2014 City Lunch Review

2014 City Lunch Review

Thursday 6th March 2014 was the date set for the now well established City Lunch event – held for the 3rd year in succession at the excellent Vivat Bacchus in Hays Lane near London Bridge.

50 Worthians and 4 honorary guests tucked into some tasty steaks and chocolate puddings, whilst renewing old friendships, catching up with news and gossip, and even trying out a bit of networking with old boys from 5 decades of Worth. The most senior on parade was James Wheeler (C’68) and we had a very good cross section of ages, right up to Ibrahim Sami (C’12).

There was also the usual mix of different professions – lawyers, bankers and property tycoons, but still only one Monk and one Jeweller.

We were able to welcome Father Stephen as a guest, and were delighted to welcome Abbot Luke (C’71) to the event for the first time. We were also entertained – and informed – by Nick Butterworth in his last speech to the City Lunch as Chairman of the Society. His enthusiasm and commitment to all things Worth is one of the reasons this – and many other events – are so successful.   New Chairman Jeremy Fletcher was unable to attend, but we look forward to seeing him, and hopefully some Worthian girls, next year.

Everyone was also able to meet our wonderful new Society Manager, Mary Lou Burge, to whom many thanks must go for helping to organise and run the event.
