Charlie offers Rob his congratulations before they sit down - at Charlie's request - to discuss the figures at Berrow. Charlie has noticed some anomalies and suggests that he'd better have a thorough look through the figures himself. Rob's defensive and annoyed but keeps his cool. It seems it's time for Heather to move into long term care - Ruth will need to break this to Heather, who still seems to be looking forward to going home. Meanwhile, Ruth is organising the interviews for a contract milker at Brookfield - three people are lined up. Helen's concerned about Rob, who's out of sorts after his meeting with Charlie. However, a visit from Peggy cheers them up. Peggy's happy for Helen and Rob as Helen shows off her 22 carat ring - there'll be confusion in the village, says Peggy, as the couple married in secret. Peggy gives Helen and Rob a cheque for 10,000 to start their married life with. She makes it out to 'Mr and Mrs Titchener'. Rob says it's far too much - they can't accept. However, Peggy insists. Charming Rob says they can soon sort out a joint bank account.
