100 Club

The January OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The George Hotel in Dereham and this month’s winners were:-

Joan Thomson [Woodbridge] - resident of West Lynn, King’s Lynn
Anne Bradley [Ashworth] – resident of Aylsham

Both Joan and Anne attended our monthly draws during 2015 [September & December respectively] - which just goes to show my contention that coming to see us can result in a win a few months later!

Steve and I were joined by Philip Wade, Alan Bridges, Eileen Wyatt [Pearson], Jennie Foster [Clarke]; Neil Bishop & Liz Bishop [Sasada]. Eileen carried out the draw. Another enjoyable evening with like-minded peers. The George was reasonably busy for a Wednesday evening but we managed to commandeer a section of the dining room to be by ourselves. The beers on offer were all reasonable local with Adnams Ghostship & Broadside, Woodfordes Wherry & Red Panther on offer. A score of 8.5.

The February draw will be held on Wednesday 24th February 2015 at The Coach & Horses, 51 Bethel Street, Norwich at 8.00pm.

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.

Philip Wade


Kett Hall 1974/2015

42 years ago (1974) Kett Hall Girl's House Captain was Jan Cummings and Boy's House Captain was William 'Trev' Trevethick. By coincidence they both moved to the same area of Warwickshire in 2007 and have met up occasionally. It was then discovered that Georgina "George' Norman, also from Kett, lived in the same town. Read Trev's article and see a couple of pictures here.
