Georgina  was High Sheriff of Norfolk for 2012 to 2012 which is a non-political role, appointed by the Queen as has traditionally been
done since Saxon times.

The principal duties of High Sheriffs include attendance at royal visits in the County and support for Her Majesty’s High Court Judges when on Circuit. She played an active and supportive role with the Police and emergency services and in lending encouragement to the probation and prison services.

Georgina highlighted the work of Leeway who offer advice, support and information to those experiencing domestic violence.

Male High Sheriffs wear “Court Dress” and Georgina was keen to follow the Court Dress as much as possible.  She made her outfit herself, incorporating her Grandmother’s lace in the jabot and a bright pink  lining in the velvet jacket!
