Jill and Lynda discuss the village shop and its history. Some people want it torn down, but they need it. Jill remembers when it was a school. Joe has been very unsettled since the wall collapsed. It'll be a while before the W.I can use the hall again. Pip has been showing the new contract milker (Matthew) around at Brookfield. Jill masks her disapproval when Pip says she's going with Toby to Reedles to help promote their geese - although Jill's ears prick up as Pip debates the idea of staying or going. She is going, though, of course, and Jill plans a big send off for Pip on the Bank Holiday weekend - with the whole family. Rob goes into Berrow Farm's office, but just to pick up his things. There's an awkward conversation with Charlie as Rob pointedly mentions that he has been a good employee and should get a good reference. Rob is all magnanimous as they say goodbye with a rather forced handshake. No hard feelings, eh?
