Christine's taking on a new challenge for this year's Flower and Produce show, baking ginger biscuits. Her first attempt, with Peggy as guinea pig, shows room for improvement -but Chris won't be defeated. Peggy feels ready to challenge Hazel over her change of use plans for the village shop. Peggy will speak to her solicitor. In other news, Johnny has a new girlfriend called Daisy. Pat and Tony discuss Justin Elliot's desire to rebuild and rebrand the village hall - there are obvious objections. Helen feels a bit under pressure as Rob shadows her at work in the dairy - he's full of detailed questions. Helen slightly defensively points out that Borsetshire Blue in particular is her personal project, but Rob only wants to learn the operation in case he needs to cover. Rob doesn't go along to the family meeting about the new Farm shop, so that he can stay at home with Henry. Rob's rather dogmatic with Helen about Henry needing a routine until he is properly settled. Absent from the meeting, Rob is outvoted on his idea to stock national brands.
