Serving Sark

The role of the Lieutenant-Governor is a varied one, not least because the Bailiwick of Guernsey is split into three separate jurisdictions: Guernsey, Alderney and Sark. 

Sark is perhaps the most complicated, being a self-governing jurisdiction with a degree of independence and a direct relationship to the Crown through the Seigneur. This relationship is brought to life by the Lieutenant-Governor who gets a crash course in Sark history, politics and culture on arrival in office and maintains a working relationship with the senior members of Chief Pleas throughout their time in office. 

The Lieutenant-Governor is spending a couple of days in the island this week, attending a number of meetings on various subjects and with a variety of people. His Excellency being very much of the opinion that it is good to have meetings online but it is even more important to make sure you get out into places when you can and meet with people in their own environment. Truthfully, he also really likes Sark, even with some of the particularly challenging boat trips he has taken over the past two years!
