Over the last 12 months since the depletion of the Police resources local crime has increased. This is not shown in Police report figures as people are now reporting crime lesser and lesser as it is not worth wasting time to be told nothing will be done. I fully understand this attitude but the fact is that if a crime continues all information is important and helpful to others. Again I understand why bother? My own only positive is to help others.
Station Lane has seen a huge increase in shop lifting from a mix of local and outside thieves. Please excuse the word local as the numbers are a very small minority. Over the years there have been many particular individuals that arrive and create a dramatic impression. By bad luck Featherstone appears to have received at least half a dozen. The most bizarre has now been so in everyone’s face for so long it is time to write this simple post as a record for those who should care.
Early this year a male and female arrived in Featherstone. After an early shop lifting spree they were soon banned from some shops. This then appeared to progress to obtaining money from a person who is registered as vulnerable and cared for by WMDC. This then led to meeting people regularly on OneStop corner. A relationship then developed with a house on Fernley Street. An interesting address as the resident is presently showing on a cctv video stealing a £1000 bike amongst other issues.
This week a gathering of registered drunks and drug users met about noon. By 3pm males had been flashing there bits to women and approaching women and being sexual face to face with alcohol breathe. As the school let out a male was pissing on the rear of OneStop and flashing to passers by including kids. Although this was reported the police did not attend until a few hours later when one of the males told a shop keeper who refused to serve him that he would be back with a gun and put it between her eyes.
No long term custardy and everyone free shortly after. Continuing the disregard for the law just after 9am this morning a white male about 30 stole an elderly ladies handbag at the corner of the vets and ran away across the precinct towards the troubled residential area. Police are presently looking in to cctv and witness’s. My own thoughts are enough is enough hence this post as a tool that the local labour party do not read. As they don’t read this website they will not have read “WMDC care”!
The kettle has boiled on this one...........................

Just keep shaking your head, no one cares. Let’s take a look at just the last 2 weeks of footpath history without being touched. 2 power cuts and 3 holes dug in to the paths on Station Lane. 
The path repair team managed water cut off and on over 2 days as WMDC workmen excavated a water main stop tap with a JCB and not a spade. WMDC still refuse to talk to residents and shopkeepers as works are still in progress. As ever not a Cllr in sight. Roll Eyes

The Featherstone Chronicle Part Two is now up to 1893 which was the year of the riot. You can read it on Google.

Nothing to do with a post on a forum but by good luck workmen turned up this week and did some work. It couldn't be that easy as it appears the doorway levelling issues have just been skipped in order to get a surface down on the path after complaints from above. Not surprising was the workmen looking to dig up another path well before they have finished the one they are on.
Not a Cllr in sight as usual Roll Eyes

Has WMDC Authorised the Desecration of Local Graves by trying to make a few quid?
During recent weeks WMDC has taken it upon itself to apply health and safety repair costs to graves in the Wakefield area. This has been conducted by using “privileged contractors” whose findings by un-approved methods have been spiked by way of a small notice board inside the leased grave areas, on top of the deceased. Supposed faulty grave stones have been “supported” with various bits of metal that are apparently officially approved and have been tested fit for purpose.

There is obviously a whole lot more information available that thousands of people driven by family passion are now looking at. For those Cllr that don’t read this forum you had better pick up the phone as this one will bite you in the ass. The above 1st paragraph should rattle WMDC legal services. The facts to come are even better unless WMDC really wish to continue with their interpretation of the current acts that are ironically covered by full Police enforcement to those who would commit such a crime.

It would be a very wise move by WMDC to very quickly remove their rubbish and install apologises on neutral ground. As usual not one local Labour party Cllr has said NO or has lifted a finger! Angry

Well its 6 weeks in to replacing the foot path outside of the Deli and its nearly finished (we hope!).
The 6 weeks have been interesting as shop keepers have been able to record progress. The record for the longest tea break now stands at 4 hours, plus a host of other absurd practices.
It is now quite clear that there is something very wrong with the job. The repairs are being made up and time made to be long. I wonder if the money paying for this is on an hourly rate.
Best of all the workmen are not happy as they are getting the flack for a poor job. Try this one for a WMDC leak. All the Yorkshire stone that has been removed from Featherstone has ended up in a yard where no one knows anything about it? Which Cllr has booked a new patio is my guess!

As usual 2 power cuts this week and 2 new holes dug in the paths. More to come but the local politicians still keep their heads in the sand.

The Featherstone Chronicle - internet version - was becoming a bit unwieldy so it was ended at 1885 and renamed The Featherstone Chronicle Part One. it contains a local history from 1086 to 1885 complete with 21 photos, 8 maps and 4 diagrams. It is easily found on Google. Not everyone is interested in ancient history, but it shows how your ancestors lived in Victorian times. Part Two is now up to 1892.

The old pop factory site has been busy for many weeks fitting drains. Seem to have missed the underground surface water holding tank being fitted before building began last week.
Not bad for one day. Usually about 2 moths to opening from this point.
