June Meeting – Judith Swann, Deputy Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire

June Meeting – Judith Swann, Deputy Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire

Members of Bingham Business Club were given an insight into the role of the Lord Lieutenant’s office by their guest speaker in June. Every county has its own Lord Lieutenant, Vice Lord Lieutenant, and a number of deputies. Commander Judith Swann, who lives in Bingham, is one of the Deputy Lieutenants for Nottinghamshire. The Lord-Lieutenant is the Queen’s personal representative in each county of the United Kingdom. Historically, the role was a military one, but it is today a largely ceremonial position. They are appointed by the Lord Lieutenant subject, Commander Swann said, to the Queen “not disapproving” of them. There is no official uniform for women deputies, but Commander Swann wears naval uniform on formal occasions. She also wears a badge of office. Commander Swann said the deputy lieutenants came from many walks of life, and represented the Queen at events that related to their particular areas of interest. She often undertakes duties involving children and young people, and is involved with the NSPCC. Commander Swann said one of the highlights of her term in office was escorting the Princess Royal when she attended a Townswomen’s Guild conference at Newark Town Hall in 2011.   Copy provided by Advertiser Media Group www.newarkadvertiser.co.uk Images provide by Buttercross...
