This local sports day gives the Olympics a run for their money. Who will win gold in the bicycle obstacle course? The paper bag on the head slalom? The run to the wife to have a tie put on and a cigarette lit? These scenes, filmed specifically for showing at the Orpington Picture Palace, reveal the scale of the events - and on a weekday too.
