High Sheriff attending the Ceremony to swear in 7 new Magistrates at Stafford Crown Court

Having previously attended the swearing in of new Magistrates on the Family Division I was particularly pleased to be able to attend this occasion on the 28th March, when 7 new Magistrates were sworn on to the Staffordshire Bench, and delighted to meet the new Chair of the Stafford Bench Adrian Robinson JP.

The Magistracy is the bedrock of our British Justice system, and they too have been disrupted greatly by Covid over the past couple of years.

When thinking of JPs, I find that the very terms “Justice” and “Peace” have a particular resonance now, with war in Ukraine at the hands of the brutal Russian invaders, where there seems currently to be no justice and no immediate prospect of peace.
