Sailing at Burnham Overy
The Plume family in their little sailing boat, the Daisy Belle, at Burnham Overy with Mavis Plume showing off some of her swimwear collection.
From the collection of:
The adventures of the Plume family from Wisbech, holidaying at Burnham Overy. With Dad, Derrick, behind the camera, filming mum Mavis and their two sons Paul and David. Following a mock launching ceremony, Mavis and children navigate the shallow waterways of Burnham Overy in their little sailing boat, the Daisy Belle.
Notice the (swimming) costume changes throughout the film – you could say that Mrs Plume had a fondness for swimwear! Over the years she collected more than 500 items. Her swimsuit collection was donated, and can now be viewed at Southend Museums.
