100 Club

The June OW 100 Club draw was carried out at the “Celebrating 60” reunion on Saturday 18th July 2015 at Take 5 in Tombland, Norwich. This month’s winners were:-

Roger Hubbard – resident of Raunds, near Wellingborough
&
Robin Postle - resident of Hethersett, Norwich [who was in attendance prior to the draw and could have saved us postage had he hung around longer!]

The draw was carried out by Moira Greenlee - who came all the way from Calgary to join us! The event saw about 50 Old Wymondhamians have a fun afternoon and evening catching up with their peers – some who hadn’t met since leaving 42 years ago! It was also good to see that everyone could manage the steep staircase to the gallery where we were meeting!

The August draw will be held at The Goat Inn at Skeyton on Wednesday 26th August 2015 at 8.00pm.

This is our annual summer trip to visit our North Norfolk brethren, so we hope for a good turn out.

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

Phil Robinson
OW 100 Club Administrator - Philrobinson55@btinternet.com

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.

If you would like to follow the 2014 winner, Rachel Campbell Still, she has recently updated her blog from Guyana http://geekinguyana.co.uk/blog/

 

 

 
     
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.
