Historian David Fleming has been rewarded for his work documenting life in Ormiston.

The 87-year-old was presented with the 2013 Ormiston Community Award following a poll of households at the end of last year.

As previously reported in the News, David ignited a passion for local history when he retired from the Merchant Navy in 1985 and began making models.

His files on community life go back to the 12th century.
