Wednesday 5th April was change over day from High Sheriff Tom Floyd to me. I read and signed my ‘Declaration’ to High Court Judge Hon. Mr Justice Warby in the Winchester Law Courts to an assembly of court officers, judges and guests. It was a fantastic occasion, made very special by all concerned and we then sat in to watch the mornings on-going trial with the prosecution barrister cross examining the defendant in a manslaughter case. I wore my new High Sheriff uniform for the first time, brilliantly made with blue velvet by Beaulieu seamstress Ann Scott.
I am so looking forward to the year ahead and having the privilege of meeting so many interesting and dedicated people working in law in order in our great county.
