A volunteer with the Aberdyfi RNLI is to be honoured with an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for his dedication to search and rescue.
Sixty-three-year old David Williams first became an RNLI volunteer in the early eighties, when he joined as a helmsman. He became Operations Manager in 1996 and also leads Aberdyfi's Mountain Search and Rescue Team.
Despite these two time-consuming commitments, David still works as a Senior Park Warden in the Snowdonia National Park
"David has played a key leadership role in his local community. His support and passion for both causes has been unstinting, and I am delighted he has been recognised with an MBE." - Paul Boissier, RNLI Chief Executive
