100 Club

The August OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Goat Inn at Skeyton and this month’s winners were:-

Philip Wade – resident of Melton, Woodbridge
Catherine Hallett [Bowden]- resident of Waterlooville, Hampshire

In attendance this month were Anne Bradley [Ashworth]; Jerry Linden-Ball; Joyce Pycroft [Daniels] and husband [whose name escapes me!]; Anne Chambers [Bean]; Colin Farrington; David & Sue Spinks, Steve Reid and myself. Anne B carried out the draw for us.

The Goat Inn was certainly out in the wilds of Norfolk and not near Skeyton from what I could work out when passing by the village sign and exiting the village without sighting the pub! The beers on offer were Nelsons Revenge by Woodfordes and a Wolf brew called Nanny Goat which was obviously brewed specifically for the pub. A score of 8.5 is based on a seemingly well managed establishment with friendly staff.

The September draw will be held at The Kings Arms at Shouldham on Wednesday 23rd September 2015 at 8.00pm. This is a recently re-opened pub which was bought by the local community and deserves to do well. I will be doing a reconnaissance trip on Friday 4th Sept when I will be attending their Beer Festival!!

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

Phil Robinson

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.

A question about a piece of art work

Kris Dwornik has been in touch with the following question: 'Does anyone remember the pen and ink poster in the art rooms of The Beatles 'Sgt. Peppers' album done by Alun Hood? It was poster size depicting Lucy's head with hair flowing over the whole sheet and in it were all the characters - newspaper taxis, plastercine porters, bridge by a fountain, marshmallow pies etc. pen and ink but ideal for colouring in in psychedelic colours.? I dearly loved that poster and wonder if anyone knows what happened to it? If so can I get a copy or better still the original? If anyone can help I'd be very grateful.' Please contact Kris if you can help.
