Description

Made by Dennis Leather, a member of Vixen Films and Stocksbridge Cine Club, this is a film of Stocksbridge Junior School Sports Day.

The film begins with a large crowd of people and a sign for Stocksbridge Junior School.  Then there is a pub with signs for ‘Red Grouse’ and Taddy Ales’.  More areas of Stocksbridge are shown before girls race at the school sports day.  This is followed by boys racing, and the parents watch from the side.  The Lord Mayor watches over proceedings and three women sit as judges at a table.  There are other races, including an egg and spoon race and a sack race, before the women have a race, followed by a boy’s tug-of-war.  The Lord Mayor gives out prizes and the film comes to an end.
