Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Juanita Brock) 31.10.2005 (Article Archived on 14.11.2005)
The St. Helena Herald will publish an article explaining what H. E. the Governor Mr. Clancy will be up to while in the UK.
Governor Clancy will depart St Helena on 19 November and will return to the Island on 13 January 2006 after attending meetings with stakeholders on Ascension and having overseas Christmas leave.
Governor Clancy needs to attend meetings with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and other stakeholders on Ascension, and this will involve him leaving St Helena on 19 November. A Deputy to Governor will be appointed but Governor Clancy will deal with St Helena business including the chairing of the Executive Council (by video link) until he takes some overseas Christmas leave beginning on 17 December. As well as participating in meetings the Governor will be able to meet for the first time and work with Michael Hill, the recently appointed Ascension Island Administrator.
The Governor has planned his leave broadly to coincide with the block leave period on St Helena and he returns to Ascension and St Helena on 6 and 13 January respectively.
Governor Clancy will leave St Helena again on 20 January on an official visit to Tristan da Cunha and will return to the Island on 1 March 2006 along with the First Lady, Mrs Claire Clancy.
