A guest from the past

Usha's still not keen to go running on her own but she tells Ruth it's difficult for Alan to find the time to go with her - or keep up, for that matter! They share a laugh over Lynda's latest recruitment failure for the Gormley plinth - Neil. To their delight they spot a lapwing in the Brookfield wetland and enjoy watching it trying to lure away predators.

Clarrie tells Pat that Ed's not finding taking on the Grange Farm tenancy straightforward. The Tenant Farmers Association told Ed he would need a business plan for Oliver and for the bank. He's going to need borrowing and overdraft facilities; he'll be stretched to his limits.

Tony interrupts with the shock news that Greg Turner's daughter Annette has just turned up. They try talking to Annette, but she's not very forthcoming so it's awkward. Pat drags Tony away when he threatens the third degree and they leave Annette with Helen.

Annette tells Helen she's on her way to her Gran's but she hasn't told her Gran she's coming yet. Helen deduces that Annette left France in a hurry and offers her a bed at her place. They've a lot to catch up on.

Episode written by Mary Cutler.
