100 Club

The June OW 100 Club STAR draw was carried out on the evening of Friday 2nd July 2021 at the OW Golf Dinner held at Dunston Hall, Norwich. This month’s winners were: - 

Royston Futter - £ 500.00 - resident of Boothstown, Manchester

Tony Moulton - £200.00 - resident of Broadstairs, Kent

&

Beverly Sennett [Millard] – £ 75.00 - resident of Threxton near Watton

 

With not being able to hold the Golf Day in 2020, it was encouraging to see familiar faces from previous events, all looking well. Around 40 Alumni and partners were in attendance.

July is our traditional venture to the North Norfolk coast to carry out the draw and this year we will be meeting at The Lord Nelson in Burnham Thorpe on Wednesday 21st July 2021 at 8pm

As you can see it is a recently reopened hostelry and, thus, deserves our support!

 

Take care all. 

Cheers,

Phil Robinson

   I have been made aware of a revitalised Facebook page recently renamed “Wymondham College Alumni” which has lots of interesting comments and reminicences:- https://www.facebook.com/groups/1532014457127574

It’s a “Private Group” so you might need to be “approved” by a current member.

 

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.

 “Wartime on a Country Estate – Some Americans in Norfolk 1943-1945”

If you have an interest in what the Wymondham College site was like immediately prior to the establishment of Wycol, Anne & Adrian Hoare [teachers between 1974 and 1994] have written and published the above A4 book.

The book is about a Norfolk Country House Estate requisitioned for the war effort. On its land, an American Army Hospital was built to care for US Army Air Force casualties and later ground forces from the Normandy Campaign against the Nazis. It tells the stories of those who met there – airmen, doctors, nurses, Red Cross workers, drivers, military police, soldiers and musicians, sometimes in the own words and with their own photographs.

The book is available from Anne and Adrian by contacting them at:- adrianhoare@btinternet.com The cost is only £7.00 which includes postage and packing to UK addresses.

CCF Volunteers needed for the College 

 The College are currently looking for volunteers to join the CCF staff and have asked us to see if any local Alumni are interested. Over lockdown, they have had several staff leave and retire and this has left the Army section with little to no staff.  Please see here the email from the Acting Contingent Commander.  If you are interested please contact the bursar and he will pass it on: bursar@wymondhamcollege.org
