AN ON-CALL firefighter from Malpas has been presented with a medal for 20 years of exemplary service.
Firefighter Margot Davies lives and works as an on-call firefighter the village fire station and was presented with the Long Service Good Conduct Medal during a ceremony at Eaton Hall last month.
Her colleagues Dennis Rich and Tim Waterson were also presented with awards, as previously reported by the Whitchurch Herald.
During her career Margot has attended a number of complex and interesting incidents, one of which was the 2011 fire at Peckforton Castle.
She also believes the service is becoming more equal, with more women being encouraged to join – a big difference from when she joined in 1996, when there was just herself and one other female firefighter on the crew.
Margot has a son Giles, who works alongside her at Malpas Fire Station, and is known as Neehah Nanny by her grandson.
