Recognize this guy?  He’s Leon Unczur and yesterday he celebrated his first year anniversary serving as the Sheriff of Nottingham.

The modern day Sheriff’s role is a bit different than this guy:

Unlike old Bushel-Britches here, Sheriff Unczur’s roles focus less on extorting taxes from widow rabbits and dogs wearing full leg casts and more on tourism, cutting ribbons on new retail outlets and presumably posing for pictures with people who will then go post them ironically on the internet.

A complete list of Sheriff’s of Nottingham dating back to the 15th century reign of Henry the VIth can be found here.
