A Talk with the High Sheriff

Have you ever wondered about what a High Sheriff is, and what it is they do?

Their origins lay in the Saxon times, before the Norman Conquest, and they have served many roles since then. Today, they act as the representative of the King throughout West Sussex, second only to the Lord Lieutenant. Each High Sheriff is appointed for a year.

Why not come and join our current High Sheriff for West Sussex, Andy Bliss QPM as he talks about the role and his experiences as his year as High Sheriff draws to a close?

Andy Bliss previously worked in the police becoming Chief Constable of Hertfordshire. After retiring from the police, he completed a Master’s Degree in Archaeology at the University of York and now undertakes research on historic buildings and landscapes.
