Annie takes Stan to task over his shoddy work on cleaning the windows in the street and stands over him while he does them again. Ray tries to get hold of someone from Weatherfield Plastics but all the management are away in Birmingham. The no-smoking syndicate starts to waiver in their resolve. Len is grumpy with everyone and Rita insists he does something about it rather than complaining. Len goes to see solicitor Stephen Rigby who tells him that he has no option but to pay the VAT. The Barlows and Janet have a day out in a park with a picnic made by Janet. The syndicate has its next meeting at the Ogdens' but folds through lack of commitment when only Bet turns up. Janet agrees to a holiday in Scotland with the Barlows.
