MBE honour for Retford retained firefighter

A DEDICATED and selfless Retford retained firefighter has been awarded an MBE for his service and commitment to the community for 43 years.

David Beardsall, known also as Barney to his colleagues, said he was thrilled to hear he had received the prestigious honour after a ‘wonderful’ year.

It’s a double accolade for the 62-year-old who was presented with the Notts Fire and Rescue (NFRS) Service Outstanding Public Service award in November.
