The High Sheriff's Cadet

Alfie Kingston

The High Sheriff’s Cadet in Northamptonshire is drawn from the Northamptonshire Emergency Services Cadets. The Cadet assists the High Sheriff during the year in office, may act as a Sword Bearer to the High Sheriff at ceremonial events and will also accompany the High Sheriff to other engagements in the County.

Alfie Kingston was last month selected to become the High Sheriff of Northamptonshire’s Emergency Services Cadet for 2020 / 2021. Alfie has been a Northamptonshire Emergency Services cadet since 2018 attending the Northampton unit.

Alfie was nominated for the role by his Unit Commander who said “ Throughout his time with NESC, cadets and leaders noted his growth in confidence and willingness to get involved. Alfie is always keen to assist in operational tasks and community events and he is a real asset to any event. “

At Northampton Pride in 2019, Alfie was interviewed by Inspiration FM and his interview was later broadcast on radio where Alfie presented himself as a confident young man with tolerance and respect for all. Recognising his potential, Alfie was approached by leaders to be a representative of the Northampton Unit of NESC on Northampton Borough Council’s Youth Forum. The forum regularly meet with Northampton Borough Council officers and councillors to give feedback on the way services for young people are organised in the town.

When Alfie heard that he had been successful at interview, he said “Thank you so much! Thanks for the opportunity - it was my birthday yesterday so this is a great present!”
