The Archers

Sunday, 31 July

Alice and Shula walk the cross country course and chat about the Grey Gables launch event tomorrow – it’s now at the Village Hall. Shula’s touched when Alice asks her if she’ll lead Martha’s naming ceremony, explaining that it was Shula who helped her get back to rehab and so back to being Martha’s mum again. As they walk the course it becomes clear that the design has been altered – even novices would struggle with it. Initially dismissive, Justin finally concedes that he and an old business friend thought the first section was a bit tame, so they tinkered with it. Alice says it needs putting right. Chris knows someone who could help, but he won’t be cheap. Shula says that’s fine; Justin will be footing the bill. Peggy and Tony are with Nova and Seren while exhausted Tom and Natasha are sleeping. Peggy loves getting to know the babies. When Tony gets Seren off to sleep with his special rock, Peggy says he obviously makes her feel safe. It’s no surprise, he does that with everyone. As Peggy holds Nova she comments that all babies are special, but twins have a special connection. She’d like Nova and Seren to have a stained glass-window in St Stephens, like Jack’s which has been such a comfort to her over the years. Tony thinks it’s a wonderful idea and agrees to ask Tom and Natasha about it. Peggy hopes it would give the babies joy and strength whenever they’d need it.
