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

100 Club

The September Old Wymondhamians 100 Club draw was carried out at The Adam & Eve in Norwich and this month’s winners were:-

Karen Snook [nee Rumball] - resident of Silfield near Wymondham


David Norfolk - resident of Hethersett, Norwich

Cheques, in the sum of £55.00, have been dispatched.

Steve and I were joined by Steve’s daughter, Mel [who carried out the draw], Sandra Howard, Jon Tolley and Steven Bishop.

 I had forgotten how small The Adam & Eve was – my only previous visit must have been the Autumn of 1973 [or maybe Winter of 1974] when we ended up there when a gang of ex-pupils gathered for the fair in the Castle area [well before Castle Mall was built]. I think I might have had my first pint of cider there [many more have been consumed since!]!! The beers on offer were Southwold Bitter from Adnams, Golden Jackal from Wolf, Reedlighter from Woodfordes & Old Peculier from Theakstons [an unusual find in Norfolk!].

The October 2018 OW 100 club draw will be held at The Blue Lion in North Pickenham near Swaffham on Wednesday 24th October 2018 at 8.00pm 


As you can see from the above press cutting, The Blue Lion reopened earlier this year and thus deserves our support! We actually visited in January 2007 but it closed a little while later – hopefully that isn’t an “omen”!!

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,
Phil Robinson

October Update


Sad News

We recently received the sad news that Lawrie Burdett has died, he had been unwell.  Lawrie was at the College from 1954 to 1961 and was in East House and will certainly be remembered for his achievements as an athlete and long jumper.  His elder brother David regularly joins us at our Old Wymondhamians Golf Day and Reunion each year in July.
