100 Club

The July OW 100 Club draw was carried out on 20th July at the Roman Camp Inn in Aylmerton twixt Cromer and Sheringham and the winners were:                                                        

Tony Pyle - resident of Beetley near East Dereham

David Howard - resident of Toftwood, East Dereham                                       

 A cheque in the sum of £55 will be posted to Tony, but David was able to have his cheque presented to him as he was an attendee.

We think we had a record number of attendees [23] for an OW 100 club draw! 

In no specific order, Steve & I were joined by:- Kevin Emmerson; Richard Ross; Julie Harding [Ebbens]; Nick Harding; Jerry Linden Ball; Anne Bradley [Ashworth]; Sandra Howard; Chris Parnham, David & Geraldine Howard, Joanna Voelker [Bassingthwaighte]; John Mewse & partner Anne; Colin Farrington; David Spinks; Andrew Bowcock; Joy Hetherington [Anderton]; Eileen Baron; Maggy Skipp [Smith]; Geoff Lewis & Marcus Ellis. The draw was kindly carried out by Nick Harding. 

It was a lovely evening with a good mix of former pupils ranging from Eileen & Maggy starting in 1951 & John arriving in 1977. A few photos taken by Steve Read can be seen here - I'll let you decide who is who!  

The venue for the August OW 100 club draw will be The White Swan at Gressenhall near East Dereham on Wednesday 24th August 2022 - at 7.30pm 

 This is another hostelry that has been bought, refurbished & re-opened by the local community. I do recall visiting in the mid 1970's when it was much less salubrious!!  

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.

 Sixties Bunch Summer Drinks - 16th August - Date Change 

  ‘With a rail strike on 18th August, the Summer drinks in London will now be on Tuesday 16th August (NOT 17th) at the Liberty Bounds 15 Trinity Square, Tower Hill, London EC3N 4AA from around noon. Pass this on to anyone else you know who may be interested. Look forward to seeing you there if you can make it (fingers crossed no further train strikes!) and a nice warm day (but not too warm!)

   College Reunion for 1972 Leavers - Photos               

               The reunion organised by Geoff Lewis (1965-72) was a great success.  A number of year groups were well represented. A tour of the Campus was followed by a barbeque provided by the College. Photos taken by Steve Read and Phil Robinson can be seen here, and there are lots more to be seen on the Alumni F/B page
