Ruth and David have lots of questions about what the road decision will mean for the future of their farm. Bert joins them and Jill at Brookfield while they wait for the announcement about the road plans. David hears from Neil that the outcome is on the agenda for the next cabinet meeting which is online. They're amazed to discover the council are going with Route C not Route B. The Bull has one of its best nights in years as people gather there to celebrate the council's decision on the relief road route. Kenton has made a cocktail named 'SAVE Special Sling'.
