Meeting at Glass Boat Restaurant

Chief Islander in Bristol

Report and photos from Richard Grundy

Chief Islander Ian Lavarello continued his 2018 UK trip on Monday 19th November when he travelled by train from Salisbury with Tristan Government Representative Chris Carnegy to meet Sue Blanchard-Williams, who has supported the Tristan Tourism Department linking with cruise ship companies, and Tristan Association Newsletter Editor Richard Grundy, who taught Ian on Tristan 1982-1985.

Over lunch at the Glass Boat restaurant on Bristol's Floating Harbour, the group enjoyed a lovely meal and had a wide ranging discussion of Tristan matters. Ian presented Sue with a Tristan plaque in recognition of her valued voluntary work for the island. Ian then travelled on to Manchester to re-join his relatives.
