This edited colour film shows a visit to the Grand Pavilion at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, with close-ups of the "Dobbies" display and others; and a Three Bridges Free Church Sunday School outing to Littlehampton beach. The children swim, sunbathe and eat Ice lollies on the sand. The film closes with a group of teenage girls and adults playing a game of rounders on the Hazelwick School playing field, followed by a picnic lunch.
