100 Club

The November OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Victoria at Hockering and this month’s winners were:-

Louis Poll – resident of King’s Lynn
Chris & Mel Read – residents of Watton & Norwich

We were joined by Jennie Foster [Clarke], Sandra Howard, Jon Tolley. The Victoria appeared to be a traditional village pub frequented by friendly locals. Unfortunately the beer selection was limited to one! Woodforde Wherry. However the open log fire was welcome. A score of 6.5 is probably appropriate.

We will be joining the “60’s bunch” at their traditional Pre-Xmas event to carry out the December STAR daw on Sunday 6th December 2015. Prizes of £500, £200 & £75 will be drawn – Do you feel lucky!??

CHANGE OF VENUE - new venue is Ribs of Beef, Norwich - which is just past Take5 at 24 Wensum Street. The draw will take place at around 2.30 – 3.00 pm.
Come and join us and put your feet up after a busy day Christmas shopping!

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

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

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.
