• High Sheriff of Surrey


Invited by HHJ Robert Fraser the senior Judge in Guildford Crown Court to join with him in presenting Bravery awards to five individuals who in the view of the Court had demonstrated extreme bravery in assisting bringing felons to justice. It was a humbling experience to hear the citations read out by Robert Fraser. Villains may be bad and deserve what the justice system imposes but there are some really unsung citizens who make the world such a better place. I met five of them today. Pictured is Dr Edward Yates. Of uncertain age (older than me!) but what a trooper. He had been the victim of a violent robbery in his mobility scooter on a quiet street but had the nouse to note and remember the number plate of the car his attacker dove off in. This let to the latter's arrest and imprisonment.
