EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a moment of pure joy and entertainment during Gala Day at Laings Elstree Sports Club in Greater London. In the midst of laughter and excitement, a Laing director finds himself in a dunking chair, suspended above a water-filled skip. The dunk-a-director game was an amusing spectacle that required accurate horse-shoe throwing to submerge the directors into the refreshing pool below. Amongst those brave enough to participate were esteemed figures such as Martin Laing, the Sports Club Chairman, Derek Walsh, Plant and Transports Managing Director, Robert Wood, Homes Division Chairman, as well as Ray Randle, Lisa Althuizen and Pat Beaumont. These individuals fearlessly embraced this lighthearted challenge with smiles on their faces. The Gala Day itself was an extravaganza filled with various sporting competitions for both adults and children. Additionally, 31 stalls and charity stands adorned the venue while attendees eagerly participated in raffles and other activities. This festive occasion not only brought people together but also raised approximately £1000 for the NSPCC - a testament to the community's generosity. The image reflects the spirit of Laings Elstree Sports Club during this era - one characterized by recreation and camaraderie. It serves as a reminder of how simple yet exhilarating moments like these can create lasting memories for all involved.
