Sunday 6th August

Regulars Ian Baggaley, Steve Adcock, John Whitaker, John Williams, Angela Jackson, Paul Pearson, Chris Smith, Phil Voce, Marion Fritchley, Jean Donovan, Stuart Cumberpatch, Christine Allen and Dave Cutts were joined by Marilyn Mellors (last seen in 1986) plus newcomers Liz Hill and Sandra Whitney. Add three husbands, and we had a sizable gathering.

It would have been a nice day for sitting on the embankment steps. I'll try and arrange it next year.

Old rockers never die,

they just need bikes with electric starters.


On Sunday 15 August, Vince (nee Bernie) Baker, Steve Adcock, and John Whitaker joined approx. 160 other motorcyclists on a charity run from Bottesford to Skegness in aid of the local Air Ambulance. A great day in good weather. Not an oil leak or missing nut and bolt to be seen. Oh how times have changed!

There's a similar run in October. So if there are any other bikers out there, how about joining us and becoming the Mundella Motorcycle Club for a day?.

Friday 11th June 3 of us, with partners, met for lunch at The Lifeboat in Thornham. An old smugglers haunt on the coastal salt flats, it provided good food and drink followed by a walk to the beach in windy conditions. Paul discovered Boadicea's Beach Hut, and invited us in for a quick meditate.
Leaving around 5 o'clock, saw us arriving in King's Lynn just after the parking restrictions ended. Perfect. We checked in to The Globe, then split up with arrangements to reconvene at 8 o'clock.
With the strains of Coronation Street's closing music in our ears, we hurried down to reception to meet a "newcomer", Vince Baker (nee Bernie) and his wife Marylin. A brave pair if ever there was one, they had decided to come along without a prior meeting. Just as well, probably. Who in their right mind would knowingly join our mad gang?
We tried the pub next door, but there was no food available. Well, that's not exactly true, but there was no choice other than Hobson's. The rest of the town was in "English" mode...."you want to eat at WHAT time, it's almost 9 o'clock!" So we ended up at the Lattice House, a Wetherspoons, until chucking out time. We returned to the Globe. This is a Lloyds version of Wetherspoons, and therefore open until midnight. A temptation that proved too strong for some members of the party.

Sat 12th. Following a bargain breakfast, we decamped to Wroxham under threatening skies. As Molly Windley was nowhere to be found, we took a boat up river to Horning. For some reason, one of our members took the controls as we arrived. He then caused great merriment by trying to park prettily. The number of times that he got within a gnats nadger before accelerating away from the mooring prompted us to think he was doing it on purpose. Having regained dry land, we celebrated by going to a pub to eat and drink. Is this beginning to sound familiar? Suitably refreshed, we set off on the homeward leg. Interrupted only by the ice-cream boat (is this living or what?), we returned safely, and paid the traditional visit to ROYS where the majority picked up a bargain or two.
For what we did this evening, please refer to yesterday evening. The only alteration being that we all had last drinks at the Globe.

Sun 13th 2 set off home, leaving 6 of us to do the tourist trail around Kings Lynn then depart for Hunstanton. The weather at last picked up, and Vince proudly revealed his Mediterranean tan immediately we arrived, only putting it away again when we went to a pub for food and drink.
A final ice cream and it was time for fond farewells.

See you next year?

December 7th 2003 (just catching up) The Trip to Jerusalem.

A very pleasant afternoon with the regulars joined by Stuart Thompson (when not working behind the bar), and a guest visit from Gundega's sister Dagnija. Six of us rounded off the evening by taking advantage of the "all you can eat" offer at Ocean City. All sitting at the same table, and wandering up for seconds....almost like school dinners!

One year on, DOUBLE HISTORY!

On July 11th, Adcock S, Whitaker J, and Beaumont P gathered in Tewkesbury with partners. So did a supporting cast of thousands belonging to the Black Bear society. We had picked the weekend commemorating the battle of Tekesbury in 15 or 16 something (I was looking out of the window as usual!!)
The weather was scorcio, the pubs were crowded, and it could be difficult to get food at times as "the chef has been busy". Other than that we had a brilliant time.
Oh, and we took along Beaumont I (66 onwards) to fag for us. Fetch the beer, pass me a sandwhich, peel me a grape, that sort of thing. He was very good, we didn't have to put his head down the toilet once (unfortunately).

Double History?.....On Saturday AND Sunday, the Black Bears showed us how to hit each other with sharp sticks whilst wearing heavy woollen clothing. Reminded me of us vs Trent Bridge School!

Next year, so rumour has it, will be Languages. You have been warned.

66’ers on tour or “5 go mad in the Lakes”.

At the ‘66 reunion in March, Steve Adcock, John Whitaker, Paul Beaumont, Sheila Mitchell, and Anna Cortens conceived a plan to go on a school outing to the Lake District.
Following weeks of frantic Emails attempting to coordinate this raggedy bunch (well done Sheila), we had a cunning plan. The weekend of 12-14 July was set aside to take over a small B&B in Ambleside.

Come the great occasion, the 5 of us plus 4 partners assembled on the Friday, made introductions where necessary, and spent a pleasant evening together.

Saturday was field trip day. A split occurred, with 2/3 getting serious up the hills, the remaining 1/3 choosing a stroll around the Lake. In retrospect, the hills were probably easier!!

Sunday we went out on a boat, most returning by open-top bus thereby becoming proper tourists for the day. The Whitakers (re)joined the Hells Angels and returned by VW Trike/Taxi.

Sunday afternoon we went our separate ways. An enjoyable weekend spent in great company.

Will we do it again?……………Watch this space!
