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

100 Club

Two 100 Club reports this month due to holidays!

The June Old Wymondhamians 100 Club STAR draw was carried out at the OW Golf dinner held at Sprowston Manor Hotel in Norwich on Friday 6th July 2018.  

The winners were:-

£ 500.00 - Kathleen Jephcote [nee Jackson] - resident of Nuneaton

[by chance, Kathleen’s brother, David, was attending the evening dinner]

£ 200.00 - Trevor Chapman [resident of Walmer, Deal, Kent]

£ 75.00 - Dorothy Pymer [nee Mann] - resident of Dunholme, Lincolnshire

The draw was kindly carried out by Tony Howe.

As ever, this was a convivial get together excellently organised by Bob Rowell.


The July Old Wymondhamians 100 club draw was carried out at The Jolly Sailors in Brancaster Staithe and the winners were:-

June Spear [nee King] - resident of Greenville, Florida, USA

Roger Hubbard - resident of Dunholme, Lincolnshire

Steve and I were joined on our annual North Norfolk trip by Jo Voelker [nee Bassingthwaighte] and her husband Norbert, Chris Parnham, Jennie Foster (nee Clarke), Marcus Ellis, Guy Pettit, Lynne Pettit [nee Semmens], Sandra Howar, John Tolley. The attached photo is generally in that order from left around the table. Apologies for the lack of flash! The draw was kindly carried out by Marcus Ellis.

The Jolly Sailors was, as their website describes, a family friendly village pub catering for all ages. It was quite busy due to it being the first day of the summer school holidays. If some of us had felt a bit more agile I’m sure we could have given the youngsters on the jungle climbing frame a run for their money!!! The beers on offer were from Adnams [Broadside]; Woodfordes [Wherry]; Panther [Golden Pale Ale] & Wolf [Granny wouldn’t like it!] Some of us had supper and the service was quick and efficient and all the plates were clean when collected! A score of 9.0 as the pub really was “what it said on the tin”!

AUGUST draw – as some of you will be aware, Mike Comber has organised a Wycol reunion which includes a tour around the College followed by a BBQ. 

This happens on Friday 24th August 2018.  

We have decided to tag along and carry out the 100 Club draw at the BBQ. 

The tour starts at 10.30 with the BBQ being between 12.30 & 1400. 

If you would like to join the tour and BBQ, please contact Mike in the first instance:-michael.comber42@btinternet.com

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,
Phil Robinson
OW 100 Club administrator - Philrobinson55@btinternet.com
