We had our annual Spring KIT gathering in dry, sunny – though occasionally windy weather when out onthe top balcony above the beautifully flowering Wisteria. There were over twenty-five of us, so the earlygreet and meet period was slightly chaotic. We all brought picnic and salad food, and Andy and Gudrunhad organised the crockery, cutlery and drinks, with boiling water on tap. We had lunch first, then went down to the burial ground which had been beautifully spring weeded andthe grass cut by a group of Bruderhof youth before Easter. Each grave was a blaze of colour, with littlecandles on the nameplates. We also wandered around the parkland area, enjoying the many small spring

flowers, as well as the different showy exotic-coloured azaleas and white and pink magnolias,rhododendrons and the handkerchief tree with its large white suspended bracts. When I lived at Bulstrodefifty years ago, there were apparently only half a dozen specimens in the whole of the United Kingdom,as it is said to be quite difficult to cultivate.There was some discussion about the Klaashof KIT weekend in Germany to take place in August. Wewere fortunate to have Anthony and his wife Rita – part of the organising team – who joined us beforereturning to their home.I’m looking forward to meeting many more people from the 8th to the 11th August at Klaashof,Germany.Many thanks to Andy and Gudrun, who liaised with W.E.C., the Bulstrode Estate owners, to have thisregular KIT day there.

Half past eleven, Beaconsfield at last, then past Jordans, the Bell Hotel, and up thedrive to Bulstrode. Gordon has never been before. I saw it through different eyes thistime. I lived here, this was my home.Unreal! We parked in the large circle at the frontand entered the main building through the big heavy wooden doors. I showed Gordonthe “Blue Room” to the right of thereception area. This was my bedroom, withthe round, windowed alcove, light and airy;what a lovely room. Back into the hall with its pillars and thewide staircase, then on to the dining roomwith the sash windows giving access to thecovered veranda with pillars, and wooden tables and benches in the sunshine.There were already many there, and ahuge selection of food, each having brought a contribution. So good to meet oldfriends, as well as new; some, like me, had brought their partners along too.Then my phone rang – it was a Germannumber. Anthony!“How do I get into Bulstrode?” he said. Wow, he's coming, but has got lost! “Where are you?” I asked. “At the front door – its locked!”He’s here! “Go through the little iron gate over tothe right, I’m coming to meet you.”Rita called out: “Surprise!”Anthony had always wanted to seeBulstrode in daylight. He never lived there,

and had only visited at night. We walked roundthe house past the sunken garden, the tower, andlooked up the avenue. Then round to theveranda with the view over the lawns to thetrees near the burial ground. After greetings,eating, chatting, sharing photos etc, it was timefor a walk around the park and to the burialground. Whilst there, a young couple came inthrough the gate. John asked who they were,they asked who he was! He told them he wasJohn Holland and used to live here. They toldhim they were students with W.E.C. He wasAmerican, and she was German. She had readthe Bulstrode history about the Bruderhof.Being a German word, she was curious. So Johntold them about us and our reunion, and a bitabout the Bruderhof history. Amazing!It is lovely that the staff and residents of Bulstrode always make us so welcome. All too soon it was time to leave. Goodbye till next time. I look forward to our next visit.

It was another very good gathering. People just turn up as and when they want, which is good, sonobody needs to feel under any sort of pressure, and they can also leave when they want.We were extremely lucky with the weather. It rained the whole day before, and again early on theSaturday we met, and we had some showers again driving home. But while we were there it was dry withsome sunny periods, which is nice be-cause it means we can be outside by theveranda, and also many of us like to godown to the burial ground and some gowalking in the park. The park is beautiful at this time of year. There always seem to be some plants and trees flowering, it is really avery special park with all sorts of treesand plants, with laid out paths, so if youlike that as well as meeting people thencome next year.We had a good number of peopleagain. It is really interesting to meet many people. Some are always new to me, someare old friends, and some go back to theold days at Wheathill. The people there at W.E.C. are ever sohospitable and friendly, and really go out of their way to make us feel welcome. We had avoluntary collection so I could give them £61.50at the end as a thank you. They do appreciate it. One or two of the group also took some
