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.
Mr Shahid Azeem DL, is Surrey's High Sheriff for the year 2020-21 and he
will be blogging regularly about his 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.
Together we remember them.
Virtual Remembrance to remember Surreys' War Heroes.
The High Sheriff of Surrey, Shahid Azeem, was amongst the dignitaries that laid a wreath in Jubilee Square, Woking, during a closed ceremony due to the second lockdown of 2020. Woking Borough Council kindly supplied LIVE footage which was aired on the High Sheriff's social media pages allowing the citizens of Surrey to share in the ceremony as it happened. Another challenge overcome during the coronavirus pandemic in a year that has minimised activity for the High Sheriff who would normally attend many public events and visits. Together we remembered them.
