Two new honorary Freemen of the Borough have been appointed.
Former councillor and mayor Alfred Duggan and current councillor George Chatel have both received the honour.
95 year-old Mr Duggan was a councillor for 16 years and a former Mayor, as was 72 year-old Mr Chatel who has served on the council for Victoria Ward since 1982.
He’s been a tireless charity fundraiser for most of that time:
