Buffet Lunch at New Hall

Wednesday, 21st November, 2001

November is a busy month in Japan but nonetheless a goodly number of members (28) graced the Society's lunch on the 21st held in the New Hall of the British Embassy. Also present were a few guests (5) and, very happily, two "returnees", Mr Martin Blakeway (Trinity, Cambridge) and Mr John Brodie (Christ Church, Oxford). It was a brilliant late autumn day outside and within both wine and conversation flowed. Jane Cooke produced one of her excellent lunches (good English fare, though a lasagna lurked and at which Ms Doreen Simmons [Girton, Cambridge] was seen looking suspiciously). Mr Stuart Jack (Merton, Oxford) welcomed new members (Dr Geynor Sekimori [Darwin, Cambridge], Mr Clement Tam [St Edmund Hall, Oxford], and Dr Francesco Stajano [St John's Cambridge]), and Mr Teruhisa Nakamura (Worcester, Oxford) told us of treats to come. All most enjoyable. The secretaries are to be thanked most warmly for arranging yet another jolly function, and indeed for all their hard work for members.

Hugh David Turner (Christ's, Cambridge)
