The High Sheriff’s Lecture

Sir David Calvert-Smith

His Honour Judge Daniel Pearce-Higgins QC and I co-hosted the annual High Sheriff’s lecture on 8th November in the Shire Hall. It was largely organised by Erica Manley, Event Coordinator and Fundraiser at Hereford Cathedral Perpetual Trust https://www.herefordcathedral.org/hereford-cathedral-perpetual-trust with the ticket proceeds from nearly 90 guests divided between the Trust and the Herefordshire Community Foundation www.herefordshirecf.org
Our guest speaker was Sir David Calvert-Smith https://www.qebholliswhiteman.co.uk/site/people/profile/david.calvert-smith who reflected modestly on his very distinguished career, including as an advocate, judge, Director of Public Prosecutions and latterly Chairman of the Parole Board England and Wales.
His talk prompted a number of questions and we were very grateful that he gave up his time to be with us and give us so many insights into his fifty years in crime, as it were.
