Hat off to Labour Cllr Graham Isherwood for getting stuck in and raising cash for a good cause............
Shame Labour Cllr Bill Mulroe couldn’t smile.............

The McMillan charity is a great cause.................

Have to agree with similar concerns where the cash goes............

Getting back to Featherstone and its own problems what about disabled issues in town? After years of complaints and thousands of pounds paid in compensation to pedestrians this year half a job was done to fill the long drains outside OnStop. This was not because WMDC wonted to but because Labour Cllr Graham Isherwood and Labour Cllr Richard Taylor had been made to see that at least 5 wheel chairs had fallen in to the holes causing harm to the disabled person and temporary entrapment. Not to mention the badly maintained dropped curbs on every street corner on Station Lane that us able folk take for granted. After months of complaint with no response local disabled people have offered their own challenge to both District Cllrs to sit in a wheel chair and see how difficult the terrain actually is. Their offer has been turned down. The excuse is that their insurance will not cover it. Considering the news report there has to be either a blind eye or a lie when it suits. It’s also amazing how quite Labour Cllr Janet Power and her husband are considering their role as seniors of the Disabled Peoples Partnership. Obviously nothing to do with political power. When Labour lost Featherstone their complaints about the issue were obviously false.
Why not take the glory for inproving the town with a fraction of the money released by all the new building in town? Simple answer.
