Susan, Clarrie and Adam check out their biogs on the Bridge Farm website, but Susan’s shocked when she sees “Bridge Farm Needs You” on the front page. She wonders what Tom was thinking. Later Helen says the website traffic’s increased. She wasn’t sure about Tom’s strategy but it seems to be hitting the mark. He’s worked really hard to do all this before the babies come next week.
Clarrie cautions that Adam and Ian may have to steel themselves for opposition from the WI for their planned pizza van launch at the village fete. Jean Harvey and Pat Fletcher are going to formally object about it to the fete committee. Adam wonders about launching somewhere else, but Susan says they’re not backing down. Later she comes up with the idea of offering the WI an exclusive pizza tasing session. Once the WI have tasted them, they’re sure to fold.
Brad enjoys listening to Oliver’s tales of childhood haymaking and admits he’s doing it to pay for a place at a Maths summer school. Brad’s nervous about going because he finds it hard making friends. But Oliver says that Brad didn’t know him until recently – now they get on like a house on fire. However when Oliver admires Brad’s self-funding the course, Brad says it’s because Tracy is broke; she was sacked from a job she loved. He walks off, but later apologises – his temper got the better of him. It’s the only way he takes after his mum. Oliver says he’s got a good heart too. Same as Tracy.
