Council welcomes High Sheriff of Derbyshire in visit to the Authority

The High Sheriff of Derbyshire, William Burlington, visited North East Derbyshire District Council’s main offices at Mill Lane in Wingerworth on 24 January 2020.

The High Sheriff met elected Members and talked to staff at the Council so that he could see for himself how the Council works and the services it provides.

The High Sheriff heard directly from departments within the Authority about all the hard work which goes in to delivering the wide range of high quality services that the Council provides to local people and businesses in the District.

As part of his visit, the High Sheriff met the Vice Chair of the Council, Councillor Pat Antcliff and the Leader of the Council, Councillor Martin Thacker MBE.

Councillor Thacker presented the High Sheriff with the Council’s civic plate to commemorate his visit.

Commenting after the visit, Councillor Thacker said: “It was a tremendous honour to have the High Sheriff visit the Council today. As the Queen’s senior representative on law and order matters in the County of Derbyshire, he was particularly interested to see just how effective we have been in taking enforcement action against those who have committed fly tipping in our District.

The High Sheriff met with both staff and elected Members from across the Council, seeing for himself the hard work and dedication we put in to provide high quality services for our residents and businesses.”
