US Secretary of State Dean Acheson (who was Guest of Honour at the College's first Speech Day in 1958)

100 Club

The November OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Gamekeeper at Old Buckenham and this month's winners were:-

Melvyn Sims - resident of Wroxham
Sue Baxter [Muir] – resident of Worcester Park, Surrey

Cheques in the sum of £55.00 have been dispatched.

This month we were joined by Sandra Howard and Chris Parnham. Sandra carried out the draw for us.

The Gamekeepers was a friendly country pub with quite an extensive menu and quite a few diners for a Wednesday night. The beers on offer were Adnams Best and Woodforde Wherry but it looked as though Timothy Taylors Landlord had just gone “off”, much to my dismay! A score of 8.5 is well deserved.

The “60’s bunch” are not having their traditional pre-Christmas get together in Norwich this year, so we will be carrying out the December STAR draw £500–1st prize; £200–2nd prize; £75–3rd prize at:-

Darby’s at Swanton Morley on Wednesday 17th December at 8.00pm.

This is a return visit to a superb village watering hole with tractor seats as bar stools, a huge range of real ales, a superb “pub grub” menu, scrubbed pine tables and quarry tiled floors – just like a rural pub should be! I think that I may need a chauffeur!

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

Phil Robinson

Old Wymondhamians Travel Award

Last year's award winner Bella, is now at Uni in Manchester studying Art but has sent in a final report.

There are also photos which can be viewed with the following link:


This year's award winner is Rachel Campbell Still and she has started her year in Guyana. Her blog is here and makes fascinating reading:



Students gathered on Remembrance Sunday to see a new memorial garden unveiled. Sadly the old memorial behind the pond had deteriorated badly over the years and a project was launched for students to come up with a design for a new one. It has also been moved to a larger, more prominent area on the grass by Peel Hall, and will act as a daily reminder of the history of the College site. As happens every year, poppy wreaths were laid by the Principal, representatives from the US Air Force at Lakenheath and Mildenhall, RAF Marham, the Governors, Old Wymondhamians and the College Combined Cadet Force.
