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.

Surrey's first Virtual Installation of a High Sheriff is a great success!
The Coronavirus pandemic and its social restrictions meant that the 2020 High Sheriff's Installation was unable to take place and so technology helped to mark the occasion and the resulting video was watched by almost two thousand people over various online platforms meaning considerable more people were able to see the ceremony being performed. The Surrey Advertiser's subsequent spread appeared the following week and can be read here by clicking on the picture.
