100 Club

The January OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Cherry Tree in East Dereham and this month's winners were:-

Sandy Morison - resident of Greenford, Middlesex
&
John Hayes - resident of Thetford

Cheques for £55.00 have been sent. This month we were joined by Stephen Chapman (who was making his 100 club draw debut having recently moved back to Norfolk), Sandra Howard, John Tolley and Eileen Wyatt [Pearson]. Stephen carried out the draw for us.

The Cherry Tree can, I think, be best described as a “back street boozer”!! That’s not saying that it wasn’t a friendly, welcoming pub but it was a bit “spit and sawdust” in it’s ambiance! We adjourned to one of the back rooms which was a bit chilly, but the bar staff soon came along and turned on the radiators. Two real ales were on offer:- Twenty 15 from Wolf and Phoenix from Tolly Cobbold, which appears to be a remarketed brand through the Greene King stable. A score of 7.5 is probably appropriate.

The February draw will be held at The Stag at West Acre (adjoining village to Castle Acre) on Wednesday 25th February 2015 at 8.00 pm

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

Phil Robinson
