The Archers

Monday, 14 February

It’s ‘social speed dating’ at the Bull, and Amy and Alice don’t quite know what they’re in for. The pub is packed and everyone’s having fun. Amy thinks the conversation starter cards contain some quite personal questions, and she and Alice pledge to avoid the likes of Cecil Jackson if they possibly can. Rex lands with Amy, who’s escaped from Barry Simmonds. Rex has just come away from Sabrina Thwaite, and he and Amy share outlandish stories. They discuss their idea of a perfect night before the bell rings for them to move on, and it’s Alice’s turn for Rex. But Alice is distracted by Amy’s lack of success with her pairings. She was really hoping Amy would meet someone tonight. Kate’s stuck indoors for Valentine’s, giving Peggy an opportunity to question her about rewilding. Kate admits she’s interested in being involved. Peggy’s surprised. Kate’s never showed much interest in the farm over the years. Kate readily agrees with this view. She’s more interested in the business and marketing side of the scheme. Rewilding Ambridge faces similar challenges to the ones she successfully overcame with Spiritual Home. Peggy asks her to expand, and Kate conveys some of her ideas. Peggy’s impressed at the amount of thought Kate’s put in, and even more so when she learns Kate’s motive is to continue Phoebe’s legacy, creating a bond between mother and daughter. Kate confirms she’ll go and see Rex. She would love to have Peggy’s backing when she goes for the job.
