EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the essence of a joyful moment at the 1987 Family Day held at Laing Sports Ground in Elstree, Barnet. In this delightful scene, a young boy is seen taking his turn at the coconut shy, aiming to knock down those elusive coconuts with all his might. The excitement and enthusiasm radiating from him are palpable. The Family Day was brimming with an array of attractions that catered to people of all ages. From thrilling hot air balloon rides and helicopter rides to the sheer delight of bouncing on a castle made for children's dreams, there was something for everyone. The fairground rides added an extra dose of exhilaration to the festivities. Stalls lined up offering various treats and trinkets while an "It's a Knockout" style competition brought out participants' competitive spirit. Tennis and six-a-side football tournaments provided opportunities for friendly matches among sports enthusiasts. Adding star power to this already incredible day were special guests from Eastenders who not only graced the event but also formed their own team for the football competition. This nostalgic image evokes memories of carefree childhood days filled with laughter, camaraderie, and unadulterated glee. It encapsulates both the spirit of Laing Sports Ground as well as the vibrant atmosphere that permeated family events during the 1980s.
