Welcome to the website of the High Sheriff of Rutland

Here you can keep in touch with the ongoing work of the High Sheriff during the Shrieval year and learn more about the role of an appointment that goes back to before the Norman Conquest

Richard Cole made his Declaration for the year 2020-21 at Oakham Castle on Thursday 19th March 2020

The website enables you to contact Richard directly, keep up to date with events, learn more about the history of the role and the team – it will also feature images of events attended and projects supported

“It is an immense privilege to be taking this role for the wonderful County of Rutland … I recognise that we are facing very uncertain and challenging times but I am confident that we have a very strong community underpinned by some amazing people who I wish to recognise and encourage wherever possible”

As High Sheriff, I will continue to build on the work done by his predecessors in encouraging volunteering and focus on all those organisations that support the cohesion of the County especially those working with the less fortunate and with young people to help them make good life choices.

In the words of Richard Cole, Rutland Sheriff

It is my intention to support, encourage and recognise the statutory organisations, charities, voluntary groups and individuals who work to support and maintain the fabric of our society.
