John Young has reported the passing of Tommy Young, 1953–1960, South House.

"Tom died on 24th March 2015 after a thankfully relatively short struggle with cancer. He had a successful time at Wymondham, particularly in sport. He appears in the 1st XV rugby photos for 1957/8, 1958/9, and 1959/60, and the 1st XI cricket photos for 1958, 1959, 1960. He was also a member of the school choir." - John Young (South/Gloucester 1960–1967).

John mentions that he started Wymondham as Tom left, and he was called Tom from then on. Some of his contemporaries only know one Tom Young, so he wanted to make sure they didn't get the wrong Tom Young.

After a long association with the College first as a teacher in 1952 culminating in 18 years membership of the Old Wymondhamians Committee, ROGER GARRARD has decided it is time to step down. We thought it would be nice to invite Roger and Brenda to dinner at The Boars Pub Restaurant, Spooner Row on Wednesday 18th March 2015.

This will combine nicely with the monthly OW 100 CLUB DRAW when Phil and Steve and others will join Roger and Brenda for dinner prior to the draw. Other OWs are most welcome to attend and anyone wishing to join the diners should contact the pub on 01953 605851 and book your dinner - 6:30pm for 7pm quoting the OW group. The restaurant capacity is 30.

If you are not dining, then you might like to join the party for the draw and drinks later.


Wymondham College App

The Wymondham College App has been launched and is FREE to download. The app works on Android and Apple iOS devices - tablets, desktops and phones. You can easily flick through pages of the latest Lion newsletter, 6th Form News and Old Wymondhamians newsletter. It is planned to add much more in the coming weeks and months. Just visit the App Store and type in Wymondham College.

 

Sad News

Bryan Tungate passed away at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on February 9th, 2015, aged 75. Bryan was one of the pioneer September 1951 Wymondham Technical College students who became a dedicated Norwich and King's Lynn Speedway Historian. It is no surprise he exercised his archival talents later in life as, not partaking in any sport himself, he showed tremendous support and enthusiasm for those who did and in some cases knew more about their achievements than they did themselves. In later recollections he was sometimes referred to as the sage of Wymondham College and was known to partake in contract line writing for those who chose not to do it themselves.

SAD NEWS

Mike Hammond has been in touch with sad news: "Sadly I have to advise that my sister Joy Elizabeth Hammond passed away suddenly on 9th April. She was only 65 and there were no previous signs that would have given any warning. Joy, like me was a past pupil and I believe from my memory was at the College from 1959-64. She has joined myself and Sandie at quite a number of the PSA dinner dances and also enjoyed the 60 year anniversary celebration. Having only recently retired, she was enjoying taking up golf and looking after her two grandchildren at times. She leaves her husband Graham and two daughters."

ROYAL NORFOLK SHOW 2014

At the risk of repeating myself we would love to hear from anyone who would like to spend an hour or two 'manning' the stand we have at the RNS. No onerous duties, just talking to other OWs! We form part of the College stand and we always have plenty of OWs who come along to say hello. This year the Show will be held on Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th June. If you are thinking of visiting the show and would like to help please email Julie and let her know which day would be most convenient for you.

It has also been proposed that the Wymondham College stand could be used as a reunion point on the Thursday lunchtime. If you are a fairly recent leaver then why not come along and see if you still recognise any of the staff, or indeed any other OWs who may like to come along.

SAD NEWS

We have heard that Robin Sewell died on or around 15th April 2014. We aren’t 100% sure when he started at WC but he left in 1970 when he was in the Upper Sixth. His sister, Melita, was also at WC and sadly she died in 1999.

JFK Remembered

 

With the JFK 50th anniversary being in the news recently, Brian Ellis has sent in his memory of the day:

I remember coming out of prep at 7:30pm from Salisbury dining room to be greeted by matron, Miss (Dolly) Dolan. She wore a very solemn look on her face as she broke the news to us. I remember thinking that the tone of her voice and solemnity of her demeanour meant that I should be overcome with grief. I knew he was something to do with the Cuba crisis...whatever that was...but really wasn’t up to speed with world affairs sufficiently to grasp the enormity of the event. We stood silent for a while then had our supper. (Lights out was 8:30pm for us 1st years). I came to realize that JFK may not have been a saint but that the world had lost a great man. Citizens of the USA still grieve and ask questions. I’m sure that all those of a certain age will remember where they were when the news broke. I do! JFK still remembered with respect. Brian S. W. Ellis

 

Looking for Robert Cameron

We have been contacted by a Mr Gammel who would like to get hold of Robert Cameron who was Head Boy a number of years ago. Some time ago he bought a car from Robert and he has found an item which he believes may have some sentimental value to him and wants to return it. He believes Robert is now living in Sweden but wondered if we had any contact details. Although Robert is on the database his details are not up to date, so if you have any knowledge of his whereabouts please email Julie and we can put Mr Gammel and Robert in touch.

 

November 2013 Update

Sad News

We have to report the passing of two OWs this month:

 

Richard Bawden - known as Dick - died on September 21st. He was Head of History in the late 50s/early 60s and a tutor in East, later Salisbury House.

Gerald Siviour, who taught Geography and Geology in the 1960s and latterly was a volunteer signalmen on the North Norfolk Railway. We understand that his funeral will be at Earlham Road Crematorium on Wednesday, November 6th at 13.30.

Click here for details.

Justin Fashanu

Some of you may remember back in 2011 Nick Baker started to write his book: 'Forbidden Forward: The Justin Fashanu Story' and wanted to hear from anyone who remembered him. His mum, Betty Jackson, was a part-time music teacher at WC and he grew up in Shropham, Norfolk. Well the book is finally available to buy. It is available from Waterstones and WHSmith but if you order it directly from his website: www.justinfashanustory.com then it is two pounds cheaper plus he will throw in free packaging and shipping (definitely the best option!)

In the end, the book took him almost two years to complete and he managed to interview more than a hundred people who knew the footballer personally when he was alive.

 

September 2013 Update

There will be no OW Spring Newsletter this year as we have no-one to produce it for us.

It will be posted to all OWs who are on the database - join here if you are not already on.

 

Bearing in mind the above, is there anyone out there who has the software and who would be willing to help us put together our own Newsletter in future years? We can organise the printing but need someone to pull it all together for us. If you are interested please contact Julie.

 

The Royal Norfolk Show will take place on Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th June. If anyone would like to come along and help us on either day please contact Julie.

Wymondham College Alumni Database

It has come to our attention that some OWs are experiencing problems when searching by name for individuals. Having looking into this it would appear that you need to enter JUST the SURNAME into the name box, it will then give you a list of possible names and you need to click on the one you are looking for. Also, when searching the database it is advisable to press the reset button to clear all search boxes between each search or it may not work. For more information or to report any issues, please email Caroline Hall, or write to her at Wymondham College, Wymondham, Norfolk NR18 9SZ.

If you are not registered on the database, why not do it now? You can search for others and they can search for you! Click here for easy access.
