Formed Watford footballer Bryn Jones impressed the young crowd with his trampolining prowess at Clarendon School Fair on May 29th, 1965. 

Hundreds of parents and children turned out to see him and get the Welshman’s autograph.  The day’s programme included children dancing and international wrestling.

  • Wrestling took place in the bottom playground, by the youth wing ( what a place that was…) Lou Marco (famous TV referee) was there one year, and several almost famous wrestlers put on a great but fixed show.Slightly better than the wrestling were the tug of war contests-huge men taking things very seriously.
