Rather interesting Romford facts
Did you know that Romford once staged Cheetah racing? Or at least tried to. In 1937 animals were imported from Kenya, with plans for events to take place up and down the country (as at Romford in greyhound stadia). The scheme failed for several reasons, not least concerns about the dangers posed by such beasts; and the fact that they werenít fooled into the chase by a rag and stick flying past them.
