100 Club

The May OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The White Horse at Chedgrave and this month’s winners were:-

Paul Rutter - resident of Richmond
&
Lawrie Burdett - resident of Norwich

This month Steve and I were joined by “60’s bunch” Philip Wade, Alan Bridges, Eileen Wyatt [Pearson] Sandra Hornigold and her “livewire” husband, Dennis! Sandra carried out the draw.

It is clear that the owners of The White Horse have put a lot of work into creating a friendly and welcoming hostelry. There were even tables set out for card games such as Solo! Timothy Taylors Landlord is a constant on their beer list and was joined by Adnams Wherry and a house beer that I neglected to jot down the name of! A score of 8.5 is well deserved.

The pub is well located by the River Chet which has The Wherrymans Way running alongside it. This connects with the Yare and Hardley Dike and makes an excellent circular walk [with the White Horse at the start and finish!]

The JUNE STAR draw is to be held at Old Wymondhamiams Golf Day at Sprowston Hall on Friday 1st July 2016. The prizes are £500, £200 & £75. I will be joining the throng during late afternoon for evening supper. This is always well attended but don't forget to let Bob Rowell [bob.e.rowell@outlook.com] know if you would like to attend the Golf or dinner or both as numbers need confirming shortly.

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

Phil Robinson
OW 100 club administrator - Philrobinson55@btinternet.com


ADVANCE WARNING.

The July 100 Club draw will be held on Wednesday 27th July 2016 at 8.00 pm at The Gin Trap at Ringstead near Hunstanton.

OW Travel Award

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.
