Invitations to the Lord-Lieutenant
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 Assistant Clerk to the Lieutenancy, Mrs Caroline Breckell MVO DL, Lieutenancy Office, County Hall, Penrhyn Road, Kingston-upon-Thames, KT1 2DN; 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 Assistant 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 Assistant Clerk can advise you on this.
