Jonathan the 184 year old Tortoise who has lived at Plantation House for the last few decades could hardly wait for Governor Capes to depart St Helena last week before he could get his first bath by Dr Jo Collins.

Jonathan’s bath was such an occasion that even the UK Sun newspaper who is well known for the reporting of unusual life stories also published a story about Jonathans happy occasion.

The Story also mentions that Jonathan was having a bath ready for a very special Royal visit in the next few months.

The story was written by Dan Sailes and was published at 1600 on the 22 March 2016.
