Contents The Gallery Past Reunions

On a beautiful summer's evening, almost 100 Old Wymondhamians were welcomed to the Piazza of the Lincoln Sixth Form Block with a glass of champagne
(once Julie could get the bottles open!) to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the College. Thanks go to Jackie and Caroline for organising such a great evening.
It was wonderful to see so many people and there was plenty of time to mingle and chat before the BBQ, for which we must thank Bob Bale and his staff, and
afterwards as well.

The Principal, Melvyn Roffe, announced that he had decided to award a College Lion to Ann and Adrian Hoare for all the work they have done on the history of
the College and these were gratefully received by them with a few words. As well as helping with the new book celebrating the 60th Anniversary, they have put
together an exhibition at the Wymondham Heritage Museum.

Steve Read kindly organised a Raffle - with Mrs Norton winning one of the prizes!

Phil Robinson kindly sent in the following photographs, but any more would be gratefully received. Update - Philip Wade has sent in photos of the Sixties Bunch enjoying the barbecue (11 onwards).

Let's hope to see you all again next year!
