We are proud to announce that The Queen has appointed the Countess Howe DL, the Chairman of Heart of Bucks, as Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire.

The Countess Howe DL will succeed Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher Bt KCVO when he steps down from the position in November 2020.

Elizabeth Howe is embedded in the community life of Buckinghamshire, being involved with a number of local charities and causes, including her work as Patron of Milton Keynes Islamic Art, Heritage and Culture (MKIAC), President of The Epilepsy Society and President of Amersham Band, amongst many others. Her professional background is in education which is reflected in her commitment to schools and young people.

She supports the county Honours and Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service Committees, in addition to being a Commander (Sister) of the Order of St John and a member of the County Priory Group having completed her term as President.

Elizabeth Howe was appointed as a Deputy Lieutenant in 1995 and as High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire for the year 2010/11.

We are delighted to share this news and extend our congratulations to our wonderful Chairman.
