Lily Owsley, part of the Olympic gold-medal winning GB women’s hockey team from Brazil 2016, is opening the new EH Smith branch in Castle Bromwich, West Midlands.

EH Smith has redeveloped a site on Chester Road, and is opening a new ‘local’ branch, offering a wide variety of stock to provide local tradespeople with everything they need.

The new branch, on the site of the former Redcroft DIY branch, will be officially opened by Ms Owsley, who will be cutting the ribbon, signing autographs and showing off her gold medal.

The branch opening will take place at 11am on 7 April, at the new EH Smith branch located at Chester Road, Castle Bromwich, B36 0LB.
