Roy and Hayley are remembering how tiny and fragile Abbie was in the incubator. But that's all behind them, and their little angel is about to be christened.
At the church Will feels all eyes are on him. Clarrie tries her best to reassure him, and Roy gathers him up for the ceremony, telling him how much his presence means to them today.

Afterwards at Willow Farm, Alan remarks that Peggy would have liked the service. Jennifer tells him they're looking for a part time carer for Jack.

Will's desperate to get away to see George. He tells Clarrie he's had a card from Nic; she wants to meet up. He's reluctant to see her, but thinks she can't make things any worse than they already are. Hayley thanks Elizabeth for Abbie's cross and chain, but when she thanks Will for his gift she finds him lacking in cheer. Roy points out that the day can't have been easy for him.

Alice is raiding Jennifer's food cupboards for supplies for university. Jennifer observes wistfully that lunchtime is their last family meal together. And when she watches Alice finally set off for Southampton, she needs a big hug from Phoebe.
