Former councillor honoured at ceremony

Former Sandwell councillor, Gurcharan Singh Sidhu, has been made an honorary alderman after 32 years in public office. 

Alderman Sidhu represented Greets Green and Lyng ward on the council before retiring due to ill health last May. He was a former chairman of the education and audit committees and was Mayor of Sandwell in 2007-2008.

He was made an alderman at a special investiture ceremony attended by councillors, family and other guests at the Council Chamber at Sandwell Council House by Councillor John Edwards, his  longtime colleague.

Councillor Edwards, who has also represented Greets Green and Lyng for many years, said he was pleased to see Alderman Sidhu being recognised for his dedication to the residents of the ward and the Sandwell borough in general. He added:

“He has been a very dedicated councillor and has played a big part in the running of the authority over the more than three decades he has been representing local people."
