Sally and other Chobham "Olympians"

Hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of images will capture memories of the people, the events and the spirit of London 2012.

One particular group creating some of those images are the BT Storytellers.  BT, the “official communications services partner” for the games, chose 100 people to tell stories through visual art, music, performance… and words.

Among those Olympian wordsmiths is one of Chobham’s own, Sally Blackmore, a creative writer and poet.

You may have already read about Sally in the Chobham Parish Magazine and there will be an opportunity to hear about her storytelling at the ChobLit Lunch being held on September 27th as part of Chobham Festival.

She has already posted prose and poetry, including a piece about the London Olympics 1948 (now that was austerity) and about the recent London-Surrey Cycle Classic test run. You can read her Olympic stories on her page at the BT Storytellers site.

Sally is also posting about the Olympics on her own blog, especially words about Chobham people playing a part in London 2012, including Alison Kirrage, who is involved in the opening ceremony, and James Toney,  managing editor of the online sports news service, Sportsbeat, who is an Olympic torchbearer.
