Helen shows Peggy the collage of photos that Tony and Pat have made for Jack. Peggy's pleased Jack's getting lots of visitors, and Helen's pleased that Peggy is too. Peggy's decided to offer the village a ten year lease on the shop.

The stallholders are arriving for the antiques fair at Lower Loxley. Everything's going like clockwork. Bert tells Lewis he's been practicing for his role as Charles Dickens, even though he hasn't got his costume completed yet. When Peggy turns up, Lewis asks how she's coping. He understands what she's going through.

Clarrie drops off a pie for Lynda, Robert and Caz. Oscar's really restless and Caz is at her wits' end but Clarrie soon has him settled. She assures Caz that it's all about confidence - she'll soon find the knack herself.

Helen wants to know what's bugging Annette. Annette insists she's fine but Helen won't give up. Annette sharply tells her to give it a rest but admits she's dreading Christmas with no-one to share it with. Helen promises to make sure she's not lonely. Annette asks if Helen's planning to bring Leon back later. Helen's uncertain but Annette assures her it's fine - she'll probably go out anyway.
