100 Club

The November OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Chequers at Wimbotsham and this month’s winners were:-

Eileen Baron [Fox] [former staff member & wife of Miles Baron] - resident of Overstrand
Steve Human – resident of Norwich

Cheques in the sum of £55.00 have been sent out.

Steve and I were joined this month by Jennie Foster [Clarke], Chris Parnham, Sandra Howard, Jon Tolly and Alan McIvor Dean [1959-66]. Alan had a brother at Wycol – Robert [1965-1972 – York]. Alan carried out the draw for us.

The Chequers was a welcoming village pub and has a good local reputation for great food and ales. The menu certainly looked appetising! The beers on offer were two from Greene King [Abbot & IPA] and Black Dog from Elgoods. A score of 8.5 seems appropriate. IIt was another entertaining evening with like minded folk who all have lived through the Wycol “experience” and survived!!

As there will be no 60’s bunch pre-Xmas drinks in Norwich this year, we will be meeting at The Parson Woodforde in Weston Longville on Wednesday 14th December 2016 at 8.00pm to carry out the December STAR draw where the prizes will be £500, £200 and £75.

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.
