Invitations to the Lord-Lieutenant

The Lord-Lieutenant accepted an invitation to attend the 2019 Surrey Poppy Appeal Launch event, held at The Lightbox, Woking.

The Lord-Lieutenant is always pleased to be invited to visit organisations in Surrey – voluntary, statutory, or business. 

Invitations should be sent to him via the Deputy Clerk to the Lieutenancy, Mrs Caroline Breckell MVO DL, Lieutenancy Office, Estate Office, Loseley Park, Guildford, Surrey GU3 1HS; 020 8541 9127; email

Sadly the Lord-Lieutenant is not able to accept all invitations, because of volume and time constraints. If that is the case and you receive a refusal, you may wish to ask the Deputy Clerk to the Lieutenancy if it is possible to arrange for the Vice Lord-Lieutenant or a Deputy Lieutenant (DL) to attend on behalf of the Lord-Lieutenant. The Vice Lord-Lieutenant or DL should then be accorded the precedence due to the Lord-Lieutenant; the Deputy Clerk can advise you on this.
