They don’t live here

Rochdale Road

Sowerby Bridge

So Councillor Amanda Byrne extols the wisdom of living in Sowerby Bridge (“Your say, 14 February),” of course she is quite right!

However, her fine words would carry more meaning and weight, if she actually lived in Sowerby Bridge! She lives in Stainland!

The other two councillors for Sowerby Bridge also live outside the area. One lives in Ogden, while the other lives in Illingworth. Of course there is an opportunity for residents of Sowerby Bridge to change that in May.
