New Lord Lieutenant To Visit Islands

Lord Lieutenant Edward Bolitho

The new Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall, the Queen’s official representative in Cornwall and the Islands, is coming to Scilly in the spring.

Colonel Edward Bolitho has been invited following a chance encounter with the Council Chairman, Mike Hicks, who was introduced to him at a police cadet’s event in Camborne.

After their first meeting, Mike has told Councillors he feels he will hold the islands in the same regard of his predecessor, Lady Holborow.
