Parish life was certainly busy for the Reverend CW Lyne, if this home movie is any indication. Featuring a horticultural show with celebrations for King George V's Silver Jubilee and activities at East Ashling Boys' Club and West Ashling Sunday School, it presents a portrait of a bustling community. The importance of local agriculture is also shown during lambing season and harvest time at the Hair family watercress farm.
