The new Governor of Gibraltar, Vice Admiral Sir David Steel, has been busy getting to know the local facilities and meeting residents in the few weeks since taking up his post.

This week he made an official visit to the air terminal as part of his familiarisation programme, where he was greeted by the director, Terence Lopez, and members of the management team. He was taken on a guided tour of the different areas of the building and being briefed on how the different airport systems worked.

The next visit was to the Alameda Gardens, where he met some of the staff and, as a keen gardener, picked up some tips for the gardens at his new home, the Convent.
