15 New Appointments To The Magistracy

Magistrates play a critical role in our judicial system, and the Surrey ranks of these dedicated volunteers were swelled by a further 15 at a Swearing-in Ceremony in the Crown Court this afternoon. Our new magistrates are proudly standing behind the seated panel (from left; Mrs Jane Macauley, JP; HH Judge Fraser, Honorary Recorder of Guildford; Michael More-Molyneux, Lord Lieutenant of Surrey and Mrs Karen Goodfellow, JP). Clerk Richard Hunt (standing right) provided excellent guidance and oversight throughout the entire proceedings, and all family and friends were delighted to join the panel members in saying ‘Thank You’ to these wonderful recruits to the Magistracy!
