I have a very unusual enquiry here from friend of the blog Tara Hackett relating to her Grandfather, Tony Hackett – he was a popular local school caretaker for years, and is a bit under the weather at the moment, and Tara thinks it would be great if anyone has any memories relating to Tony they can share.
This is a very strange request so apologies in advance! My dear grandad is extremley poorly at the moment. He was a big part of Brownhills schools and there were many people that knew him as Tony. (Real name Anthony Hackett)
Grandad was a caretaker for Ogley Hay nursery, infants and junior schools for many years.
I am trying to locate anything about him in relation to the schools history. (Clutching at straws but hopibg there must be something considering how long he was there.) I know he appeared in local news on the odd occasion (one when a fire was set at one of the schools) but anything would be great to help him remember the good old days.
Time is of the essence.
I have no idea where to start looking. I have tried a few Google searches but im not being very successful – any help is appreciated!
Thanks to Tara for an interesting and unusual enquiry which I hope readers will take to their hearts and help with if they can.
