The High Sheriff Comes To High Tea

The residents of our Uppingham site were pleased to have the High Sheriff of Rutland, Geoff Thompson join them for afternoon tea last week. This is thought to be the first time in recent years that the serving High Sheriff has visited a SJSA site, and there was an added bonus in him attending wearing the full regalia of office.

The High Sheriff delighted the audience by explaining how the role came about, how current appointments are made, and the breath of the role as it is today.

The photo below shows the High Sheriff alongside Mrs Susan Spilner (Chair of the House Committee) and two residents (seated).
