This short film shows Margaret Newman, aged about 11 or 12 playing with a friend in the garden, and Mr. Newman in the garden with the rabbit hutch.


The first scenes in this film are of Margaret playing with a friend in the garden. The two are then shown stroking Wendy, the family's goat. May, the evacuee that stayed with the Newman family, helps with a bonfire in the garden and Mr. Newman tends to the rabbit hutch, with the grandfather also with them. The scene finishes with a close-up of the white rabbits in their hutch.
