100 Club

The May Old Wymondhamians 100 Club draw was carried out at The George & Dragon at Wereham and this month’s winners were:-

Mervyn Taylor  [former pupil and member of staff] – resident of Leamington Spa

&

Mike Comber – resident of Bridford, Exeter

Cheques, in the sum of £55.00, have been dispatched.

We had a good turn out. Steve and I were joined by Steven Bishop, Jon Tolley, Beverly Sennett [Millard] and husband Richard, Alan Dean, Colin Leaford, Heather Gill, Liz Bishop [Sasada] and Neil Bishop.

Despite being a bit off the beaten track, the George & Dragon was quite busy, seemingly with the local farming and agricultural fraternity, judging by the muddy 4x 4’s outside! 

JUNE “STAR” DRAW – at the OW Golf Supper at Dunston Hall Hotel on the outskirts of Norwich on Friday 5th July 2019. If you would like to attend the supper in the evening [or even join the golfing party], please contact Bob Rowell for details :- bob.e.rowell@outlook.com

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

Phil Robinson

OW 100 club administrator - Philrobinson55@btinternet.com

JULY DRAW – on Wednesday 24th July 2019 at The Three Horseshoes at Warham – just inland from Wells-next-the Sea. This will be our annual trip to the North Norfolk coast.

June Update

 

 

Derek Robson

We have heard that Derek Robson has recently passed away. Derek was a member of the college teaching staff in the early 1960s and went on to become a long serving Headmaster of Culford School. We are unsure of the era that Derek was at the College but the 1962 magazine mentions that he had married Miss Moss and the 1972 magazine states that he had been appointed Headmaster at Culford.

A couple of obituaries can be found on these websites:-

http://www.culford.co.uk/Derek-Robson-1935---2019

https://www.theguardian.com/education/2019/apr/29/derek-robson-obituary

and Adrian Dubock and Alan McIvor Dean have sent in their memories which can be seen here.

Thanks to Kate Hallett [nee Bowden] for getting in touch to relay this sad news.
