Thanks to David Alcock who sent a selection of programmes for the Rainham Spectacular fair at Cozenton Park it's possible to get a glimpse into life and the businesses of 1970s Rainham.

1977 was the Queen's Silver Jubilee and the programme had a patriotic Jubilee theme to it with union jack flags adorning the cover. The event took place on Saturday 4th June 1977.

Some of the businesses represented by their adverts in the programme were Sophisti-Cats, Woolcraft, Hayfield Builders, The Old House Restaurant Lower Rainham Road (subsequently The Barn?), Poultons, Greens Garage, Pat and Parkwood Service Station.
