100 Club

The October OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The White Hart at Roydon near Diss and this month’s winners were:-

Flossie Foulis-Brown [Parrot] – resident of Bramley, Hampshire
Sheila Forde - resident of Framlingham Earl, Norwich

We were joined by Sandra Howard, Jon Tolley and Chris Parnham. The White Hart was a busy and friendly hostelry with lots of diners for a Wednesday evening. A good selection of ales were on offer with Adnams providing “Ghost Ship”and“Southwold Bitter”, “Abbott” from Greene King and the imaginatively called “Bitter” from Cliff Quay, an Ipswich brewery. A score of 8.5 is well deserved.

The November draw will be held at The Victoria at Hockering, [twixt Dereham and Norwich] on Wednesday 18th November 2015 at 8.00 pm

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

Phil Robinson
OW 100 club administrator - Philrobinson55@btinternet.com

PS - December Draw - We will be joining the “60’s bunch” at their traditional Pre-Xmas event to carry out the December STAR draw on Sunday 6th December 2015. The venue will be Take5, Tombland, Norwich. The draw will take place at around 2.30 – 3.00 pm. Come and join us and put your feet up after a busy day Christmas shopping!

September Draw Results

The following is the result of the September OW 100 Club draw at The King’s Arms at Shouldham . The winners were:

Marion Reed [Rix] – resident of Boreham, Chelmsford
David Johnson - resident of Norwich

We had a couple of 100 club draw “virgins” join us this month. William [Trev] Trevethick and Stephen [Noddy] Woodbridge [who was actually born in Shouldham!] joined us for the first time. Also attending were Joan Thomson [Woodbridge]; Jon Tolley; Jennie Foster; Liz Bishop [Sasada] & Neil Bishop. It was an enjoyable congregation of our peers. Trev carried out the draw. Photographic evidence can be seen here! The King’s Arms was a very welcoming and friendly hostelry. Beers straight from the cask were Buffy’s “Norfolk Terrier” & “Worth the Wait” from Beeston Brewery. A score of 9.0 is well deserved.

OW Travel Award

Old Wymondhamians Travel Award

Interviews for the 2015 Award took place on 25th March and the winner was Fergus Cowley who is going to Tanzania to work on a project which provides safe water and sanitation to the area. More details will follow.

The College have introduced some new display boards throughout the campus which showcase the history of the College - photos, stories and newspaper articles from the 1940's to today. You can follow a trail from one to another as a timeline throughout the College. The aim is to make current students more aware of the history and also of the Old Wymondhamians. The plan is to refresh the materials from time to time and if you have anything you would like to display please get in touch.  

October Update

Apologies for the lack of September update, this was due to internet problems which have hopefully now been sorted!

Sad News

Gill Thompson [Norman] has been in touch to let us know the sad news that Pennie Bradshaw, nee Start, passed away in a hospice in Elland, Yorkshire after battling with stomach cancer since late last year. She knew this was terminal, and that she was unlikely to survive until the summer, but held on until her grandchild was born in June. She sold her house in Bradford to rent a place in Hebden Bridge so she could be near her sister Carol, and leave her affairs in order for her son and daughter, Laurence and Alice. She died peacefully surrounded by her sister and daughter. RIP Pennie.
