Town needs investment

I AM a regular reader of the Pontefract and Castleford Express but I am getting tired of reading about the redevelopment of the towns Pontefract and Castleford.

When are Coun Box and Coun Jeffery going to stop ignoring the town of Featherstone and write about the redevelopment of this town?

Nothing seems to be happening – for example the through road on Green Lane, the waste ground on the old Kwik Save site.

Featherstone used to be a thriving town but now all we have is takeaways, hairdressers, and recently a couple of second hand shops have opened up.

Sorry, I forgot about Lidl supermarket – big deal.

When are we going to have more choice instead of seeing tumbleweed rolling down Station Lane?

Let’s have some investment like Pontefract and Castleford.

It makes me wonder if Featherstone is still part of the Five Towns.
