100 Club

The August OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Fox at Lyng and we had a definite “first” since we started running the 100 club in Oct 2003! When we did a new appeal a while ago, some members decided to subscribe to an additional number. The “first” was that, this month, the two numbers drawn were both for the same person!

Kevin Westnott – resident of Isleworth, Middlesex

A single cheque in the sum of £110.00 has been dispatched.

Attending this month were a contingent from the “60’s bunch” – being Philip Wade, Alan Bridges, Eileen Wyatt [Pearson] as well as Jennie Foster [Clarke], Steve and myself. Eileen carried out the draw.

The Fox is the “sister” pub to The Lodge at North Tuddenham that we visited in April this year. Although their website stated that they closed at 9.00pm, this must actually refer to the dining times as there would have been a riot had they tried to kick everyone out who were enjoying a lively evening in the various different areas of the pub at 9.00pm! Although off the beaten track, The Fox was very well frequented for a Wednesday evening. The whole atmosphere was buzzing with a full range of clientele from young families, the local Young Farmers [we think] and grizzled veterans like us! Adnams was represented at the bar with Explorer as well as Woodfordes Sundew which had just run out and was replaced by Norfolk Ale. A score of 8.0 for a friendly and welcoming pub. You just need to watch your head in the front bar due to the low level exposed ceiling beams!

The September OW draw will be held at The Duke of Wellington, 91-93 Waterloo Road, Norwich on Wednesday 24th September 2014 at 8.00pm. For those not familiar with Norwich, it is located in the area of the old swimming pool on the north side.

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

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

Well done Bella.
