Governor Ric Todd will make his final visit to the islands of North and Middle Caicos on Thursday, 29 August 2013 ahead of his departure in September.
Governor Ric Todd
Although TCI has more than 40 islands or cays, there are six populated family islands. Todd made it a key aim of his tenure to move beyond the capital on Grand Turk and the most populous island, Providenciales, to see for himself what are known in TCI as the family islands of North and Middle Caicos, South Caicos and Salt Cay. He does so to ensure that he better understands the needs of people living on the more outlying islands.
He will be accompanied on his visit by TCI government District Commissioner Donna Gardiner and Senior Administrative Officer, Tueton Williams.
His visit will include:
• Inspecting of the works to repair the Middle Caicos Causeway with Roger Harvey of Public Works
• Visiting Middle Caicos Clinic
• Holding a public Town Hall Meeting at Conch Bar Community Centre at 11.30am-12.30pm
• Visiting the historic Wades Green Plantation site for the first time
Todd leaves the TCI to take up a new diplomatic posting in September, with Peter Beckingham being sworn in as the new governor of the TCI in October.
