100 Club

The December Old Wymondhamian 100 Club Star draw was carried out at The Alexandra Tavern in Norwich and this month’s winners were:-

John Beales - £500.00 - resident of Isham near Kettering

Johanna Griffiths (Cook) - £200.00 - resident of Belton near Great Yarmouth

Roger Garrard - £75.00 - resident of Wymondham

Cheques have been dispatched.

Steve and I were joined by Mel Read, Jennie Foster (Clarke), Colin Farrington and a newcomer, Steven Bishop (York 1967-72).  Steven had been out of contact with all things WyCol for a good while so it was good of him to join in and reminisce.  He kindly carried out the draw for us.

The Alexandra Tavern was as we expected - "a back street boozer"!!  It was tucked away in a residential area and wouldn't really attract much passing trade, so it was good to see it well frequented on a Wednesday evening.  The beers on offer seemed to be predominantly local and Chalk Hill Brewery provided CHB, Brewery Tap and Black Anna plus there was a beer from Tipples Brewery (from Salhouse).  A super establishment that die hard real ale aficionados would love, so a score of 9.0 is appropriate.

The January 2018 OW 100 Club draw will be held at The Green Dragon in Wymondham on Wednesday 24th January 2018.  We last frequented the Green Dragon in September 2010 so a return visit seem appropriate especially considering it has won CAMRA's Rural Pub of the Year in 2015.

Hope to see some of you there.

Wishing you all a Very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

Best Regards,
Phil Robinson
