My meeting with the NZ High Commissioner (updated for 2015)

In 2012 we went to the NZ High Commission, situated in none other than NZ House to meet the Derek Leask - the High Commissioner to London at that time. (now currently looked after by the very able Sir Lockwood Smith) - for a cup of coffee and a chat to fill him in on the event.

It was a good meeting as I got to hear about the good work our high commission gets up to while here in London, especially in regards to immigration. I know most of you understand that the Visa rule changes for us coming to the UK have been sometimes frustrating - however they have been working hard on this to make life easier for us!

I asked for some words of wisdom from them to share with you all and they responded with: "The New Zealand High Commission in London supports a responsible, safe and respectful celebration by the New Zealand community in London to honour the occasion."

Lets try and keep to the spirit of these words!  If I have any update from Sir Lockwood, I will let you know!
