The Archers: 6/2/2012
Pat and Ruth join the fight, and Eddie shows his generous side.
Christine appreciates how Borchester Land has tried to keep the village informed about the dairy but Jim doesn’t appreciate the hard sell. Jim’s timesheets for the cider club members are giving him grief too. Jazzer’s lost his, and Bert Fry has ticked off entire days. He still needs to negotiate a fair percentage of the cider for the Grundys.
Christine asks Eddie to contribute something for the Britain in Bloom auction, and is taken aback when he offers to fit a water feature.
Eddie and Ruth have a difference of opinion about the dairy. Stressed Ruth apologises for jumping down his throat.
Pat thinks the relaunch was just what they needed. Tony’s just glad to be back in a routine. And at least Tom’s doing his share of the milking again.
Worried that people won’t get the full picture about the dairy, Ruth and Pat set up an online petition. Ruth plans to make a few posters to advertise it round the village. Pat wants to email round a link to the petition right away, so tells Tony to help himself to soup. As Pat goes off, Tony sighs – it looks like he’s going to have to.
