We are in the midst of a big thaw following the heaviest snow falls the UK has seen in a very long time. Brockwood was more or less completely cut off from the rest of the world, but then generations of students have complained about this even without the snow; no doubt you will recall! I hope the festive season has gone well for you and that the New Year offers some promise of continuing in the same manner.
If you have had a chance to read the Autumn/Winter issue of The Observer, you may have seen that I have plans to visit the U.S. in March. I am doing this in order to meet with alumni and to visit US colleges and universities. While still not finalized, my itinerary looks as though it will and take me to California in the first week of March; to New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in the second; and to Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont in the third.
