Last Thursday I had the great privilege of photographing the opening of the new sports hall at Twickenham Academy. It’s a beautiful hall: shiny, spacious and even has a climbing wall! Present were several groups of littlies from local nurseries as well as a number of sixth form students, who later helped the young ones with games or played themselves on the outdoors sports pitch behind the hall. The lovely principal, Tracy Ward, gave a stirring speech as did the two special guest ribbon-cutters: Tom Williams and Will Skinner from Harlequins Rugby. I got the distinct feeling that I was in the presence of three local heroes!
