Lilian garners opinion and Ruth looks set to fall at the first hurdle

Ruth and David’s journey to the wedding fayre is brought to an abrupt halt when they discover their sheep have escaped into the road. They arrive late at the fayre and realise they’ve left their smart clothes back at Brookfield. But even after brushing the mud off their jeans they don’t seem to be attracting any punters. Ruth decides to take a different tack, and approaches customers herself to explain what they have to offer. Their approach seems to strike a chord, and they hand out loads of leaflets to those looking for a rustic wedding.
Lilian is convinced Peggy will hate the pub’s new name. Surprisingly, Peggy completely understands the need to evolve to attract new customers. She thinks their decision makes good business sense. After all, you can’t spend fifty years working without an understanding of best practice. Lilian admits she should know by now not to underestimate Peggy. Lilian spends a happy afternoon reminiscing about the good old days of The Bull. Justin reminds Lilian to stick to her guns. The B at Ambridge is a terrific name. People will just need to get used to it.
