High Sheriff jumps in the saddle to showcase Warwickshire

Leamington Editorial 5th Oct, 2021   0

THE HIGH Sheriff of Warwickshire got on her bike this week to showcase the county.

Min Willoughby de Broke completed a 200 mile plus pedal across the length and breadth of Warwickshire during her Big Bike Ride.

She wanted to highlight the “incredible people, organisations and independent businesses that make Warwickshire the best it can be to live, work and visit”.

And she was also looking raise £10,000 for the High Sheriff’s Fund, established to hand-out grants to the many small voluntary and community organisations operating at a grassroots level in Warwickshire.

Lady Willoughby de Broke, said: “I knew that when I became High Sheriff that I wanted to do something big, something that would challenge myself while shining a light on all the amazing businesses and organisations that contribute to making Warwickshire the best it can be!

Coun Izzi Seccombe, leader of Warwickshire County Council, said: “We are so fortunate that we live in Warwickshire, a county with a wide array of outstanding natural beauty and equally outstanding organisations, independent businesses and communities who all work tirelessly together to make this county the best it can be.

“We are equally lucky to have such a passionate – and no less tireless – High Sheriff, in Min, who has dedicated her tenure in the role to raising the profile of all the different elements that make our County such an incredible place to live, work, play and visit.”
