As the representative of Her Majesty The Queen in the West Midlands, I would like to thank you for your contribution you have made to the County during the extraordinary and difficult times.
No matter how large or small, the innovation, collaboration, humanity and selfless service shown by so many across the region during the COVID-19 pandemic has been truly inspiring.
John Crabtree OBE
Lord-Lieutenant of the West Midlands
The Lord-Lieutenant is Her Majesty The Queen’s representative in the West Midlands and his first and foremost duty is to uphold the dignity of the Crown.
Following the example of The Queen, he seeks to promote a good atmosphere and spirit of co-operation by the encouragement he gives to voluntary service, and too benevolent organisations, and by the interest he takes in the business, industrial and social life of his county and the voluntary activity that goes on in the region.
