100 Club

The March Old Wymondhamians 100 Club draw was carried out at The Bell at Brisley and this month’s winners were:-

Adrian Osler - resident of Lesbury, Alnwick

&  

Kevin Westnott - resident of Isleworth, Middlesex

[second month in a row for Kevin – but he does have two numbers in the draw (hint to others!!)]

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

Steve and I were joined by Steven Bishop and two other OW 100 Club draw virgins, Tony and Ann Pyle [nee McCafferty] - 1955/1954 to 1959.  Ann kindly carried out the draw for us.

The Bell was very busy for a Wednesday evening with a few groups of people enjoying their meals. The beers on offer seemed to all be reasonably local with Beeston Brewery well represented with Worth The Wait and The Squirrels Nuts. Also on offer were Moon Gazer – Ruby by The Norfolk Brewhouse, Falcon from Lacon and the “standards” of Wherry from Woodfordes and Ghostship from Adnams. 

It was good to see a previously closed pub return to a thriving and community establishment. A score of 9.5 is well deserved.

The venue for the April OW 100 Club has had to be changed. I am advised by our Denver resident that The Blackstone Engine Bar actually closes at 8pm on Wednesday evenings!! Thus we will now be meeting at the newly reopened Denver Bell on Wednesday 25th April 2018 at 8.00pm. There doesn’t appear to be a website for them at the moment but the address is:-

2 Ely Road, Denver, Downham Market, NorfolkPE38 0DW

Hope to see some of you there.

Best Regards,
Phil Robinson

OW Golf Day - Friday 6th July 2018 - Sprowston Manor

Each year Bob Rowell (52-59) organises a Golf Day and Dinner which is open to all Old Wymondhamians.

The event becomes more popular each year and always attracts a large contingent of golfers of varying standards. However, golf is not compulsory and many join later in the day for dinner and an evening of good company.

We have all enjoyed meeting old friends at this annual event and it would be great to be joined by any new faces.

Phil and Steve will also be carrying out the OW 100 Club June Star Draw.

If you would like to attend for the golf, dinner or both please contact Bob: bob.e.rowell@outlook.com or 01629 582220/07710 229126
