EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a moment of pure joy and camaraderie at the annual Laing sports day held in Elstree, Greater London. The image showcases a thrilling flower pot race, with determined women competing against each other while spectators cheer them on from behind a rope fence. The year was 1965, and the Laing sports day was an eagerly anticipated event for both participants and attendees. Alongside traditional sporting activities like football and athletics, this special occasion offered novelty events that added an extra layer of excitement. From sack races to the famous Donkey Derby, there was no shortage of entertainment for everyone present. Children were not left out either; they had their own set of fun-filled activities such as go-kart races, fancy dress competitions, and even pony rides. It truly was a day where people of all ages could come together to celebrate sport, recreation, and the indomitable "Laing spirit". This remarkable photograph is a testament to the enduring power of community engagement through sports. It reminds us that regardless of time or place, there is something magical about witnessing individuals push themselves beyond limits while being cheered on by their peers. Thanks to A© Historic England Archive for preserving this precious snapshot from our past.
