Two new bus stops have appeared on Pontefract road that many will have not noticed. Probably no one cares how much they cost or who paid for them. Perhaps you would care now that you can see how far almost £100k of Featherstone’s regeneration money has been spent to maintain a LTD company’s assets.  Roll Eyes

Interesting comments from a number of local people regards Colliers Court. For some strange reason at least 3 times a week a very large drain suction truck is still cleaning out the drains at the front of Colliers Court. The latest people moving in this week have questioned why the drains are visibly just under the metal grates full of gravel / stone.

As this topic started with a good example of the political system Featherstone is trapped in perhaps this year just by telling the truth instead of using a gun will make for some interesting reading.
Lets start with those throwing bricks in glass houses.......... (bricks, houses and glass are going to more poignant words than you would possibly expect this year)

Lets see If a certain Featherstone Cllr remembers his quote "Worth more than Money which some crave". Perhaps the Cllr hasn't realised he has jumped into a bigger hole than he did the first time with the same people! Roll Eyes

Oh dear, Oh dear as I read the next plan and shake my head and grin  Grin. At last SOME of the paths on Station Lane are to be repaired. Na , it couldn't be that easy. The paths proposed are also due to be dug up just after they are finished as electrical and water services are under "on going repairs". Their might be a small window for a political glory picture.
Their must be a plan to destroy Station Lane as also included is the narrowing of the road. Probably the only way to tackle the speeding problems that wont have any affect.  Roll Eyes

So a year on from just over £500k spent to fix the problems and the road has been dug up 9 times and has been closed several times due to flooding. Wouldn't it have been more productive to give Featherstone the £500k and ignore the original problem?  Roll Eyes

Their appears to be a new type of thief stalking Featherstone. Over the past month there have been at least 8 thefts by persons using a white van. There appears to be 2 vans travelling around. One is a long wheelbase semi-high top Sprinter with a pair of stripes along its sides. The other appears to be a white Ford Transit. What is different is how they are operating. These criminals are using the cover of daytime and early evening to commit their crimes. Passersby are not even thinking a robbery is taking place. Quite often the vans are in clear view whilst being loaded for up to an hour. If you see something suspicious report the crime or just ask.

No9. Almost missed the day and a half of traffic lights this week to dig a new hole. The structure of the road must be well compromised by now. It should start breaking up anytime. But hey, who cares? Roll Eyes

I have never been racist. I have many friends from all walks of the world.
After 9 / 11 my awareness to a political terror group was gained like many millions of us. Not to mention feeling the sickness of the atrocity.
I was not aware of the French attack until Saturday night. My first report was being shown a sickening video of wounded people being shot again whilst a massacre took place. I am not easily shocked. The French attack was blood thirsty and sick and appeared to me even worse than watching people jumping out of the twin towers in the hope their body would be found rather than being burned to death and never found. I now have my own new opinion of the terrorists.
My reason for mentioning / making comment is very significant especially to Featherstone who is not as far away from the action as it would like. Thanks to a terror group a race of people and a religion have been placed in the spot light as a public enemy. Sadly a minority of this type of person appears to be using the terror / fear to get on with run of the mill organised crime.
Just a few days after the French attacks on the 17th November Featherstone was hit by a group of organised criminals. 2 Mercedes cars pulled up in Wilson Street. The cars contained 3 males and 4 females. Using the power of a crowd they entered a local shop. Attempting to disguise / cover up using religious clothing they attempted to distract staff in order to steal from the premises. Thankfully due to the entire country being on high alert the staff and members of the public in the shop worked out quickly there was an unusual situation. Thankfully the robbery was stopped. The CCTV apparently will go live shortly.
My concern is where the hell do we go from here? There are no local police so who should Featherstone call...... the terror squad? Featherstone may be a small town but the events of last night could have become bloody. It would be nice to think that the police eventually turned up and worked out they should call their mates nearby districts..................................
