Derek adds role of Coroner to a varied career

Derek Richards has taken the oaths of office as St Helena’s new coroner – after a career that has taken in a variety of jobs.

He has worked on Ascension, been a news reader at Radio St Helena, and run the island fire service, training in disaster management and investigations. He then moved to be head of the Public Works department at The Castle before leaving to do consultancy work – which led to a role as General Manager of Services at Solomon and Company.

In his spare time, he and wife Linda run the Island Images website, selling honey, jewellery and mosaics. The site also has details of their activities as amateur radio operators.
