Steve Bailey has been carrying out duties in the town since 1993.

A SPECIAL constable from Holsworthy has received an award for long service and good conduct.

Special constable Steve Bailey joined in September 1993 and has been based at Holsworthy for the whole of his service.

He carries out his duties in between driving a school bus twice a day and working between those times as an agricultural contractor.

His citation from the ceremony on July 29 in Saltash said: “He has been an enthusiastic member of the section throughout his service always keen to get involved in the many events that take place locally.

“He is well known in the area and is held in high regard by all those he comes into contact with.

“Steve would like to thank his wife and family who over the years have had to deal with him putting duty before family on numerous occasions.”
