Lord-Lieutenant's NHS and Hospice Wish Lists Appeal

The Lord-Lieutenant discussed with the Chairs of the East and North and the West Herts NHS trusts together with the PAH trust in Harlow (which covers a large part of East Hertfordshire) and asked for their wish lists of most needed items, and he has now included the wish lists from the eight Hospices serving Hertfordshire.

Thank you for your much-needed support.

The Lieutenancy of Hertfordshire

Welcome to the Hertfordshire Lieutenancy. This website seeks to inform and update you on the role of our Lord-Lieutenant, Mr Robert Voss CBE, and the ways in which the Lieutenancy supports and impacts on the life of this county. Hertfordshire is a vibrant, dynamic yet diverse county whose motto is: “Trust and Fear Not”.

Lord Lieutenants were first appointed by King Henry VIII in the 1500s to assume the military duties of the Sheriff. Today, the Queen appoints Lord Lieutenants, on the advice of the Prime Minister, to be her representative in their counties. Her Majesty The Queen appointed Mr Robert Voss CBE as her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of the County of Hertfordshire to succeed The Countess of Verulam who stepped down on 31 July 2017.

The Lord-Lieutenant upholds the dignity of the Crown and serves the community. Supported by the Vice Lord-Lieutenant and by other Deputy Lieutenants, Robert Voss is the main link between the Monarch and her people in the county.

Robert Voss gives his time voluntarily to the role and helps promote and encourage voluntary and charitable organisations, local businesses, arrange visits from the Royal Family, attend civic and social activities, support the work with the Armed Forces, take part in the honours’ system and appoint appropriate Vice and Deputy Lieutenants.

You are invited to use this website to familiarise yourself with the workings of the Hertfordshire Lieutenancy and the way in which it can act as a conduit for you to the Royal Family, the Honours System, Queen’s Awards and congratulatory messages.

The Lord-Lieutenant’s mission statement is: To take the Lieutenancy to the people of Hertfordshire.

So sorry for everyone who was supposed to enjoy this afternoon’s Garden Party at Buckingham Palace recognising the wonderful work in your communities. I shall be driving past #Hertfordshire invitee Dave “Mr Christmas” Edwards enjoying his own Garden Party in his front garden.

A lovely bank holiday to enjoy a walk in the beautiful #Hertfordshire countryside. Whilst keeping in mind those suffering and those on the front line risking their lives to save ours-enjoying beauty around us is still one of life’s privileges. ⁦@NHSuk⁩ ⁦@hospiceuk⁩

Thank you @HertsPolice. This is such a serious concern-even more so in these difficult times. We should all be aware of any signs. Support charities like @HertsCommunity #domesticviolenceawareness
