Luton Borough Council should do more to recognise the town’s heroes, according to the councillor behind plans to make Hatters manager John Still an honorary freeman of the borough.
Lifetime Luton Town fan Michael Dolling, representative for Stopsley, proposed the honour for Still– which was unaminously agreed by councillors.
Should the Hatters manager accept the award, he will be invited to the Town Hall for a special ceremony.
Cllr Dolling told Herald & Post that the honour should be the first of many the council bestows.
He said: “It was agreed that sometimes we do nothighlight these people enough.
“There is limited scope for reward but I can think of plenty of people who would be right to receive something like this.”
Cllr Dolling added that Still’s award, the first of its kind since 1992, is being given in recognition of the entire club’s efforts over the last year.
He said: “It had to be offered to an individual so its for John Still, on behalf of the club.
“The title celebrations have raised the town’s morale.”
