Sports events were held by the Sports Club, which included hockey, tennis, bowls, and football tournaments. A traditional English fete programme featured coconut shies, bingo, pony rides, catering and a beer tent, candy floss, and roundabouts. The day ended with a beauty contest, prize draw, and the election of Miss Sports Club. In the evening there was a firework display and a gala dance which continued until midnight

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the joy and excitement of slot car racing at the Laing Sports Ground in Elstree, Greater London. The image showcases a raised circuit where adults and children gather to watch miniature cars zoom around with great speed. Beyond the track, eager children can be seen operating controllers, fully immersed in this thrilling activity. The photograph was taken during a Gala Day organized by Laing on 14th June 1969. This event served as a replacement for the annual Sports Day and offered a wide range of sports events such as hockey, tennis, bowls, and football tournaments. However, it was not just about sports; attendees were treated to a traditional English fete experience complete with coconut shies, bingo games, pony rides, catering stalls serving delicious treats like candy floss, and even roundabouts. As dusk fell upon the festivities, participants enjoyed further entertainment including a beauty contest and prize draw. The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the spectacular firework display that lit up the night sky. To conclude this memorable day filled with laughter and camaraderie among community members young and old alike, everyone danced away until midnight at an enchanting gala dance. This nostalgic snapshot perfectly encapsulates childhood memories of carefree fun at local festivals while also showcasing how communities came together to celebrate their shared love for recreation in 1960s England.
