This film is from the Jackson collection and contains footage of a young child at home with his family and family trips to Bridlington and Blackpool.

A toddler plays in a garden with a slightly older boy. The shot cuts to the baby sitting in the sand on a beach in front of a woman. The baby has a sun hat on and keeps trying to pull it off. There are shots of the toddler on the beach eating an ice-cream as well as another woman and several children standing and posing for the camera.

There is a sequence of shots of the baby crawling around his back garden and playing with another child, who rides around on a toy tractor. There are more shots of children playing in the garden and of other adults sitting in the sunshine.

Following this are shots of the children and adults on the beach in the sand and walking on the promenade. There are also shots of Bondville Model Village in Bridlington, Blackpool beach and a zoo or animal park. Back at the beach there are shots of some of the children being pushed on the swings and sliding down the slides. Then there is a family group shot and a panning shot of the beach front and the beach.

There is a shot of the train station for the longest place name in Wales: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch, followed by family shots from the grounds of a ruin and a small steam train.
