He occasionally served as Acting High Court Judge in the region in 2010.

In “welcoming Justice Redhead back to Nevis,” the Deputy Governor General “wished him well. “We hope that he would enjoy his stint with us here in Nevis,” he said.

The newly installed Justice, in his response, said he was grateful for the opportunity because the special love he had developed for the twin-island federation.

“It’s always a pleasure being in St. Kitts and Nevis. As a matter of fact, at one time I regarded St. Kitts-Nevis as my second home,” he said.

In 2009, Justice Redhead travelled to Nigeria, Ghana and Gambia on a United Nations Economic Organisation of West Africa State (ECOWAS) fact finding mission.
