OR London Lunch September 2018
Enjoying the OR Lunch at the Royal Thames Yacht Club in Knightsbridge.
On Thursday 6 September we held our annual OR London Lunch at the Royal Thames Yacht Club in Knightsbridge. This is the second time that the lunch has been held at this venue, and its stunning views across Hyde Park, looking glorious in the autumn sunshine, were enjoyed by all 40 ORs who attended the event. The group represented 4 decades at the school, and there was much conversation and laughter about the differences between the decades at the School, as well as the things that have not changed at all.
Roger Saunders, Chair of Council, gave a welcome speech, before introducing the Head of School, Talia Keller, who updated everyone on the fantastic progress the School has made over the past year. ORA President Ginny Stephen (de Trense, No.3, 1954 - 60) followed with a few words of welcome and thanks. The speeches were followed by lunch, and the menu was again delicious – with oak smoked salmon, followed by either chicken supreme or pea and mint risotto and finished with an orange and passion fruit custard tart.
The lunch is always a great opportunity to catch up with OR friends, or to make new ones, and we hope to see many more of you at next year's lunch.
