The Lord-Lieutenant is asked to welcome all new citizens to the County, to remind them of not only their rights and priviledges, but also their responsibility to play their part in our community and society.
The Lieutenancy in East Sussex

East Sussex is a beautiful County with a rich history. Its citizens are friendly and welcoming, but we do have areas of deprivation and we all need support from time to time. If you live in our County, whether it be in the city and urban environment or in a rural area I would like to urge you to get involved, by volunteering if you can or by taking an active part in whatever way is appropriate for you to enhance both our environment and the lives of those who live in it.
