Laing Sports Ground, Rowley Lane, Elstree, Barnet, Greater London. A Gala Day at the Laing Sports Ground at Elstree, showing childrens pony rides in the foreground with stalls and crowds beyond.
A Gala Day was held by Laing at the Laing Sports Ground on 14th June 1969, as a replacement of the annual Sports Day. 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 fireworks display and a gala dance which continued until midnight
