While Jennifer sends Kate an email, updating her on events in Ambridge, Brian frets that he should tell Lilian about his recent meeting with Matt. Jennifer is delighted to hear the news that Gormley will be opening the fete, and hot-foots it to the shop to get her name on the list for the plinth. Susan grabs the opportunity to ask about Matt - sharing her own painful knowledge that prison is a difficult experience for all concerned...
Brian feels bad for Neil when he hears that business is not doing as well as it might. In a gesture of friendship, he invites Neil to the Royal Show. Adam is pleased when Alistair asks him to captain the next cricket match and intends to take his responsibilities seriously.
Brian tries to broach the awkward subject of Matt with an emotional Lilian but cannot bring himself to give her much information. Lilian is buoyed when she hears that James is coming for her birthday on Wednesday; although Brian and Adam are a little more cynical.
