The objective was to create a social dining club for building friendships between its members and their families. Other founding members were Henry Cotterell, Tony Lamb, Alan Anderson and Harold Purchase.
The Club has maintained this objective over six decades, with a summer guest lunch or dinner, walking weekends, visits to the opera and an annual Croquet Day supplementing the more usual evening dinners.
The Outward Bound walking weekends, which started in 1965, are particularly successful in supporting the Club's aims of promoting friendships between the members and their families. Having walked in the Lake District, in 2006 the Club responded to the Faculty's 150th Anniversary challenge and put actuaries on at least two Munros.
