Welcome to the website of the High Sheriff of Surrey. Here you can
keep in touch with the ongoing work of the High Sheriff throughout the Shrieval
year and learn about the role of an appointment that goes back to before the
Norman conquest. It will feature details of each High Sheriff's focus areas and
galleries of images taken at the events attended and of projects supported.
Mrs Bridget Biddell is Surrey's High Sheriff for the year 2019-20 and she
will be blogging regularly about her visits throughout the County. Whilst the
post is a very traditional and ancient one it is important to embrace modern
technology to help raise awareness of the vital work undertaken to improve and enhance our county.
Service for the Judiciary brings together four female High Sheriffs
Guildford high street was awash with pageantry on the 4th October as the High Sheriff, Bridget Biddell, and the County's dignitaries paraded along the cobbles between the Guildhall and the Holy Trinity church to celebrate the work of Surrey's Judiciary with a service in their honour. Also present in support of the role were Female High Sheriffs from 3 neighbouring Counties - West Sussex, East Sussex and Hampshire.
The service featured readings from prominent Judiciary members including the High Sheriffs' Cadet - Meghna Singh and was attended by the Lord Lieutenant - Michael More-Molyneux, Chairman of Surrey County Council - Tony Samuels and Mayors and Chairs from the region. Then followed a reception in Guildford's stunning Guildhall.
