This film documents the opening ceremony of the newly built sea wall at Hornsea as well as the presentation of a new fire engine by Mrs. A. Easton.

Title - Hornsea - Official Opening of the Sea Wall by Col. the Hon. F.S. Jackson M.P.

The film opens with a group of men and a few women standing behind a ribbon. One of the men gives a brief speech before cutting the ribbon signalling the official opening of the sea wall. The crowd applauds and eventually make their way down towards the sea front. Some of them pose for the camera.

There is a shot of the coastline with the newly opened wall visible. There are many people on the beach at Hornsea. Some are taking donkey rides, and the resorts are visible in the background.

Title - Mrs. A. Easton Christens the new Fire Engine.

A group of firemen sit inside the new fire engine, and a large crowd has gathered around to see the new vehicle. They all pose together for the camera. Then, Mrs. Easton gets behind the wheel of the truck to pose with the rest of the firemen.
