Summer Lunch 2022

At St Anne's College, Oxford
St Anne's College Oxford was founded in 1879 as a centre of learning and excellence, becoming a fully fledged Oxford College in 1952.

Hence in this year, the College rather nicely shares it's 70 year anniversary with Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, so when we met for our annual OOSO Summer Lunch it felt even more of a special occasion; and not least because it was our first 'face to face' indoors event for over two years.

We entertained thirty guests, sitting in a spacious dining hall seated with social distancing in mind, next to an open quad area with plenty of airy ventilation.

Head Chef, Ben Gibbons, prepared for us a three course lunch including a delicious soup starter, vegetarian or chicken main course and rhubarb crumble pud, with coffees and chocolates afterwards - all in all a fabulous lunch enjoyed by all.

It was an emotional occasion, meeting up with old friends and new, after such a long time in isolation from Covid. Nick gave us his ritual and rousing speech, lifting our spirits, reminding us why we have so much to live for, and to look forward to.

We raised our glasses to all those at the Churchill Hospital, expressing our sincerest gratitude and thanks for all their care and kindness.

The lunch was a great success and we thank everyone again for supporting OOSO.
