Supporting the Judiciary – one of the primary roles of the High Sheriff.

One of the best parts about being High Sheriff is the opportunity to engage with and support the Judiciary. I have had two recent visits to the Guildford Courts. The first to the Crown Court at the invitation of HHJ Patricia Lees to witness the swearing in of a magistrate – a good event and an excellent addition to the bench. Secondly a visit to the Family Courts at the invitation of HHJ Alison Raeside. My eyes were opened to the breadth and complexity of the work carried out by the Family Courts – a fascinating morning concluding with a convivial sandwich lunch with all the Judges. #guildfordcrowncourt #thejudiciary #thehighsheriffofsurrey #lawandorder #surreyjudiciary #surreypolice #thesurreylieutenancy #bbcradiosurrey #surreyhillsradio #surreylive #surreymatters #magistrates
