"Children & Animals"

Opening titles are followed by cut out printed illustrations. This film shows various scenes of mothers shopping with their children in prams, and people walking their dogs in and around Maidstone town centre. Also included are shots of cats (one eating a worm), white ponies, calves, and elephants walking along the side of the road with their keepers. There are also scenes of many different children shown playing in their gardens and back yards, some dancing, playing with beer bottles, peddle cars, scooters, and eating strawberries. The film ends with extended views of the family Poodle dog Pepe, picking up rocks on a walk, and also with an elderly couple in a garden.
