Councillors were discussing how they should recognise his service to the market, when he does step down.
Councillor Sally Casson said: "Terry has been brilliant with the market over the years. "He has often worked over and above his job and the market traders hold him in very high regard.
"He is retiring at the end of August and it would be nice to do a presentation to him, at a council meeting."
Although a watch was suggested as a traditional retirement gift, others felt that a plaque would be more appropriate.
