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.

The Featherstone Chronicle on line is now up to 1882. Recent issues have covered the planning and opening of Purston Church (intended to have a spire - see the original sketch), the night the winding rope broke at Snydale Colliery killing eight men, the installation of street gas lamps, and much more with illustrations by Tony Lumb. If you are interested in how your grandparents or great grandparents lived have a read.

For almost 3 months business's in Station Lane have had a lot to put up with. Amongst the problems is power cuts. WMDC were informed of the problem s and a host of others before they began the new footpaths that were due to be ready for "election time". After 16 power cuts at last WMDC has had to allowed repairs. So half way in to the footpath farce they have now been dug up twice with more holes to come. An our Featherstone Cllrs do know so it appears they have their head in the political sand...... Shocked

A unusual post there Old Stonian not sure what you mean by "not much chance of that". The Author of the Featherstone Chronicle also owns the copy right and has apparently left it to a relative to publish which has happened in the last month  Grin
Still a good read. This is the link,
