The roles and responsibilities of the High Sheriff
February 10, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Willie Hartley Russell was sworn in as the High Sheriff of Berkshire on Friday 26th March, 2021, for this year. The Office of High Sheriff is an independent, non-political, Royal appointment for the period of one year. It is the oldest secular office in country apart from the monarchy. Today, the role is now largely ceremonial, but carries the status of being the Queen’s highest judicial officer in the county. The role involves a mix of ceremonial, charitable and community functions.
Note the change from the details previous advertised. Dave Stubbs’ talk about the First Battle of Newbury will be given at a later date.
