100 Club

The April OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Red Lion in Thetford and this month’s winners were:-

Sheila Forde [Fenn] - resident of Framlingham Earl
Evi Walker [Hutchcraft] - resident of Abingdon

This month Steve and I were joined by Chris Parnham, Sandra Howard and Jon Tolley. Chris carried out the draw. Being a Wetherspoons establishment, The Red Lion was geared up for quick, cheap food but the beer was a lot cheaper than normal too. Greene King IPA and Abbot were on offer as well as one from Mauldons [the Black Adder brewery!]. A score of 7.0 seems appropriate

The May draw will be held on Wednesday 25th May 2016 at The White Horse in Chedgrave [Loddon] at 8.00pm.

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

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




Established in 2015 this exciting initiative enables former students to re-engage with the college to help the development of young cricketers.

The initiative has the backing of Norfolk Cricket Board and two local clubs, Swardesden and Great Melton.

To date £10,100 has been raised to support the project. This includes £4,020 from a sport England grant to purchase essential equipment (beginners bats and balls for example) and £750 from the OWs to provide the 1st XI kit for 2016.

We are able to provide 400 hours of coaching with the funds raised thus far and the impact has been felt already; girls are training after school on Mondays and Year 7 boys have beaten Langley on their way to the County Cup Finals!

If you would like to be involved in this cricket initiative in any way please get in touch with Justin Smith at the College.



OW Travel Award

Old Wymondhamians Travel Award

The 2016 Award has been given to Lottie Mountford who will be going to Uganda from Jan to March 2017. She will be helping at the Kitovu Hospital which was set up in 1955 and where recent projects have been set up to help women. She will also be helping at the neighbouring orphanage. A link to more information will provided shortly.


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.
