Jed agrees to be caller at the bingo session. Jerry tries to matchmake between Len and Elsie. Christine tells Frank she doesn't want to live in the Street when they are married. Elsie gets it out of Doreen that Len was after the landlord's address. Christine leaves and moves in with Esther. Minnie wins a tray made by Len at bingo. Len explains he wrote to Wormold about repairs. He is hurt that Elsie suspected him and she is angry with herself. The Over 60's Club social goes very well with the bingo and dancing. After they have left the Mission Hall, Jed, Jerry, Sheila and Doreen move in and twist into the night. The music disturbs Fred at the chip shop and, thinking it's the Over-sixties, he says he's going to complain to the police tomorrow about Swindley.
