Handcross School sports day

The date is estimated but the photograph is of the Handcross School sports day in the recreation ground.
On the right is Laurence Ray, who is handing over to the next boy in the team. I am presuming that the next athlete runs in the opposite direction to the previous boy.
The Large Version shows a close-run sack race. Stehen Cox in on the extreme right and Laurence Ray is right of centre with his sack in mid-flight!
The boy just beyond Stephen Cox is possibly Paul Pierce from Truggers.
Select Open Document to view a scan of a tiny 3”x 3” photograph of what seems to be some kind of village gathering in the recreation ground. I can recognise nobody, and the children are not in sports strip. Please can somebody inform us what is going on? And when?
