100 Club

The August OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Sandboy in Bawsey, King’s Lynn and the winners were:-

Simon Hall - resident of Kenninghall
Janet Couperthwaite [Wing] - resident of Norwich

The draw took part during the New Hall reunion organised by Jennie Foster (Clarke) and Flossie Foulis Brown (Parrott) carried out the draw for us. It was an enjoyable afternoon/evening with lots of reminiscing and pouring over old photos etc. Plus we managed to recruit three new 100 club members!!

Photos can be seen here.

The September OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The White Hart in Rockland All Saints and the winners were:-

William Hammond - resident of North Walsham
Paul Rutter - resident of Richmond, Surrey

Cheques in the sum of £55.00 have been sent out. Steve and I were joined this month by Sandra Howard and Chris Parnham. Whilst a bit off the beaten track, the White Hart was a lively place to be on arrival with a group of ladies who seemed to have been in residence all afternoon!! Thankfully their husbands soon arrived to take them home! It appears that the landlord used to play for Dereham rugby club so was known to Steve and Chris [this fact didn’t get us a discount on our drinks though!] The only ale on offer appeared to be Fullers London Pride although their website mentions Adnams Bitter. So a bit of a disappointment there. A score of 7.5 therefore seems appropriate.

The October OW 100 Club draw will be held at The Ox & Plough in Old Buckenham near Attleborough on Wednesday 26th October 2016.

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

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


Old Wymondhamians Travel Award

Each year the Old Wymondhamians provide a Travel Bursary to a current Year 13 student. Pupils undertaking some form of travel and activity after leaving the College, either in their gap year or before going on to further education, are encouraged to apply for the award. The activity should, ideally, have some purpose or benefit for persons other than the student and is awarded at the end of the Easter term.

This year Lottie Mountford was successful in her application.

Lottie is going to Masaka in Central Uganda for 10 weeks between January and March 2017. She has written about what she will be doing and the reasons behind the trip and this can be read here.

She still needs to raise some money for the trip and if you would like to donate, however large or small, you can do so via her Just Giving website.


To recognise the 65th Anniversary of the College and to raise funds for the Pavilion Appeal a Halloween Ball will be held in the Sports Hall on the 29th October. The Ball will be a Halloween themed event with a 5 course dinner, an auction, magician, live music and much more.

The sports hall will be transformed with blackout drapes, special effect lighting and dry ice - even the menu is themed appropriately !! The evening promises to be a magical night for staff, parents and former students. Please click on the picture for ticket details.

There have been some great donations for the Auction already but if you are able to offer an auction prize or know of someone who may be able to, please get in touch.

There are also commercial sponsor packages available, please contact Justin Smith for details.
