Take my hat off to young councillors
Dear Sir, — Recently and for the first time in my life I have, as a member of the public, attended several Congleton Town Council meetings.
Not knowing exactly what to expect I have been pleasantly surprised.
In my opinion the level of debate is high but this is more than matched by the genuine enthusiasm of our town councillors, bearing in mind that as town councillors they receive no payment for the work they do.
In particular I take my hat off to some off the new and younger councillors who are presumably holding down full time jobs and raising families at the same time.
