The Queen's representative in Ross-shire is keeping abreast of the times with an online presence that should make her the most accessible Lord Lieutenant yet.

In addition to allowing folk to keep track of her engagements, Janet Bowen also hopes her website will offer a simple forum for members of the public to nominate candidates for awards in recognition of good service. It's a simple idea which should serve its purpose and also help demystify the way the system works.


Ross-shire residents can now contact their Lord Lieutenant and keep track of her engagements by simply logging on and clicking on a new website.

Janet Bowen, Lord Lieutenant for Ross and Cromarty, Skye and Lochalsh is now online after launching the new website for the Lieutenancy in her area.

She was joined at last week's launch by web developer Rob Elliott and Deputy Lieutenant David Lockett.

Mrs Bowen said, "I am really pleased to have this easily accessible and easy to use website at http://www.lordlieutenant-rossandcromarty.org.uk available for the community to see what the Lieutenancy is doing in the area. "I am especially delighted with the photographs on the site, which will mean there will be a pictorial record of recent Royal visits as well as other events such as the delivery of a card from Her Majesty the Queen on the occasion of a Diamond wedding anniversary, 100th birthdays, cadets Beating the Retreat, Remembrance Day parades, the award of medals, Armed Forces Day celebrations, and so on."

She explained the website contains a simple history of the Lieutenancy and details of the current Vice Lord-Lieutenant and Deputy Lieutenants, their areas of responsibility and a contact form for feedback.

"I particularly hope that people will take advantage of the opportunity to nominate candidates for awards and recognition of service and good works they do within our community. There are so many unsung heroes and heroines who deserve recognition," she said.
