  • Short Summary

    Fun at a boating lake and fairground.

  • Description

    Location of events unknown. Looks like a Butlin's holiday camp or similar.

    General views children in boats on boating lake. A teenage boy wearing waders walks through the lake and helps children to row their boats. C/U of children on swing boats. Children ride in a model train which travels around a small track. One naughty boy jumps out of one of the carriages and on to the back of the one following. Cheeky monkey. Various shots of two girls riding a roller-coaster. May be a mother and daughter. It isn't a very scary one.

    More shots of children enjoying fairground rides including an aircraft ride, roller-coasters galloping horses, and revolving rides.

    E/C Neg.
