100 Club

The February OW 100 Club draw was carried out at The Coachmakers Pub & Restaurant in East Dereham and this month’s winners were:-

Mike Stacey [resident of Litchard, Bridgend]
Brian Ellis [resident of Stockton-on-Tees]

Cheques, in the sum of £55.00 each, are on their way.

Steve and I were joined this month by Sandra Howard and Neil and Liz Bishop [Sadada]. Neil carried out the draw for us.

The Coachmakers was very quiet and, for most of the evening, we were its only clientele!
The beers on offer were from Lacons [a recently revived brewery from Great Yarmouth] with Falcon & Encore available. A friendly enough pub and I think that it has the brightest lighting that I have ever encountered in a male toilet!! [I will let others confirm whether the Ladies was just as bright!]

The March 100 club draw will be held at The Crown at Great Ellingham on Wednesday 29th March 2017 at 8.00pm.

Hope to see some of you there.

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

February Update


Sixties Bunch Summer Drinks

A note from Philip Wade: ‘Summer drinks this year will be going back to The Liberty Bounds, 15 Trinity Square, London EC3N 4AA (Near the Tower of London) on Sunday 25th June, meet up from noon.’

Old Wymondhamians Golf Day - Friday 7th July 2017 - Sprowston Manor, Norwich

Each year Bob Rowell (52-59) organises a Golf Day and Dinner which is open to all Old Wymondhamians.

The event becomes more popular each year and always attracts a large contingent of golfers of varying standards. However, golf is not compulsory and many join later in the day for dinner and an evening of good company.

If you would like to join the fun, please contact Bob: bob.e.rowell@outlook.com

Sad News

We have recently heard that Mike Amis passed away on February 3rd at the age of 72. His wife Kathy tells us that he had a double lung transplant 18 years ago and he had a truly wonderful life.

Amanda Finlay also got in touch: 'My dearest dad Derek William Buckingham who attended Wymondham College in the 50's sadly passed away on 22nd January aged 77. He had the opportunity to visit the College last October with his son in law Jason which he was thrilled about. He told everyone that would listen about the visit as it brought back wonderful memories of his time at the college.'
