Former Diss mayor Glyn Walden made honorary alderman
Former Diss Mayor Glyn Walden has been recognised for his services to south Norfolk by being awarded the esteemed title of honorary alderman.
The Aldermanic Review Panel, which only meet every four years, also recommended Tim East, long serving Bressingham and Burston councillor Keith Weeks (far right), Bill Dinneen, Martin Wynne, and Ronnie Hoare for the honour. Each recommendation was voted on by the Council and all were passed unanimously. Rob Walden (far left) received the honour on his father’s behalf as he recovers from a stroke.
The title Honorary Alderman does not confer any special privileges on the recipient, but is intended to acknowledge the services of past members of the Council.
