keep Wrenthorpe a village

Over 700 new houses are proposed for Wrenthorpe, to be built on agricultural land.

If these developments go ahead, Wrenthorpe will become a suburb of Wakefield and cease to be a village.

As part of "The Rhubarb Triangle",  Wakefield recently held a festival of food and rhubarb. This brings revenue and visitors to the area.

How can this event be promoted once the fields contain houses instead of rhubarb?

Wrenthorpe has always had an agricultural tradition and this can not be allowed to be destroyed by pen pushing, office based people who have no idea what it means to live in a village.
