It’s the village fete in Ambridge and the final of the scarecrow competition, whilst elsewhere Bridge Farm’s fate is a different matter…
There is continuing despair at Bridge Farm this week where Tom wants his parents to take a stronger stand over the E Coli outbreak as his own business begins to suffer. Meanwhile David offers some welcome advice to Tony and Pat, but poor old Clarrie fears for her future and Pat fears for her and Tony’s business.
Frivolity at The Village Fete
There’s fun and games at the annual Village Fete with Susan and Vicky gossiping and a family united by scarecrows of all things. Whilst over at Lower Loxley a family divided is being helped by Pip. Elsewhere Chris and Alice are planning their future after their first year of marriage, but are they being unrealistic?
Feel you need a steam clean? Don’t worry you’re not the only one – it’s The Archers!

Tasters 17th July – 22nd July 2011
All is not well in Ambridge this week and even the yoghurt is turning sour –
Emma is tired & losing sleep which makes her snappy. Nic is trying to help but just gets it wrong. Jennifer is running around trying to avoid a certain someone and feeling guilty. Susan is down in the dumps feeling everything is against her, after such a good start at the weekend. Clarrie is blaming herself and still feeling a bit squeamish but Pat is just down right cross !
Who is scared of scarecrows?
Scarecrow goats are being made quicker than you can say’ Billy goat gruff’ for young George but everyone insists it’s for the competition and not just to be competitive for his attention. But over at Bridge Farm it isn’t the scarecrows frightening everyone. Rumours are rife but this time Susan is trying to stop them! Intrigued? You will be – it’s The Archers!
Tune in on Monday for a shock and don’t miss Friday’s episode for some real explosions!

Tasters for 10-15th July 2011
If money is the root of all evil, then the Carters must be positively angelic as their piggy bank is empty this week. We take a peek at the fickle finances of the folk of Ambridge…
Chris is counting the pennies this week, but will his business prove to be a money-spinner? With Brian as his father-in-law, he sorely hopes so, and plans to put his money where his mouth is. Let’s hope he’ll be laughing all the way to the bank. While Brian believes it’s high time Alice realised money doesn’t grow on trees, Jennifer thinks he’s made of money and worries about her daughter doing without. Alice meanwhile, is determined to make it work, no matter what the cost.
Right on the money
Elsewhere, Neil can’t stop his daughter stressing for love nor money, and Susan’s just as bad; it looks like Keira’s christening may cost them a pretty penny. Will plans to give Emma and Ed a run for their money as he raises the stakes of the scarecrow competition. Always in the black, Lilian receives a cheque that sadly bounces back. Fallon feels distinctly undervalued and Kirsty’s right on the money with her theory why. Still, there’s one thing you can always bank on… It’s The Archers!
Fallon lets slip a secret on Thursday and tune in on Friday as the Carters get ready to party…
Sunday: Money Matters
Monday: Family Trouble
Tuesday: Love Hurts
Wednesday: Under Pressure
Thursday: Loose Ends
Friday: Too many cooks
In the red: Chris and Alice
In the black: Brian
Tasters for 3-8th July 2011
As Alice returns home and embraces life after exams, Ruairi packs his bags and heads off to school…
Brian hopes the old school tie might work for Ruairi when he’s older, paving the way for a bright future. In the meantime, the little boy has to cope with life away from home and the doting Jennifer.
Meanwhile, testing times for the Tuckers. Roy raises the topic of an extended holiday with Phoebe’s school, but will they take an old school view of her travels or support her launch into the ‘school of life’?
Having finished his exams, plus a difficult year at the school of hard knocks, Jamie now ponders his future. Has he learnt a lesson from Marty’s miserable plight? We can only hope so. If Natalie had her way he’d be top of the class!
Pip is on good form and looks forward to university. She attempts to school her parents in the finer points of marketing and farm management. It’s a bit like teaching your grandmother to suck eggs, but they take it with good grace. David is of the view you can’t teach an old dog new tricks and Ruth would still like to teach Elizabeth a lesson… It’s The Archers!
Play truant on Wednesday and head to the Borsetshire Show!
Sunday: Natalie has high hopes
Monday: Nic to the rescue
Tuesday: Hayley hesitates
Wednesday: A day out for Ed
Thursday: Ruth stands by her man
Friday: Alice keeps schtum
House points all the way: Jamie has finally pulled his socks up.
Still in detention: David will have to work hard to overcome his black mark.
