The new Governor of St Helena, Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha, Dr Philip Rushbrook, accompanied by his wife Janis, will arrive on St Helena on Saturday, 11 May 2019, and will be officially sworn in the same day. Dr Rushbrook will be the first Governor to arrive by air at St Helena Airport.
It has previously been announced that Dr Rushbrook would arrive on Saturday, 4 May, the same day that Governor Lisa departs the Island. However, Dr Rushbrook will now arrive a week later to enable the Administration to better manage the farewell arrangements for Governor Lisa and finalise arrangements for the inauguration of Dr Rushbrook.
Further details on the inauguration of the new Governor will issue in due course.
