In a letter to the newly appointed Knight Bachelor, the Mayor sent congratulations on behalf of Dudley borough and thanked Sir John for his support over recent years. Councillor Sue Greenaway, the Mayor of Dudley, said:

“Sir John is highly thought of in Dudley borough and we are all extremely proud of the strong relationship we have developed in recent years.

“As Lord-Lieutenant, John has supported and attended events including our remembrance service and tree plantings as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy.

“He is an advocate for our borough and the region and having served for many years as the Queen’s representative, it’s fitting that his service to the region has been recognised in His Majesty The King’s first New Year honours.
