100 Club

The October Old Wymondhamians 100 Club draw was carried out at The Wellington at Feltwell and this month’s winners were:-

Juliette Wilcox [nee Hannah] - resident of Kingston upon Thames

Adrian Osler - resident of Lesbury, near Alnwick, Northumberland

Cheques in the sum of £55.00 have been distributed.

Steve and I were joined by Jennie Foster [Clarke], Liz Bishop [Sasada] & Neil Bishop [two months in a row!], Chris Parnham, Heather Gill [Starck] & husband John and, making his draw debut [I think!] and turning up on the correct day, Simon Turtle [Salisbury/Fry 1966-73]. 

The Wellington was a very welcoming hostelry with the landlord going out of his way to make sure we had enough space to chat by moving furniture around for us. They have a Wednesday night special menu which seemed to be well supported judging by the number of people in their dining room. Again, this is a pub that is “off the beaten” track to a certain extent, but one to visit if in the general area. 

The November draw will be carried out on Wednesday 27th November 2019 at The Countryman Pub at Tasburgh [north of Long Stratton on the A140] at 8.00pm




It has been a few years since we joined the “60’s Bunch” for their annual Xmas get together, so we have decided to carry out the December OW 100 Club STAR draw in their company on Thursday, 12th December 2019.  Prizes of £500, £200 and £75 will be given away.

It will be held at The Queen of the Iceni, Riverside, Norwich from noon.


We would expect the draw to be carried out early afternoon – say 2.30 – 3.00 ish. 

Hopefully those not in active employ will be able to make it!

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,

Phil Robinson

OW 100 club administrator - Philrobinson55@btinternet.com

OW Travel Award

Last year the OW Travel Award was given to Imogen Dixon who was spending a year in Chile volunteering with Project Trust. We have received a letter from Imogen with her report:

"Attached is my report for my year volunteering and working in Chile. I hope it provides an insight to my year in Santiago and the highlights working in the school.  Once again, I would like to say a massive thank you to the Old Wymondhamians for awarding me the travel grant. This has been one of the most important and transformative years of my life and I am incredibly grateful that you helped me experience this."
