An inspiring film of a fundraising event in Winchmore Hill, which features an array of classic games (grand prizes include a prime turkey), performances and miniature trains. The fete is ultimately a success - the film culminates with a scene that shows a new hand-operated lift in use – and was shot by a local amateur filmmaker, who was part of Planet Films and a member of the Southgate Rotary Club.
