Some history of the Waggon and Horses on Oldbury Road at Smethwick in the county of Staffordshire.
More information on the Waggon and Horses at Smethwick to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Waggon and Horses from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Waggon and Horses. There is information on Smethwick and Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"A Smethwick licensee and three of his customers are feeling a little light-headed after being shaved to raise money to help
handicapped youngsters. Sponsored by friends, Steve Cain, licensee of the Waggon and Horses in Oldbury Road and drinking pals Russell White,
Terry Holmes and Jimmy Moore all had their heads shaved to raise cash for the Albert Bradford Special School in Holly Lane. Smethwick. Great
Barr hairdresser Norman Farelly provided his services for the close shave, which raised more than £600. Headmaster Mr. Hugh Smith said the money
would be used to provide equipment and outings for the school's 43 handicapped pupils. A cheque presentation is planned for April 22nd."
