100 Club

The November OW 100 Club draw was carried out on  24th November at The Squirrels Drey in Sporle, Swaffham and this month's winners are:                             

John Mayes - resident of Thetford 

Trevor Chapman - resident of Walmer, Kent                             

Cheques in the sum of £55 each have been despatched. 

Steve and I were joined by Chris Parnham, Anne Bradley (Ashworth), Jerry Linden-Ball, William "Trev" Trevethick, Sandra Howard, Jo Voelker (Bassingthwaite), David Howard and wife Geraldine, Jennie Foster (Clarke), John Mewse and partner Anne, Nick Robinson.

Nick was a debutant as well as being the OW Vice Chairman.  He kindly carried out the draw for us but sadly didn't win.  Much disappointment from him as he had been advised that, merely by attending a draw, he was guaranteed to win!!

It was a convivial evening in the relaxed environment of a  village hostelry.  The 'generation span" was from 1951 to 1983 (I think) so lots of stories covering those years were recalled. 

The December STAR draw will be held at the Queen of Iceni, Norwich  on Thursday 9th December 2021 from noon [draw expected to take place around 2.30pm]. 

This is the Sixties Bunch annual Xmas get together and it is always an enjoyable event with attendees from many different eras. The STAR prizes are £500, £200 and £75. 

Hope to see some of you there.

Take care all. 

Cheers,

Phil Robinson

   I have been made aware of a revitalised Facebook page recently renamed Wymondham College Alumni which has lots of interesting comments and reminicences:- https://www.facebook.com/groups/1532014457127574

It's a Private Group so you might need to be approved by a current member.

 

Just a reminder that the The Chapel Project appeal was launched with the aim of preserving the last remaining Nissen hut at the college. The Old Wymondhamians have made a substantial donation to this cause although it doesn't show up on this running total page.

 â€œWartime on a Country Estate – Some Americans in Norfolk 1943-1945”

If you have an interest in what the Wymondham College site was like immediately prior to the establishment of Wycol, Anne & Adrian Hoare [teachers between 1974 and 1994] have written and published the above A4 book.

The book is about a Norfolk Country House Estate requisitioned for the war effort. On its land, an American Army Hospital was built to care for US Army Air Force casualties and later ground forces from the Normandy Campaign against the Nazis. It tells the stories of those who met there – airmen, doctors, nurses, Red Cross workers, drivers, military police, soldiers and musicians, sometimes in the own words and with their own photographs.

The book is available from Anne and Adrian by contacting them at:- adrianhoare@btinternet.com The cost is only £7.00 which includes postage and packing to UK addresses.
