This delightful short film from Bollington, Cheshire, focusses on younger family members, both two and four-legged. A puppy is beside itself with joy racing around in the garden and being cuddled by its owner, while young Ann Wainwright seems just as happy playing in the sandpit with her grandfather. Smiling at the camera, she helps to feed the chickens before pedalling off on her tricycle.
