Do councillors care?

I WAS terribly shocked to read the front page of the Midhurst and Petworth Observer this week.

Those running the affairs of the WSCC seem totally heartless.

Despite earning enviable salaries, they pay expensive consultants to help them, and spend huge sums of money on various unimportant projects, yet they neglect the vulnerable members of the community.

Rother Valley Together is to be congratulated on the way it has set up day-care facilities in Midhurst, but volunteers can only do so much.

To think that our lovely West Sussex has one of the worst records in the whole country for its treatment of those in greatest need.

Yet the disastrous cuts that have been made recently were not necessary; the money was there all the time.
