The Governor has a full programme and will be meeting with the Island Council, the Administration, Ovenstone, CTBTO and other members of the community. There will be a whole community event on the evening of 21st March.

The visit has been facilitated by an additional charter of the MFV Edinburgh to Tristan to resupply the cruise ship National Geographic Explorer. The Governor and his wife will then join the Explorer for the voyage to its next destination, St Helena.

Governor Phillips said 'I am delighted that this opportunity has presented itself and particularly pleased I will be able to visit Tristan da Cunha in the early part of my tenure. I am looking forward to meeting the Island Council and the wider community to discuss the challenges and opportunities the Island is facing'.
