PlotEdit

Ken organises a Bank Holiday Street party, in aid of the deprived. Bet and Betty persuade Fred to donate a bottle of sherry to the tombolla in Annie's absence. Ken tries to get the Community Centre committee enthusiastic about the party. Alderman Chapman and Mrs Rankin of the committee tell Ken they've had complaints about his living in sin. They spell it out that he has to give up either his job or Wendy. Ken is angry that Ernie didn't tip him off about the ultimatum. He calls them both hypocrites over the Gatsby Club raid. Elsie asks Len if she can lodge at No.9. He refuses as he's a Councillor and he would start to fancy her again. Renee agrees to buy the shop on the condition that the whole shop and flat is vacant. Renee tells Betty that she'll have to tell Elsie and the girls. Emily thinks Wendy knows about the meeting and asks her not to hold it against them. Wendy forces her to tell her about the ultimatum.
