The Governor's Office on Montserrat recently announced that UK Policy Adviser to His Excellency the Governor and Head of the Governor’s office, Mr Tony Bates, and his wife, Colette, will be leaving Montserrat at the end of May. Their departure is taking place slightly earlier than originally planned (late July).

The Governor's Office has stated that Tony’s early departure is for personal reasons which are not connected to his position in Montserrat.

On his departure, Bates said:

“I am sorry that Colette’s and my departure from Montserrat has come slightly sooner than we had wished. Living and working in Montserrat has been a fantastic experience and we have met, worked with and socialised with some wonderful people. We will miss them all and wish to thank them for their help, support and good company. We have seen and done some amazing things. Montserrat will forever be in our hearts and we look forward to returning on holiday in the future.”

Tony’s successor and arrival plans will be announced in due course according to a release from the Governor's Office.
