On October 15 2015, the Laubespin-Lagarde Fund is organising a study day at the Château de Freÿr. It will be a marvellous opportunity to discover the results of archaeological excavations as well as research into the estate’s rare orange trees.

Thanks to several funds managed by the King Baudouin Foundation, the stained-glass window by Léon d’Oultres, considered as one of the most beautiful in Belgium, has regained its brilliance of yesteryear.

The Raoul and Margaretha Kok-Krahé Fund has provided support for the acquisition of the Den Rooy nature reserve at Hoogstraten as well as land through which flow the River Merkske and the River Mark.
