Silver Jubilee fever is in full swing at Kegworth in Leicestershire as this home movie shot at the local primary school shows. The children have gone to town customising their bikes in Union Jack red, white and blue; making some of them a little tricky to handle. Add in a race involving that classic '70s creation: the space hopper as well as one of the fastest three-legged races ever captured on film and it looks as if a memorable time was had by all.
