Three women stroll along a street. They are followed by two men, one with a bulldog. A sign shows the 'Forest of Vale Hotel', and people are seen leaving before another cricket match is shown. The umpires come out, followed by the players and two batsmen. One cricketer puts on his kit, and a group of women are sitting in the stand knitting.

The next scene shows houses near a river, and a couple standing on the footbridge which crosses that river. There is also a small waterfall. A number people stroll around the small village. A man plays with a bulldog on the grass beside the river. Outside a pub, a playful group of people are standing around with their drinks. One man quickly downs his while another lights his pipe.
