EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the vibrant and exciting atmosphere of the Ogwr Tiki Raft Race, held on the picturesque River Ogmore in Bridgend, South Wales, in May 1980. The image captures a moment frozen in time, showcasing the enthusiasm and camaraderie shared by participants and spectators alike. Organized by the Bridgend Lions Club as a fundraising event for local causes, this thrilling race brought together individuals from all walks of life. As rowing enthusiasts navigated their creatively crafted rafts down the river's gentle currents, laughter filled the air while cheers erupted from cheering crowds lining both sides of the riverbank. The spirit of outdoor leisure activities permeates every inch of this photograph. The sun-drenched scenery showcases nature at its finest - lush greenery framing an idyllic waterway that served as both playground and challenge for these adventurous souls. It is evident that everyone involved embraced this opportunity to escape into a world where fun and excitement reigned supreme. Howard Balston's expert eye captured not only a snapshot but also an entire era - one defined by community engagement and spirited events like these raft races. This print serves as a nostalgic reminder of simpler times when people came together to support their local communities through enjoyable activities. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece of history preserved on paper, we are transported back to that glorious day in May 1980 when friendship was forged amidst splashes of water and determined rowing strokes.
