New Deputy Lieutenants for Norfolk announced

29 June 2020

Her Majesty The Queen has approved the appointment of two new Deputy Lieutenants for the county of Norfolk.

Deputy Lieutenants support the work of the Lieutenancy and represent the Lord-Lieutenant at various events throughout the county. Having been chosen on the basis of service already given, a Deputy Lieutenant will continue to serve the community both within and outside the framework of the Lieutenancy. Their post nominals are DL.

The Lord-Lieutenant, Lady Dannatt commented: “I am genuinely thrilled to have Clare and James join the Lieutenancy and I know Norfolk will not only be delighted, but will benefit enormously from their appointment. They both continue to have so much to offer and will bring real energy, drive and commitment to the role, which is what I prize above all else."

Lady Agnew (Clare) lives near Great Yarmouth. She was born in Cley windmill and raised in East Norfolk before moving to London for several years. For the last 12 years Clare has been advising for the Citizens Advice Bureau in Norwich (and subsequently Stalham and Mitcham) and is on their Development Board. She is on the Advisory Council (and until recently trustee) of the Norfolk Churches Trust, managing three Stately Car Boot sales and many other fundraising events for them. She is Patron of Norfolk Home-Start, Centre 81, Winterton Marine Cadets and a trustee of Community Chaplaincy Norfolk. During the coronavirus crisis she is volunteering for the Great Yarmouth Foodbank. Clare was High Sheriff in 2019/20.

Mr James Bagge was commissioned into the Blues and Royals regiment serving in Windsor, Cyprus, Northern Ireland and finally as an ADC to the Governor of South Australia. Now residing in West Norfolk, he is Chairman of the Norfolk Citizens Advice Development Committee working to raise the charity’s profile and is patron of two youth projects in West Norfolk. He is the promoter of Walking4Norfolk, which raises money for voluntary organisations in Norfolk care for the unpaid carers. James was High Sheriff in 2017/18.
