At the invitation of Head Teacher, Mrs Claire Belk, Veronica and I attended an assembly at Bellan House, a pre-prep school in Oswestry, which our own children attended 20 years ago. We were very warmly welcomed by Mrs Belk and her staff, and were delighted to see that the school still retained the very happy atmosphere that it had 20 years ago. I gave a brief talk on the role of the High Sheriff and then answered questions on all aspects of the post, including the inevitable question regarding the number of people I had beheaded with my sword! We both came away very impressed with the wide variety of penetrating questions and comments made by the children.
