Farewell to the Pension Play Pen lunch


After nearly 12 years of monthly lunches, I have decided to discontinue the Pension Play Pension Lunch. There will be no lunch on Monday July 1st so please do not go to the Counting House.

12 years is a long time. It was Robert Gardner who suggested we had a monthly dining club and the first lunches were held upstairs in the Dining Room of the City University Club.

We switched to the Counting House later that in 2007 and they have been terrific hosts ever since. I’d like to thank the various managers and army of waiting staff who’ve looked after us over the years.

Recently we’ve seen a fall in numbers and though the discussions have been no less vigorous, I must admit to my becoming a little jaded.

So I’ve decided to knock the lunches on the head for the summer and consider whether we may launch new AgeWage lunches in the autumn! I’d like a new venue, perhaps the WeWork I work in in Moorgate. Any ideas to henry@agewage.com.

My biggest thanks are to you, the loyal Pension PlayPen lunchers who’ve been such a pleasure to each other and to me.

We will meet again!
