"On behalf of all the members of our group who visited Highcliffe today, I would like to thank you all, and especially our two excellent guides, for making the outing so pleasurable.  Very few people had actually visited before and all were surprised how good it was.  I am sure they will return.  I have lived in the area for over 25 years . . . not sure why I haven't done it before!"
