We are exploring residents’ life stories in a new feature of our activity programmes called ‘a day in a life of’.
Our first resident of the month is Sam Wallis. You can see by his photos what a handsome man he is. Sam started his working life in the Royal navy as a writer, after leaving the Navy He went into banking working for Lloyds bank in Newcastle city centre for many years. Sam then met Jean whom he married and they still hold a strong bond to this day.
