New Rutland High Sheriff

The new Rutland High Sheriff is one of five in the country who have another chance to make a difference having already done the role in lockdown.

Richard Cole was originally appointed in 2021  and is looking forward to getting out in the county to visit as many voluntary organisations as he can through his year in office. He told us:

"It's a unique opportunity really. Yes, I was nominated originally in COVID year, which obviously changed all our plans and was very tough for everybody, but the Lord Lieutenant and I did have the opportunity of thanking, albeit only in letter form, so many people who did so much in their communities at that time.

So it is a unique opportunity that the county has asked me to do it again to serve the people, and I really look forward this time to getting out and about across the county to all our towns and villages to meet as many of those people who do such good things as unsung heroes, and thank them on everybody's behalf."
