The current High Sheriff of Herefordshire is Tricia Thomas.
Tricia and Richard Thomas
It’s an honour to introduce myself as the new High Sheriff of Herefordshire for 2020-21. The role should involve attending meetings, gatherings and social occasions, very much out-and-about and hands-on with the people, organisations and businesses of our great County. Whilst I am only a custodian of the role for a short time, I believe passionately in the good that flows from this ancient office.
Of course, the COVID-19 pandemic means that I am self-isolating with my husband Richie and, like all of us, ‘normal’ has been put on hold. Equally, as a positive person, my inclination is to do all I can to make the most of my post and contribute wherever possible to ensuring Herefordshire stays strong and emerges ready to face the new challenges post virus.
Many of the engagements I was so looking forward to have been cancelled and I feel for all those who have spent time planning and preparing. I will attend as many of those which are able to be re-arranged in safer times.
Right now, in the grips of the lockdown, my challenge is to find ways that the office of High Sheriff can support people and organisations in these unprecedented times. I have embraced social media and am now on Facebook @HighSheriffofHerefordshire.
If I can be of help to you, or any person or organisation in need, then please get in touch. I will be delighted to hear from you.
Stay safe and well.
