Description

This is a film of the Surgey family on the beach at Scarborough and at home with the children playing in the garden.

The film begins with a boy is digging in the garden whilst his sister rides on a swing, soon to be joined by her brother.  Facing each other, they get higher and higher on their swings. The two of them next climb up a rope and a rope ladder on a frame.  Three other children play in a pond and cover one of the sunbathing mothers with sand.  The children continue playing in the pool and two of them get covered up to their heads in sand.  The film switches to the seaside, where a group of people are swimming in the sea, and a small girl plays in the sand on the beach at Scarborough, with the long pier in the background.
