2021-2022 High Sheriff Installation

The first recorded High Sheriff of Surrey was In 1066 and since then the role has evolved through plague, wars, huge upheavals of all kind and pandemics. Long gone are the law enforcing, tax collecting strongmen of old and, as Surrey emerges from the ravages caused by Covid 19, I feel hugely priviledged to take on the ‘softer power’ of the modern day High Sheriff. The ability to support, say thank you, convene and connect: or as I like to say, ‘join the dots together’ bringing people together to share professional and personal experiences, one of those things that makes life better.
