The Silver Jubilee is a good chance for Welford on Avon to show off its biggest feature: a full twenty feet of maypole. Looming over the village green this monster in red, white and blue dwarfs the children dancing beneath it but provides a fitting ending to a celebratory record of events one day in June 1977.
