The Baron and Lady were very warm welcomed by members of the local community. It was a great honour to be well received for the second time.                                                                                                  They had a private invitation to Galhampton Manor, the beautiful seat of the Buxton family. James Buxton has guided Jörg and Regina through the lovely villages of North Cadbury, South Cadbury, Galhampton and also Yarlington with all the famous medieval houses and churches.

James and his wife Margie have also organised a visit of the world-famous Stourhead Gardens with its great Palladian mansion in the county of Wiltshire.                                                                                                                        

Robin Russell, Chairman of the North Cadbury Village Hall Committee, has given an overview over the progress of the refurbishment works of the Village Hall. Together with his wife Pauline they made a journey to the historic city of Sherborne in Dorset. A special attraction was the visit of Sherborne Abbey.                                                                     The Baron and Baroness enjoyed these two wonderful days in North Cadbury, in the countryside of Somerset and the nearby places in the counties of Dorset and Wiltshire.                

Jörg and Regina give their cordially thanks to all the abovementioned people which were involved in this excellent and very impressive visit and for all their hospitality and generosity. A particulary thanks goes to Mike and Jane Martin for their generosity, hospitality and to provide accomodation at the Registry House.
