This colour and black and white film shows scenes from various Scouting and Guiding films from the Sussex region. The first is an award ceremony and adult scouting meeting at a camp site, followed by the opening of a building (Scout and Guide headquarters ?) by a Senior Guiding leader.


This film opens with a group of adult Scout leaders and Rover Scouts gathered in a camp for a meeting with members from the Slaugham pack pus others sitting on logs. Various portrait shots show several older men and woman and a gathering of men and women around a car.

The next part shows a camp clearing with a Scout leader or master reading from a long piece of paper. A second Scout leader holds a board that reads: Camp notices Sussex Scout Opening'. and a Scout leader in a red neckerchief is presented with a horn (?) on a ribbon bowing in thanks to the crowd.

The next part shows a colour montage of several plants and flowers in a garden, cutting to black and white images of a Scouting parade in a village or town (Lewes ?) outside a church hall with crowds of Brownies, Guides and Scouts outside. A senior Guiding leader holds a key aloft for the crowds to see, as she formally opens the building for the groups to use, the groups applaud as she opens the door.
