Jill takes some flyers for the Open Gardens weekend round to Lower Loxley. Elizabeth’s happy to put them out during the Garden Festival. Elizabeth’s coping with Roy being on leave but feels guilty about not spending more time with the children. She’s grateful to Pip who’s taken them to see the puppy at Brookfield, and she’s looking forward to taking them to Cornwall in September.
Lynda’s pleased to see a poster in the shop window for the Open Gardens weekend. She also notices Bridge Farm yoghurt and ice cream is back in stock, although Susan tells her that nobody’s buying it. Alice is surprised at how expensive things are, compared to the supermarket.
Chris is anxious to go through his business plan again, ahead of tomorrow’s meeting, even though he’s convinced the bank will think him crazy when he asks for a £200k loan. Chris knows what a big opportunity it is, and is determined to do all he can to secure the purchase of Ronnie’s business. It would mean so much to get the business up and running – their own achievement. Whatever happens, Alice tells him he’s a hero. Tomorrow is their first wedding anniversary and she loves him even more than she did then.
