PlotEdit

Elsie throws her rubbish into Hilda's yard. Hilda turns her radio on full to annoy Elsie. Eddie advises Hilda to stand aloof to confuse Elsie. She refuses; she's going to fight fire with fire. When Len accuses Elsie of being too old to rage battle with Hilda she goes crazy. She storms into No.13 and turns Hilda's radio off. Stan and Len stops Hilda and Elsie from fighting. Len suggests they go into arbitration. Steve sends Gail and Suzie Valentines. Suzie is disappointed it wasn't from Nick Partington. Gail sends Steve one. Philippa Robson goes to the youth club at the Centre. Len suggests Hilda and Elsie start afresh. Elsie agrees but Hilda refuses. Ken realises Philippa is after a father. He tells Sally it doesn't bother him.
