1. Inaugural reunion & impromptu luncheon

After a successful first meeting at the Rose & Crown in Wimbledon Village, SW16 during one weekday evening in June 2003, just prior to action on Centre Court, further gatherings followed. We would meet three or four times a year in various City of London locations.

Meanwhile, one OH who had long since emigrated to South Africa just happened to be visiting the UK on business in March 2004.  He wanted to invite as many fellow OHs to join him for lunch in London.  Having thus established the first OHiL lunchtime meeting in a City wine bar called The City Boot, the idea caught on because we have been staging regular buffet luncheons ever since.  They are now held twice yearly in the spring and autumn.
