Last year, Brian was voted one of the top 10 Merseysiders and received a portrait by artist Micheline Robinson, and in 2005 he received an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from the University of Liverpool.
According to the Liverpool Daily Post, Jacques said:
- "It’s nice to be honoured by my own city. I’m a son of Liverpool and it’s still my home town, I love living here and swimming in Everton every morning.
- "I’m happiest when I’m reading to children and I often visit Liverpool schools. I communicate well with kids and I never speak down to them.”
Congratulations again Brian!
