Unlike the High Sheriff, the role of High Steward does not change each year; the position is for life or at such time he/she feels that are unable to continue with the office.  Each has its own coat of arms which can be seen inside the Town Hall.High Steward

Historically, a High Steward would have been an eminent man, who was a medium of communication between the Crown, the government and the town.  In more modern terms he would have the ear of the king and government ministers and would "lobby" on behalf of the inhabitants of Wokingham.   This is not the case anymore although the High Steward today should still be an eminent man or woman, and should be someone who can get involved with all the people of note in the town.

The High Steward of Wokingham is Lucy Zeal who was appointed in 2018
