I am writing as Leader of Royston Town Council in response to Mr Zambonini's letter regarding expenses.

I cannot speak for district or county councillors, but I would like to assure him and all residents of Royston that no Royston town councillor receives any expenses at all.

Indeed, most councillors receive their agendas by email and print them off at no expense to the town council.

All councillors who are elected to the town council are fully aware that the position is one of a voluntary nature.

We give our time freely to attend meetings, training sessions, and consultations, and are dedicated to making Royston the town we all want it to be.

Cllr Lynn Berry, Leader, Royston Town Council
