“I am honoured to have been given the opportunity of being High Sheriff of Rutland and will do my best to support our community at a time when we are still recovering from the impacts of Covid.
My core role is to support law and order – the judiciary, the prison service and probation service, the emergency services and community organisations that support law and order.
In addition, I hope to visit as many voluntary organisations and meet as many volunteers as possible.
I would like to do everything possible to encourage people to volunteer more. Our society is more heavily dependent on volunteers than many people realise and we need to encourage every generation to give what time they can. Society gains and volunteers gain mental health benefits from their involvement.
