Farewell Reception For British Honorary Consul

British High Commissioner Howard Drake has thanked outgoing British Honorary Consul Peter Young for his many years “outstanding service” and invaluable contribution to both the British Government and the Bahamas.

He made his comments at a farewell reception that he hosted for Mr Young at the Breezes Hotel on Monday night. He also welcomed Mr Young’s successor, Mrs Rosamund Roberts.

“Peter,” said Mr Howard, “is of the old school and it’s been a pleasure dealing with him. In all his years, I have been struck by how professional and how committed he is to providing the service that he is here for. He has been a great servant for us. He has really done his country proud.”

In congratulating Mrs Rosamund Roberts, who was appointed British Honorary Consul on December 1, Mr Young said she was “absolutely the ideal person to take over this job.”
