100 Club

The Old Wymondhamians 100 Club June STAR draw was carried out at the OW Golf dinner held at Dunston Hall Hotel in Norwich on 5th July 2019 and this month’s winners were:-

£ 500.00 – Nick Harding - resident of Great Linford, Milton Keynes

£ 200.00 – Bob Rowell - resident of Matlock


£ 75.00 – Bob Cooke - resident of King’s Lynn


The draw was kindly carried out by Jane Herring.

As ever, this was a convivial get together excellently organised by Bob Rowell. [no doubt Bob’s winnings will contribute towards the cost of his & Gerry’s bed & breakfast!]

Dunston Hall Hotel was a change to our normal venue and was an excellent location with the dinner being held within a function room at the golf club itself rather than the hotel. Attentive staff and a simple, well presented menu, made for an excellent gathering of like minded folk with Wycol at the centre of most conversations.

Best Regards,

Phil Robinson

OW 100 club administrator - Philrobinson55@btinternet.com

Richard Wilson - Salisbury 67-72 - Fundraising for Macmillan

50 years on from the moon landings – which I am sure some of you will remember as well as I do - I am having my head shaved for Macmillan Cancer support - not just a head shave though - being mildly daft, I have got the local Harvey Nichols store to support me by painting my balded head to look like the moon!

If anyone would like to support my fundraising efforts, especially as we are sadly losing more and more friends to that awful disease, that would be very kind. The fundraising link is below. Richard Wilson
