This colour film shows the family taking part in several outdoor pursuits and sports including a game of tennis, a cricket match, a day at a horse racing track and playing a game of golf on a green.
The film opens with several boys playing a game of tennis at Canford School, followed by a game of cricket.
Scenes at 'Canford School Boat Club' show the boat shed and several boys wearing club attire dipping a younger boy into a river. Shots of boys in a four man plus cox rowing boat on a river (Stour?) are followed by fast panoramas of a river bank and several bridges as lone rowers pass by.
The next section shows a man with a dog in a domestic garden, out of focus shots of the dog in an outdoor kennel, a Sparrow and Siskin on a bird feeder and shots of the dog playing with a ball in a garden. Mixed shots (poor focus) follow of the family at a horse racetrack, drinking and socialising together followed by a series of close-ups of the horses jumping fences. A man collect his winnings from a bookmakers booth at the track, followed by portrait shots of the family posing together at the races.
The final scene shows a group of adults playing golf (out of focus).
