The High Sheriffs across Berkshire and Oxfordshire were welcomed at Broadmoor Hospital to recognise the commendable contributions of staff with a special awards ceremony. The ceremony, held annually, serves as an opportunity to celebrate the unsung heroes who work tirelessly behind the scenes. Managers and senior leaders at the Hospital nominated 19 members of staff from a variety of backgrounds and professions, having demonstrated exceptional dedication and service.

High Sheriffs, traditionally appointed by the Monarch, serve as the ceremonial representatives of the Crown in their respective counties. Beyond their ceremonial duties, they actively engage with communities, support charitable causes, and promote social unity.
