100 Club

The September OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Duke of Wellington in Norwich and this month's winners were:-

Marcus Ellis - resident of Clowne, near Chesterfield
Johanna Griffiths [Cook] – resident of Belton, near Great Yarmouth

Cheques in the sum of £55.00 have been dispatched.

We had two OW’s making their debuts at the draw this month. Jon Tolley [1966-71] and Sandra Howard [1968-1973] joined us for the first time. Guinea Pig stalwarts Tony Lake, William Hammond and Maggy Skipp [Smith] also appeared, joining Steve, Mel and myself. Sandra carried out the draw. The Duke of Wellington was a traditional real ale pub in the suburbs of Norwich and had a vast array of beers on offer. Too numerous to mention by name but the Wolf Brewery was well represented. A score of 7.5 seems appropriate.

The October OW draw will be held at The Fox & Hounds at Weasenham St. Peter on Wednesday 22nd October 2014 at 8.00pm. Weasenham is on the A1065 about 5 miles north of Swaffham.

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

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