EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we are transported back to the year 1970 in Watford, Hertfordshire. The image captures a momentous occasion - the revival of a 300-year-old tradition: the fairground service held on Good Friday. As the afternoon sun bathes Cassiobury Park in its golden glow, Flanagans Famous Funfair comes alive with excitement and joy. The fairground folk gather together, their faces beaming with anticipation as they prepare to sing hymns and listen to a local folk group perform. The air is filled with melodies that resonate through the park, creating an enchanting atmosphere for all who have come to witness this special event. Adding to the merriment is a magnificent merry-go-round spinning gracefully nearby. Its vibrant colors and ornate decorations catch the eye of children and adults alike, inviting them into its magical world of whimsy. What makes this gathering even more remarkable is that it brings people from every denomination together. Local preachers stand side by side, united in their purpose - spreading love and faith among those present. This photograph by Mick Spurling not only captures a snapshot of history but also serves as a reminder of how traditions can be revived and cherished over time. It immortalizes a moment when Watford embraced its rich cultural heritage while celebrating unity amidst diversity – truly an unforgettable sight etched forever in our memories.
