Nottinghamshire stalwarts receive an Alderman honour
Two prominent former Nottinghamshire councillors have been given special honorary positions in recognition of their services.
Former Conservative Leader Kay Cutts and Labour deputy leader Joyce Bosnjak have both received the rarely-bestowed Honorary Alderman title.
The honorary role is given to councillors who have been nominated for their exceptional service to the council and the wider Nottinghamshire community.
Nottinghamshire County Council has previously only appointed six Honorary Aldermen since 1974, which indicates the level of service recognised by the appointment.
Kay Cutts served the Radcliffe division for 32 years and led the council between 2009 and 2013 and again from 2017 until 2021.
She has devoted almost 50 years to public life.
