Governor gets new offices

Governor Bruce Dinwiddy on Tuesday held an open house reception to mark the move into his new offices at the Aall Building on North Church Street.

The offices, located on the fourth floor of the building, offer staff a bird’s-eye view of the George Town Royal Watler new cruise ship terminal.

At the informal reception, the Governor and staff greeted invited guests and took them on a tour of the new offices.

Speaking about the move, Mr. Dinwiddy said, ‘The real reason was that we needed more accommodations.’

He said the Governor’s offices had expanded over the years and they just did not have enough space at the Glass House.

On the subject of the fire safety issue at the Glass House, Mr. Dinwiddy said he was pleased to hear that measures were being taken to improve the situation.

He added the offices would be utilised until new Governor’s accommodations were built into which the governor’s offices would be reabsorbed.

He said he felt he was lucky to have such a wonder view overlooking the water.

Mr. Dinwiddy, who will be leaving office sometime in October for England, said that the new Governor Mr. Stuart Jack, who arrives later in the year, would occupy the new offices.
