When the Band of the Devon & Somerset Fire Brigade recently played at Compton Castle, the home of the High Sheriff of Devonshire, the Drum Major – Bro David Morley of St. Margaret’s Lodge Topsham - was presented with an award which he thought initially was for the Band as a whole.  After reading it however he realised that that the award was for him alone and the Band were in on the secret! 

The High Sheriff’s Award was given to him in recognition of his long service to the Fire Brigade and to the Community Volunteering projects Dave is involved in locally.
