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

100 Club

The December OW 100 Club STAR draw was carried out on Wednesday 16th December by phone with our treasurer, Steve Read. This month’s winners were:-

Nick Harding - resident of Great Linford - £500.00

Terry Hegarty – resident of Fakenham - £200.00

Mike Stacey - resident of Litchard, Bridgend - £75.00

A nice Christmas present for the winners and cheques have been despatched.  Nick has since been in touch to tell us he has donated his winnings to a homeless charity in Cardiff.

We have set the date for the January 2021 draw as Wednesday 27th January 2021. This gives us the opportunity to see where we are when the next Tier review comes into effect in the New Year. Just seen that we are still in Tier 2 here in Norfolk. Condolences to those who are still in Tier 3 [and to the ones that have just moved there] - before they remind me of that fact!  Update by Ed, Norfolk is now in Tier 4!       

Still “Disappointed of Fair Green”!

Wishing everyone a very happy and peaceful Christmas and a healthy New Year – see you all on “the other side”!

P.S.   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.


P.P.S 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.


More details can be seen at here:- https://www.wymondhamcollege.org/404/news/post/41/the-chapel-project

January Update

 Roger Garrard

We received the very sad news that Roger Garrard has passed away.  The following is the announcement that appeared in the Eastern Daily Press on 22nd December ...... GARRARD ROGER JOHN Died peacefully on Wednesday, December 16th, aged 92 years. Beloved and loving husband of Brenda, adored father of Jane and Guy and treasured grandfather of Sara. Private family funeral. A service of remembrance and celebration of Roger’s life will be announced post-covid. Donations, if desired, for Wymondham Methodist Church may be sent c/o Eirlys Johnson Funeral Services, 87 High Street, Watton, IP25 6AW.


  In the Heritage Room we came across a folder of photographic slides showing all aspects of “Wycol Life” – classroom; sports; general views; 6th form socials. They were taken by a professional photographer, Graham Hiles, and were for a future prospectus. We think it was 1986 although are happy to be corrected. If you were a pupil in 1986 you might appear so have a look and if you can provide any names or dates we would love to hear from you. There are four separate pages and links can be found as follows:  Hiles1, Hiles2, Hiles3, Hiles4


OW Golf Day and Reunion 2021

A note from Bob:

"Following the cancellation of this year's Golf Day and Reunion, my hotel contacts have been very understanding and helpful and I have provisionally rebooked for the first weekend in July next year.  2021 is the 70th Anniversary of the founding of the College and we hope there will be some event at the College to which we are invited.  My hotel contact is aware of this and when we have confirmation of a date it will hopefully enable us to rearrange the date of our Golf Day and Reunion if necessary.  You will recall it was the 50th Anniversary in 2001 when we had our first Golf Day and Reunion.     

Best Wishes - keep safe, Bob"
