(A hair was trapped in the gate on filming and is visible on screen). Views of empty bowling green at Skegness with hotels behind. Exterior shot of the County Hotel. Shots of the Ball family walking towards the camera. A brief shot of two women riding side-by-side tandem bike hired from Butlin's passing the Royal Oak Hotel. Shots of people standing outside a house and walking in a garden. Further views of Skegness bowling green filmed from an upstairs window at the hotel with beach visible in the distance. We then see the people leaving the family home ‘Stowe House’ on the Park estate in Nottingham and getting into a car. Next we see three women walking across the lawn outside the Seacroft Hotel in Skegness. The final shots are a point of view taken from the front of the Figure Eight rollercoaster at Skegness (understandably shaky).
