The Archers

Monday, 2 May

Kathy’s made a decision about her job offer from Adil and Oliver. Her answer is no. She explains to Adil that it’s not personal, but she couldn’t bear to be part of what she sees as the destruction of Grey Gables. She’ll get a decent payout if she leaves, and would feel uncomfortable with her less fortunate colleagues if she accepted the job. Adil’s sorry but thanks Kathy for her honesty. Kathy visits busy Pat. She can’t help noticing that Pat’s fielding a lot of Tom and Natasha’s laundry, which she thinks is a bit much, but Pat insists it’s no problem. Kathy fills her in on her grand plan to travel America – a road trip. She asks Pat to go with her; after all they’ve talked about it before. But Pat doesn’t feel able to leave the farm and her grandchildren, current and expected, right now. Kathy’s disappointed but sanguine. She might move closer to Jamie eventually. She’s not ready to cut ties with Ambridge yet. Kirsty and Roy are gathering items at Grey Gables for disposal and lamenting their respective financial situations. Kathy joins them to collect some files. She tells them about the job offer, and that she’s turned it down. She forewarns Roy that Adil might offer it to him instead. Roy’s conflicted, but he needs the money, and declares to Kirsty he’d have to take the job if asked.
