High Sheriff of Shropshire


The High Sheriff of Shropshire holds an Office of great antiquity.  Today, the High Sheriff has ceremonial functions, especially to do with the justice system, and is responsible (through the Under Sheriff) for the execution of High Court writs.

He or she undertakes a variety of voluntary work for the community, particularly connected with crime reduction.

The High Sheriff changes each April and duties of the Office cover the historic county of Shropshire, including the Borough of Telford and Wrekin.

The High Sheriff of Shropshire for 2018/2019 is Rhoderick Swire.  For more information and contact details, please follow the website link.

For more information on the ancient Office and traditions of High Sheriff, please follow the link to the High Sheriffs' Association website.
