Prison Visit

Last day visit to prison for High Sheriff

Bishop Tony Porter is pictured with the High Sherriff of Nottingham, Graham Cartledge CBE DL and Governor of HMP Nottingham, David Bamford, on Graham’s last day in his post as High Sheriff. They spent the morning touring the prison, visiting staff and prisoners. “We have visited all the prisons together during Graham’s appointment – it is a great opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to staff and governors,” said Bishop Tony. “We have first-hand experience of what a demanding, professional job they do.” Graham added: “Tony has been my Chaplain and we have had a remarkable year, interacting with voluntary groups, being involved in the judicial process from court to release, and dealing with outcomes often in challenging circumstances.”
