Sutton Coldfield Civic Service & Appointment of High Steward – Sunday 9th June 2024

It was a pleasure to attend the Sutton Coldfield Civic Service as High Sheriff of the West Midlands, a momentous occasion where I witnessed the appointment of the new High Steward of Sutton Coldfield. The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield is steeped in history and tradition, and the forthcoming five hundredth anniversary in 2028 of the Charter provides us with an opportunity to celebrate our rich heritage.
The re-establishment of the High Steward position is a symbolic gesture that reinforces the importance of honouring those who have made significant contributions to the Royal Town. The appointment of The Rt. Hon. the Lord Fowler as the High Steward on 21 May 2024 is a testament to his dedication and service to our community.
Congratulations to The Rt. Hon. the Lord Fowler on his appointment as the High Steward, and may his tenure bring prosperity and unity to Sutton Coldfield.
It was great to see my High Sheriff Chaplain Rev Canon Becky Stephens and Deputy Lieutenant Nasir Awan at the Service.
