Once again an intrepid band of OW volunteers manned the Old Wymondhamian's stand within the Wymondham College marquee at the Royal Norfolk Show.
During the two days over sixty OW's came to see us for a chat and to enjoy the strawberries kindly provided by the College.
The weather was very kind and we all enjoyed the opportunity to meet old and new friends.
A most re-assuring tale was heard at the show from a 1951 Pioneer Spring entrant. It was a tale relating to Chattaway the outrageous English master, he of the flowing gown who in a trail of nicotine would sweep all before him down the covered ways of Wymondham. It was reported that his first English lesson called for our pioneers to write the words Wymondham College on a plain sheet of paper. A few spelled it correctly, the rest incorporated a “d” after the “g”. On such stuff was our great College founded!
