100 Club

The October OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Fox & Hounds at Weasenham St. Peter and this month's winners were:-

Carole Arnold - resident of Norwich
&
Tony Lake – resident of North Walsham [just confirming the statistic that, if you attend one of our draws, you win a prize shortly afterwards!!]

Cheques in the sum of £55.00 have been dispatched.

This month we were joined by Jon Tolley, Sandra Howard, Neil and Liz [Sasada] Bishop. Plenty of lively chat ensued. Neil and Liz are about to [or already have] celebrated being married for 42 years! Liz carried out the draw for us. The Fox & Hounds is a friendly country pub and the landlord was very accommodating and opened up the dining room just for us so that we could have a bit of peace and quiet. The beers on offer were Adnams Broadside, Greene King IPA and a Batemans brew that I didn’t catch the name of as it was “off”! A score of 8.5 is well deserved.

The November OW draw will be held at The Gamekeeper at Old Buckenham on Wednesday 26th November at 8.00pm.

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

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

November Update

I would encourage you all to read the blogs from our Travel Award recipients in the box above. The students really are thrown in at the deep end but seem to thrive on it.

If anyone has any news of past students or has held a reunion, large or small, we would love to hear all about it - and see photos!
