ONCE AGAIN well intended people are doing the work done previously by council workers i.e road sweepers, Echo letters "Thank you" April 17.

Councils and councillors are taking full advantage of well meaning volunteers able to make cuts to services (road sweepers) knowing this once public service will be covered by volunteers.

Sometimes it is reported that dozens and dozens of bags full with rubbish had been collected by volunteers making the point that the council now no longer have the workers in place to clean-up properly.

What happens when it rains or when a good nature volunteer moves or are ill ?

As for councillors helping out from time to time, they would be better doing the job they were elected to do and fight and insist on proper funding for services.
