The High Sheriff of East Sussex

Richard Bickersteth

(High Sheriff 2023-24)

I am honoured to be High Sheriff of East Sussex for this year. I serve as The King's representative for law and order in the county and the city, actively supporting the Judiciary, the Police and other law-enforcement agencies, the emergency services, local authorities and all recognised church and faith groups.

During my Shrieval Year I am also supporting young people/children, rural communities and all those voluntary organisations who work with them, especially those who are overlooked or vulnerable.
