A ceremony at Guildford Cathedral saw the new High Sheriff of Surrey, Robert Douglas CBE, installed into the ancient office.


Once the most powerful figure in local governance, the High Sheriff now performs mainly judicial and ceremonial functions in a role created more than 1,000 years ago and predated only by the monarch.


Although I look forward to engaging with a wide range of groups and communities across the county, said Mr Douglas.


I have a particular interest in helping young people in the 16 to 25 age group access education, training or employment, particularly those who are disadvantaged in some way.
