Jill enjoys making Christmas cakes to supply for Fallon and the new Tea Service at Bridge Farm's cafe. David, meanwhile, feels useless with his broken arm. Matthew, the contract miler originally taken on but then let go immediately when David decided not to leave Brookfield, will be coming back to work at Brookfield - starting tomorrow. Bert plans to plant his memorial rose for Freda this week. Jill rejoices in the prospect of the Bull and Village Shop reopening properly. David's torn about whether to go to the Bull's reopening, given the family problems with Kenton. But he decides he should. Clarrie has got Joe an appointment with the Council to assess him for emergency accommodation - but they need to find his birth certificate, which involves searching through old boxes. Joe finds it. Eddie and Clarrie check out a flat which they reluctantly agree to take. Reflecting on a pokey flat and low turkey sales: it seems it's going to be a grim Christmas for the Grundys.
