Next High Sheriff named

Mary Case has been officially nominated as next year's Isle of Wight High Sheriff.

NEXT year’s Isle of Wight High Sheriff, Mary Case, was officially nominated at an ancient and traditional ceremony at London’s Royal Courts of Justice this week.

Mrs Case, 53, who lives at Limerstone Farm, Limerstone, is an award-winning beekeeper and a founder member of the Isle of Wight Farmers’ Market.

She will take up office next spring, following in the footsteps of the current Isle of Wight High Sheriff, Nick Hayward.

Question. Is this the same Mrs Mary Case who had 14 protected trees felled in a field in Freshwater to make way for development and as such has a criminal record?

Well done to Mrs Case. She has to be an improvement on the current yellow-livered varmint. I trust that by the time she takes up her appointment she will have grown a large moustache, have taken to chewing tobacco, and will have developed something of a Texan drawl. Otherwise I fear she will not garner the respect the position deserves, and the gangs of rustlers and outlaws hiding out on Chillerton down will continue to hold the Island in the grip of fear.

Congratulation Mrs Case on you Royal Appointment. NB: High Sheriffs receive no remuneration and no part of the expense of a High Sheriff’s year falls on the public purse.
