The achievements of a large group of industrious people have been recognised at a reception hosted by the acting governor at Government House.

Sandra Tyler-Haywood presented certificates to people from Stanley and Mount Pleasant for a diverse array of qualifications they had obtained, from employment law to powerboat driving. Their studies were conducted through the Falkland Islands Government Training Centre under the leadership of Mrs Eileen Davies.

Mrs Tyler-Haywood praised the students’ wise use of time for education towards a better future and said their efforts made her feel lazy by comparison.
