My last engagement on 12th March before Covid stuck-, last but by no means least, to visit Reigate Police station , and Mole Valley Station in Dorking. An insight into neighbourhood Teams and the rural work of the PCSO's and much more. At this moment I just wish for all our front line services strength and health.

I have been so lucky to have had an inspirational Volunteer Police Cadet, Meghna, as my cadet, supporting me as High Sheriff since April 2019. With all engagements ending a month early I have not had the opportunity to publicly thank Meghna for her tremendous support this last eleven months.

Meghna has been the most wonderful support ;she has carried the Shrieval sword, walked beside me in processions: on Remembrance Sunday , the Service for the Judiciary and the Civic services, accompanied me into Court, kept me watered with tea, looked after my guests at the Garden party, straightened my hat and badge, entertained Judges, welcomed new magistrates, attended mock trials, (and the real thing), been at police Passing out parades and the Chief Constable awards ceremony and many other things beside. And so it is a big disappointment, that Meghna, having taken the role on like a fish to water cannot finish with a huge and celebratory big splash.

At least we could celebrate her birthday before movement and social interaction became to impossible. Bill and I enjoyed a delicious family dinner cooked by Meghan's mum. Thank you to Meghna and your wonderful family

In the A and E departments at the Royal Surrey County Hospital and St Peter's Hospital Chertsey the small Christian team of Emerge advocacy is providing on the spot support for young people struggling with self harm or suicidal feelings. The youth workers continue to provide ongoing critical support following the initial work in A and E. Sadly the need for this work has been growing and Emerge are now a highly valued in the Accident and Emergency wards. The dedication and commitment as the volunteers and youth workers spend their nights in A and E speaks for itself.See www.emergeadvocacy.com

I was so pleased to be able to give to Joy and Bethany a cheque and certificate from The High sheriff youth awards to acknowledge the work they do in making Surrey Communities stronger and safer.
