Great fun
17 July 2019 | by Huff30See all my reviews

This is a charming film; innocent and fun with lovely familiar faces, Wilfred Pickles, Megs Jenkins and a very young Petula Clarke. Watch it to see how all our kitchens were with the tin bath outside and a simpler way of life before television and the internet and too many cars! A walk into charming recent history with some laughs along the way.
