Reflecting on the awards, David said: “The number of wonderful people – paid public servants or volunteers – who do so much to keep Warwickshire working is awe inspiring.

"No matter how much time I spent out and about, I have been conscious from the beginning that I could not possibly meet or thank all who go above and beyond and so I asked for nominations from the public, through the High Sheriff Website and from organisations as I went around and have been stunned with the response.”

"This reception in the old heart of the county town is a chance to say thank you to as many people as I could with a High Sheriff Award certificate.”
