I SEEK YOUR LEAVE TO RETIRE.

With these words, Governor-General Sir Elliott Belgrave, whom many consider to be the one with the common touch, yesterday officially began his last week in the island’s top post.

Sir Elliott demits office on Saturday after five years as Governor General.

During those years, he has shared jokes and laughter with scores of centenarians, interacted with students from every primary school on the island, including his beloved Boscobel Primary School which he visited twice, and recently started the Elliott And Loretta Belgrave Scholarship Trust to help needy, deserving students with their tuition fees in specialised areas at the Cave Hill campus at the University of the West Indies.
