Film details

Synopsis

ANIMATION. On the border of the village there is a tiny country cottage with a little garden crowded with hollyhocks, columbine and daffodils. At the bottom of the garden is The Big Hedge and beyond it PuddleTown - the home of the Pondles. The PuddleTown Marching Band is celebrating St. Pondles day with a stirring parade through the town and over the bridge. Major Pondle is at their head but what he doesn't know is that one span of the bridge is broken. Will the band recognise the danger and can the bridge be repaired in time?
