Councillors give their time for free

I am reading the Colne Times and there is a letter entitled “Too many councillors”.

The topic of it concerns the council saving money and the writer questions whether our area actually needs all of the councillors they list.

I would like to say the town and parish councillors are not paid and are entirely voluntary so give their time and efforts freely.

Coun. Janet Whincup
