100 Club

The March Old Wymondhamians 100 Club draw was carried out at The George & Dragon in Newton by Castle Acre and this month's winners were:  

Neil Sparrow – resident of Stoke Holy Cross, Norwich


Nick Harding - resident of Great Linford, Milton Keynes

Coincidentally both were Salisbury House inmates – albeit of different year groups! Cheques, in the sum of £55.00, have been dispatched.

Steve and I were joined by Steven Bishop, Beverly Sennett [nee Millard] and her husband Richard, Sandra Howard, Neil Bishop, Jon Tolley and Kevin Emmerson. It was Kev’s second attendance at a draw – the last one being at the Dog & Partridge in East Wretham in Nov 2009!! Kev kindly carried out the draw for us.

The April 2019 OW 100 Club draw will be held at The White Horse in Chedgrave [near Loddon] on Wednesday 24th April 2019 at 8.00pm 


The more observant of you may remember that we visited The White Horse in May 2016!! With Timothy Taylor “Landlord” being the resident real ale, we knew it would only be a matter of time before we returned!

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,
Phil Robinson
