Family film showing children playing at the seaside, divers at St Leonards Lido and children in a domestic garden.


A little girl wearing a hat paddles in the sea with other children. A view of a large hotel(?) building is followed by a scene of a woman and two children in deck chairs on the beach. The woman puts the boy's shorts on him. Two boys dig in the wet sand, paddle and throw stones. At St Leonards lido scenes show bathers in the pool and divers jump from the high boards. Final scenes in a family garden show children running around holding hands and a woman holding a baby.
