It is with great sadness that BISB has learned that Britain’s deputy ambassador to Hungary, Steven Dick, has died in Budapest after contracting coronavirus. Steven, who was 37, died on Tuesday, according to a Foreign Office statement on Wednesday afternoon.
Steven arrived in Budapest to take over from his predecessor, Caitlin Jones, who was a good friend of BISB, and he was due to visit our school next week. Tributes are being paid to this kind, funny, generous man and outstanding diplomat and linguist. Our thoughts are with his friends and family, and condolences have been sent on behalf of our school community through the British Embassy.
