Characters: , , , , , ,
  • Lewis must accompany his future wife on a shopping spree but later he will check through the forms that Lynda has prepared about a grant for the Cat & Fiddle. Lynda’s neighbour, Joe, is keen to paint his shed but needs Eddie to bring some paint. Lynda donates some paint – anything to smarten it up.
  • Elizabeth and Nigel are enjoying a Julia-free afternoon preparing for the Bank Holiday weekend. It’s strange that Ellen has not yet responded.

Lynda is further delighted by the news that more animals are coming and it will be open to townies to visit. What’s more, Barbarella is due a litter. Lynda’s cup runneth over!

Meanwhile the fund-raising continues with boules at The Bull. Poor Lynda, when she goes to make some tea she finds Hermes dead in the kitchen. The perfect gentleman, Lewis offers to stay with her but don’t worry, Robert won’t be long. Left alone, she sobs …
