High Sheriff visits our team

Open Road Head Office staff were delighted to welcome the New High Sheriff of Essex, Mrs Julia Abel Smith, to our North Hill offices on 25th April.

Mrs Abel Smith met staff and was keen to learn about all of the work we do in supporting people with drug and alcohol addictions.  The High Sheriff’s brief is to promote law and order in the County. Mrs Abel Smith is therefore particularly interested in the work of the Colchester SOS Bus and she will be spending a night ‘on duty’ on the Bus in the coming weeks. Essex has had a High Sheriff since Domesday and Mrs Abel Smith is the 833rd to hold this post but only the sixth lady to be appointed.
