At a Worthing fair, cattle are paraded, followed by a procession of floats and a marching band (possibly for a Rotary Club event ?). The film-maker's family feed and pet a hedgehog in their garden. Shots of various animals in their enclosures at Chessington Zoo follow. The film ends with footage of the film-maker's youngest daughter playing in front of their house with her mother and another young woman in a red dress.
