Since the 'Gazette publicised calls by residents to formally recognise Matt's achievements, more ideas and suggestions have been pouring in - including inviting Matt to switch on the city's Christmas lights, and organising a civic celebration.

Transdev, the operating group behind The Harrogate Bus Company, have confirmed that they would welcome the opportunity to hear any ideas and suggestions from residents about naming a bus after Matt, who won the prestigious Senior Manx Grand Prix motorcycle race in the Isle of Man.
