Governor Rushbrook’s first official visit to Ascension Island

Governor Dr Philip Rushbrook will depart the Island on Saturday, 29 June 2019, for his first official visit to Ascension Island.

On the announcement of his appointment in December 2018, Governor Rushbrook committed to visiting Ascension as soon as possible. This visit in July 2019, two months after his inauguration is the realisation of that commitment, and reflects his role as Governor for all three territories.

During HE’s time on Ascension he will be involved in a number of meetings with Councillors, officials from Ascension Island Government and representatives from the employing organisations.

Governor Rushbrook will return to St Helena on Saturday, 13 July. During HE’s absence, Chief Secretary, Susan O’Bey, will be Acting Governor while the Governor is in transit from St Helena to Ascension (via the UK), she will then revert to Governor’s Deputy while the Governor is on Ascension Island.
