was also coming off the Aldi site which was resulting in their gardens being affected with a rise in water levels.

Have to say I told you so as well as all the WMDC departments that commented on the 1st planning application that then disappeared for 10 days and re-appeared without the concerned reports after investigation of inevitable flooding to the Priory Road estate.
Yorkshire Water as usual have copped for the flack and have been investigating for the last month. There is no cure unless the original correct plan is now built. Roll Eyes

The Mayor and Deputy Mayor left the meeting and Councillor Tennant was elected to take this agenda item.
Members were asked to consider an increase in the Mayor’s allowance to £1,500 in order that the Mayor receives £1,000, as at present and the Deputy Mayor receives £500 to assist with their costs for each Civic year when deputising for the Mayor. It was proposed by Councillor Wright and seconded by Councillor Taylor and it was
RESOLVED: That the Mayors allowance is increased to £1,500 of which £500 is given to the Deputy Mayor each year.

An interesting increase backed by interesting people. No mention of the expense account. Shame that the good people of Featherstone who get of their bum to apply for grants now can only have £500 and not £1000.  Roll Eyes

c) Any other planning matters – BT has advised of the removal of two red telephone boxes in Featherstone – there were no objections raised at the meeting.

Its a shame that Featherstone town cllrs do not see the potential that other towns have shown. B.T. will sell for a few pounds any phone box like this to any council. Many councils have taken this up as a piece of English history and have applied for a small grant to have phone boxes restored and installed at schools and even back on the streets. There must not be a lot left of the £3 million plus of Featherstone's regeneration money after paying for the Pontefract swimming pool.

Excuse the short video as there is an irony. One of many places in Featherstone you would not wish to steel from is this one. To cut a story short these 3 white males with local accents aged early to mid twenties in a transit van sign written roofing on 3 sides were shown the error of their ways. This would have been left at that. However fate then came along. Take a note of the metal bucket taken out of the van which was eventually left with other items after error training by the van driving off at high speed spilling its load.
A couple of hours later a lovely 80 plus year old man arrived at a local shop nearby to buy a tin bucket. He had got wrapped up and obtained some cash because someone had been in his garden on Crossley Street nearby and stolen both his new tin buckets. The poor old guy was stressed because all he had was his coal fire and the bucket was part of his routine. His language was Featherstone sharp. By good luck staff who had seen the earlier incident and bucket asked the old guy to identify his bucket. What were the chances that he could identify one bucket. Yes it was his. It appears that Featherstone gardens have been robbed all morning. If you are a victim please add this to your report. The police are aware

Looks like is scrap man thief Wednesday for Featherstone with a twist. Last weeks scrap men were replaced this week with another trio following in the steps of last weeks rekey of Featherstone. This time the theory was to park the van out of the way with a driver while 2 white males checked out possible good spots found the week before. The white male pictured is about 5ft and thin aged about 30. This one is like a whippet shooting about and looking while his mate pretends to look else where but actually is acting as a look out. A little bit of an accent with this male (traveller). Again taught not to trespass. The irony was before this picture they had a good look around Labour Cllr Dicks house. Perhaps they should have been left! Undecided

"The Christmas decoration and grave wreath thief has almost been found. Someone called Steady is trying to sell the stolen stuff but is claiming it’s his skinny girlfriend usually in leggings who is robbing the graves. Featherstone is now looking for full names and address to pass to the victims who are queuing up for their 10 bobs worth".

Sadly the crime wave involving Steady and his girlfriend continues regardless of some victims having their 10 bob. Such is the habit this pair have to feed. If you were looking for a steak in Onestop yesterday or sausage and bacon today you would be right in thinking there was no stock. One guess who stole it?

Steady appears to have a death wish with his disregard to his victims. This picture was taken today by a victim catching Steady climbing over his 7ft brick garden wall in to his garden with an excuse Steady was looking for a short cut to Lidle. 7ft victim vs 8 stone smackhead!

Just keep shaking your head, it’s all you can do living in Labour Featherstone. Here is an unusual one. At 7.45pm on Friday night a road sweeper and trailer arrived at the corner of Fulton’s and Betfred. For the next hour the most unusual road repair began. Around both corners the tarmac was cut at about 2ft from the curb. A scrape was then made of the surface. Then tarmac was shovelled on to the un-compacted surface and then was finally rolled by using the wheels of the road sweeper and not a road roller. The finished job is an uneven surface lower than the original and has not been sealed at the joint with tar. The surface is all ready breaking up as it sticks to vehicle tyres. The big dint in the path caused by the JCB renovating the path is still there for all to fall in.
The road was better before?

Police were called to Station Lane on Friday around 9pm after reports of an assault. Apparently the victim is the person responsible for a number of break-ins recently. Ironic that recently the police turn up faster to help the criminal and not the victim.
The sooner the UK wakes up to the fact that we now have to defend ourselves perhaps some organisation can begin.

Well things haven't quietened down in the hot house on Fearnley Street. Its so busy its worth just stopping by. Today alone stolen goods from shops in Featherstone have been streaming in and out the back door. The poor residents are living in fear whilst good Samaritans have saved a few peoples bacon. Roll Eyes

Over a year since residents and business began complaining about the thief and other events such as flashing at kids on Fearnly Street and the daily day and night harassment to neighbors including a growing pile of rubbish that WMDC have confirm will be dealt with in a “reasonable amount of time”, now defined as one year. At last this week an interesting result! The house and next door is a charity owned house. After the charity delivered a brand new cooker to the house, 20 minutes later the cooker was sold. This resulted in the tenants being evicted and the locks changed on Friday afternoon. This brought to light just how active the house was. From 1pm on Friday there were groups of smack heads walking about the Lane, lost. The funniest of all was the apparent prostitution that came to light. The new temporary location was behind Labour party member Bill Mulroes charity shop with cars driving around the backs and sexually activity seen by at least 2 people in the passage way.
About 6pm the female resident arrived back at the house and was arrested by police investigating previous events. Within an hour of being released this morning at 9am the female brought a hammer and attempted to smash her way in the front and back door. She was again
