Fellows are invited to a drinks reception with Mrs Denise Patterson FRSA, High Sheriff of West Sussex. It will be chaired by Greg Slay, Fellowship Councillor.
High Sheriffs are appointed by the Queen through Warrant of the Privy Council: the post is an honorary one and the term of office lasts for the duration of the financial year. Denise was born on the Isle of Wight and schooled in West Sussex. After graduating from Oxford, she worked as a literary agent and later as a TV newsreader and presenter on Jersey where her husband of 30 years Harry Patterson FRSA (better known as thriller writer Jack Higgins) still lives. Denise has been involved with a range of community groups across Sussex including as a founder of the Sussex Community Foundation. She will talk about her current role as High Sheriff and how this chimes with RSA Fellowship and the RSA’s core change aim of Public Services and Communities.
The cost of this event is £8, and there will be drinks and canapes available. Please register your attendance by clicking 'Book now' at the top of this page.
