New Zealand’s High Commissioner to the UK

Blackadders to merge with Plenderleath Runcie

Chairman Scott Williamson and our resident New Zealander Jordan Brannigan (Office Administrator) were honoured to be invited to a breakfast meeting with New Zealand’s High Commissioner to the UK, Sir Jerry Mateparae.

This was a great opportunity for the High Commissioner to give an overview and update of New Zealand’s relationship with the UK, including Scotland. It was also a special and important part of continuing Blackadders relationship as the home of the New Zealand Consulate in Scotland.
