THE HIGH SHERIFFS' ANNUAL AWARDS

Welcome to the website of the High Sheriff of the Isle of Wight for 2017-2018. My name is Ben Rouse and my year in office commenced on April 10th 2017, when I was sworn in by His Honour Justice Peter Ralls QC at a Declaration ceremony held in the Durbar Room at Osborne House. I am honoured to be the High Sheriff this year and hope to prove myself a worthy recipient of the title by fully realising the opportunity it affords me to meet many of you and to help our Island community. Thank you in anticipation of your support throughout the year. I can be contacted at islandhighsheriff@rouseltd.co.uk
