Borough honour for Gilbertís Greg thumbnail

ANTRIM and Newtownabbey Borough Council has conferred its first ever 'Honorary Citizenship of the Borough' on US citizen Greg Tilque.
The award, for people who have made an 'exceptional' contribution to local life, was created by council in August - and the enterprising American was named the first recipient literally moments later.
Mr Tilque is the senior economic development manager at the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce and good friends with Council Chief Executive Jacqui Dixon - indeed her husband, Rev Campbell Dixon, officiated at Mr Tilque's marriage to wife Kathy.
A council spokesperson said Mr Tilque has been 'instrumental' in establishing economic, educational and cultural links between Antrim and Newtownabbey and its 'Sister City', Gilbert in Arizona.
