Sam Hayer & family visit to Big House.

Wednesday afternoon we had a visit from Sam his family and the Head teacher of Oldbury Academy John Martin, what an absolute pleasure to welcome them to the Big House.

Sam is Smethwick born and bred and works  at Oldbury Academy. Sam was responsible for field of play in weightlifting at both Olympics and Paralympics.

We are so proud of him and  his team for the outstanding way they carried out their work so much so they were recognised by many countries. WELL DONE.


Torch Bearer Karl Hinett visits the Big House.

Wednesday afternoon it was a pleasure to have Karl visit the Big House to have a tour and pick up his torch bearers stand.

At last l was able to say hello and have some photographs taken with him. It was good to see him and find out what his plans for the future were.
