Her Majesty The Queen has approved the appointment of eleven new Deputy Lieutenants for the county of Norfolk.

Deputy Lieutenants support the work of the Lieutenancy and represent the Lord-Lieutenant at various events throughout the county.

Having been chosen on the basis of service already given, a Deputy Lieutenant will continue to serve the community both within and outside the framework of the Lieutenancy.

The Lord-Lieutenant, Lady Dannatt, commented: 

"I am delighted Her Majesty has confirmed these appointments. Norfolk is very lucky to have so many dedicated Deputy Lieutenants across the county and I am sure these new appointees will carry out their duties with equal distinction in the years ahead."

Among the group is Mr Nicholas Pratt, who is a farmer, landowner and agricultural contractor in Ryston, near Downham Market. He is a Trustee of King’s Lynn Minster and Norfolk Community Foundation, as well as other voluntary roles.  He was appointed High Sheriff of Norfolk in 2015-16.
