Maundy Thursday - 18th April 2019

The Inauguration of Simon Miesegaes (pronounced Mee-zee-gas!) as High Sheriff of Warwickshire for 2019/20 took place in Court No. 1 at Shire Hall in Warwick on Thursday, 18th April 2019.

The Honourable Mrs Justice Whipple, DBE, High Court Judge, presided over the ceremony and other members of the Judiciary, including Warwickshire's Resident Judge, His Honour Judge Lockhart, QC, were present.

The Lord-Lieutenant, Mr Timothy Cox, read out The Royal Warrant.

Mr David Lodder was also confirmed as Under Sheriff and The Reverend Sarah Edmonds was appointed as The High Sheriff's Chaplain; Sarah is the Rector of St Edmund’s Shipston on Stour, Church of the Ascension Tidmington, All Saints’ Honington and St James’ Idlicote.

The High Sheriff is appointed by Her Majesty The Queen as her representative in the County on matters relating to law and order. 

Simon looks forward to continuing the excellent work performed by previous High Sheriffs in the following areas: 

  • To support all those people involved in protecting and promoting law and order in the County with particular reference to the Police, Ambulance, Fire Service and Armed Forces (Simon is a Reservist with 4624 Squadron at RAF Brize Norton);
  • To support the Judiciary to include the Judges, Magistrates, Coroners, Prison and Probations Service;
  • To support local charities within the County; and
  • To support schools in the County with visits planned to the 41 Secondary Schools 

Simon will be supporting a number of charities including Crimebeat as previous High Sheriffs of Warwickshire have done.  For more information please visit the “Charity” page.
