The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has purchased a replacement flag car for the Governor. At no cost to SHG, the silver Jaguar XF replaces the present vehicle, which is now over four years old.
As the profile of St Helena continues to grow, and with the Airport opening in early 2016, more VIP visitors are expected to visit, making it more important that the Governor should have a reliable representational vehicle.
The new car is due to arrive on the RMS on Monday 31 March. The old Jaguar will be retained by SHG as a back-up vehicle for Plantation House and for occasional use by important visiting figures such as the Chief Justice.
