On 6 October the West Country Branch had the pleasure of welcoming the new Governor of Queensland, HE The Hon Paul de Jersey, to Bath. As part of his introduction to the role he was visiting the UK with his wife and aid, being shown around by the Queensland Agent General, Ken Smith. Usually these visits do not extend beyond London, so we were delighted he agreed to spend a day in Bath to visit St Nicholas’ Church, The Memorial, attend a civic reception with the Chairman of BANES and the Mayor of Bath, dine at the Pump Room, visit the Guildhall and sign the visitor’s book.
