Welcoming Jamaica’s New UK Ambassador

Mr Hon Burchell Whiteman introduces himself

My excellent colleague Cllr Afzal Akram and I attended a lovely local reception at the offices of Sedgwicks International on Lea Bridge Road, a couple of weeks back, to welcome Mr Burchell Whiteman, Jamaica’s new Ambassador to the UK.

Key representatives of London’s Caribbean community turned out in force to welcome the new Ambassador. It was lovely to catch up with rising political star Flloyd Millen (pictured far left in a yellow tie).

With the Hon Burchell Whiteman

After several of the church pastors gathered led a prayer for Mr Whiteman, I got to have a chat with a little chat with him and welcome him to Britain. He told me that he’s really happy to have been posted to Britain and is looking forward to promoting the Jamaican diaspora, as well as strengthening Jamaica’s links with other Caribbean communities, here in the UK.

Welcome again to Britain, Mr Whiteman!

I wish you every success during your time here!
