High Sheriff of Kent visits St Peters

Image representing  from St Peter's Village Tour

Specially invited guest of St Peter’s Village Tour, John Weir, was officially appointed by the Queen as the High Sheriff of Kent in April this year. The High Sheriff is the oldest secular office under the Crown.[1] Formerly the high sheriff was the principal law enforcement officer in the county but over the centuries most of the responsibilities associated with the post have been transferred elsewhere, so that its functions are now largely ceremonial. The High Sheriff is photographed with his wife Beverley, the Mayor and Mayoress of Broadstairs and St Peters, Paul Moore and his wife Wendy and on the far left of the photo, Amanda Cottrell OBE, Patron of St Peter’s Village Tour. 

Other invited guests included the Rev. Jan Durrans, vicar of St Peters. 

St Peter’s Village Tour is created by a team of over one hundred volunteers who since 1995 have entertained the public with a series of vignettes illustrating the historic events associated with St Peters over the centuries. The tour is conducted in 5 groups of 6 visitors setting off at five-minute intervals and covers less than a mile of flat walking, but does involve standing for a number of five- minute presentations.  It includes a break for tea or coffee.  At the end of the tour you are invited to contribute towards Tour costs which average £4 per adult. Booking is essential on all the tours, for online reservations visit: villagetour.org.uk.
