Wow, nice one thanks. All rumour and gossip of course except that in Featherstone the factual usually follows.
Not much digging to find youíre on the right tracks and hitting someoneís nerve.
Apparently a few years ago a Labour Cllr suggested scrapping the town council and handing control to WMDC.
Prior to Purston Park Town Hall being sold off plans were made to hold Featherstone Town Council meetings in the library. Perhaps the Clock Cafť town hall was being re-decorated, perhaps not.

The set up in Featherstone library is that pull across patrician walls can be drawn to create rooms. It appears from witnessís that a council meeting and a sliming club met one night in December side by side. A comment was heard from one side presumably aimed at the other side that has caused a subsequent complaint to be made.

20 tonne of tarmac mathís out about right. Strangely no one seems to know anything about it apart from a workman on Green Lane who was ironically laying tarmac. Thatís a lot of cash and more than a truck load that could go back for a refund. As the Green lane road is being built with a grant is every load not accountable?
Before anyone moans we should be grateful please take in to consideration that this fine coat tarmac laid on rough unprepared wet ground. Two puddles were tarmaced around. Life expectancy is weeks before lifting and leaving chunks to drive around. Why not do the job right instead of another Featherstone bodge up.

How big is Featherstone? A very interesting question I wish more people would bother to have an interest considering the subject involves money for Featherstone if someone simply asks for it. Itís a lot bigger than you think mainly due to its boundary being extended recently so that more votes could be counted.
Cllr Graham Isherwood was in the Labour news rag before Christmas arguing the case. Cllr Isherwood hit the press arguing that the new Police station is in Featherstone. Cllr Isherwood is correct. Featherstone has a new police station. The boundary of Featherstone extends far past this and covers much of the new industrial and domestic new builds. Every sing new build including the new Police Station had to give money to the community. All a Cllr needed to do was ask. Guess who didnít ask for Featherstone?

The Christmas light information is awful. I have passed it to the shops you mentioned. Yep still no one has noticed or complained. Awful.
Good old days is about right. The great Featherstone sell off!
