Three long-serving former West Norfolk councillors were appointed as Honorary Aldermen during a special meeting held ahead of last night’s annual mayor making ceremony.
Trevor Manley, left, John Loveless and Anthony Lovett were confirmed in the role in recognition of their combined 54 years of service to the authority.
The honour is reserved for former councillors who have held senior office or given exceptional service to the borough.
Outgoing leader Nick Daubney said he was honoured to propose the awards, describing the recipients’ service as “magnificent” and “legendary.”
Deputy leader Alistair Beales, who seconded the nomination, also praised their “energy and commitment and selfless public service.”
