Hilda grows tired of working at both the Rovers and the Community Centre. Ernie doesn't enjoy interviewing machinists for jobs. Emily decides to stay on at the Hospital even though Ernie has a job. Albert is horrified as the landlord puts Minnie's house up for sale. Ray wants to buy No.5 but Deirdre isn't keen - she wants somewhere with a garden. Hilda's mac disappears. Ena determines to find out why Minnie's house is for sale. Hilda is hurt when her mac turns up - on a bonfire guy which is paraded round the Rovers by two lads, Nigel Johnson and Gary Pearce, much to the amusement of the regulars who donate generously to the boys.
