Pat's heard that the phone lines could be down for a day or two yet. She's glad Peggy's got Elona and Darrell around to stop her feeling isolated. Pat tells Tony about Jim's rota to call on vulnerable people, and Chris and Alice's scheme to distribute spare mobiles. Tony hopes Peggy will finally see that mobile phones have their uses.
Pat really enjoyed her birthday party, and it's bucked her up. She's even decided she'd like to give the speech at the Ambridge Organics re-launch. She feels she owes it to them all to make a good job of it. Tony's delighted to see she's regained her enthusiasm for things.
Brian and Annabelle meet their PR company. Rufus doesn't recommend a village meeting just yet. He thinks they should try to communicate with local people on their own terms. He asks for favourable bullet points. Brian and Annabelle offer up: good for jobs, good for local and national economy, high welfare standards and very green credentials. This gives Rufus something solid to build on. He proposes they wage an informal personal campaign in the village, and listen to people's concerns. If that's what it takes, that's exactly what Brian's going to do.
