US Secretary of State Dean Acheson (who was Guest of Honour at the College's first Speech Day in 1958)

100 Club

A month further on into this pandemic and here we are again! We hope that everyone is well and you are all keeping your heads down and have sufficient rolls of toilet paper now that the stores have been able to restock!! Those with gardens to tend must be in a position to enter the results of their efforts into the National Gardens Scheme by now I would imagine!

The April 100 club draw was carried out on Wednesday 22nd April 2020 by phone with Steve Read. This month’s winners were:-

Carole Arnold - resident of Norwich

Terry Hegarty - resident of Fakenham

Cheques in the sum of £ 55.00 have been despatched.  It seems highly probable that the next draw will have to be carried out in a similar manner.                                              

Stay safe everyone. 

Best Regards

Phil and Steve

PS 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.

 WyCol Analogy from one of our number. Written before they closed the pubs!

I suspect that we might all be gated for some while yet. The headmaster has spoken, and the housemasters are starting to get cross. Tuck shop is shut, or at least has no more sweets. The milkman has plenty of stock apparently, but not visiting anymore – and the sick bay is not taking any customers unless approved by matron. Kinda reminds me of the meningitis epidemic when I were a lad at school!!  KEEP SAFE
