Honorary Alderman Award for Bill

by billhoult on 20 July, 2014

Readers of my blogs will know that I stood down from  Harrogate District Council last May after 20 years service. A nice surprise for me was when I was called tom attend a Council meeting to be made an Honorary Alderman of the Borough in recognition of my long service as a Councillor. At the same meeting the outgoing and excellent Mayor Mike Newby was also recognised in the same way.

“Although purely symbolic (the position carries neither privileges,duties nor allowances) I am greatly moved by the decision taken by my former colleagues to appoint me as an Honorary Alderman. Also I would like to give my best wishes to Liberal Democrat Cllr David Goode who replaced me as a representative of Knaresborough on the Council.”

Bill still represents Knaresborough in his role as County Councillor on North Yorkshire County Council.
