Fred returns to the Rovers, minus his appendix. The brewery sends him two tickets for the annual dance. Emily campaigns for funds to repair the Mawdsley Street Chapel roof. Fred asks Rita to go to the dance with him but with quick thinking she says she has to visit a sick child in hospital. Emily asks Bill if he can repair the chapel roof but Bill thinks the job is too big for him. Mavis doesn't know if she can ever face Alan Livesey again. Kevin boosts Bill's confidence and he agrees to give Emily an estimate for the chapel job. Fred asks Bet to go to the dance with him. She knows that she's a last resort and tells him it's not right that she should go when Betty is more senior. She turns the invitation down.
