Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PEOPLE IN PICTURES -

LONG serv­ing for­mer county coun­cil­lors have been given the ti­tle of honorary Al­der­men in recog­ni­tion of their years of ser­vice.

The six new mem­bers have more than 100 years of ser­vice be­tween them, and they took their seats at the 125th an­niver­sary meet­ing of Buck­ing­hamshire County Coun­cil on Thurs­day, July 27.

Among those who have be­come Al­der­men are Bruce Allen, of Chal­font St Peter, who served on the county coun­cil from 1997 to 2013, and Michael Col­ston of Great Mis­senden, who served from 2001 un­til 2012.

The other coun­cil­lors are Mar­ion Clay­ton, Freda Roberts MBE, who served for 41 years, David Pol­hill and Richard Push­man.

Cur­rent county coucil­lor for Chal­font St Peter, David Martin, who suc­ceeded Mr Allen, said: “This is a well-der­served hon­our for Bruce and rightly ac­knowl­edges all the work he has done for both county and our vil­lage for such a long time.

“As an honorary Al­der­man, Bruce will be asked to carry out a num­ber of cer­e­mo­nial du­ties dur­ing the years ahead and I hope he en­joys his new role as the first ever Al­der­man of Chal­font St Peter.”
