REGENT STREET TRAFFIC ISSUE: Once again I’m highlighting the issue of vehicles turning into Regent Street from Doncaster Rd showing complete disregard for the NO ENTRY sign and it is only a matter of time before there is an accident there or an incident of serious road rage. I’ve e-mailed Highways Department today to bring to their attention this matter as well.

STREET SIGNS: Has anyone else noticed that there are a few street signs missing from this area and I would like to get some sort of a list of missing street signs in our area with a view of contacting local authority and asking them to bring street signs up to date if possible.

EID MILAD UL NABI : The annual Milad peace march will take place Sunday 29th January and will follow the normal route and let’s hope we get as good turnout as in previous years to make it a joyous milad celebration. I would like to ask all muslims in Wakefield to try to make the event as the committee behind the milad peace march work very hard to organise the event and they deserve the community’s thanks.
