PlotEdit

A tearful Annie misses Joan and insists that the clock she bought them is properly fixed. They wonder if Albert has received an answer to his letter and Jack contemplates retirement if the Street is to be demolished. Annie still refuses to believe the rumour. David has gone to play his first match for County - an away game. Frank still worries about his future. He and Ida read in the Football Pink that at half-time David has scored the only goal so far in the match. Elsie prepares to go out for a party to say goodbye to a girl from Miami Modes who's moving to Australia. Dennis' syndicate wins on a third dividend. He reveals he paid Elsie's sub for her when she forgot. Hearing the overall syndicate has won a couple of hundred thousand, she rushes out to celebrate without hearing how much her share is. Albert receives a formal acknowledgement to his letter from the Town Hall. Elsie buys drinks all round in the Rovers. Ena is jealous and also annoyed to hear that Minnie was told that she was barred from the residents' demolition protest meeting. Harry wants to invite Concepta to a dance but hears from Annie that she might already be going anyway. David returns home to a sulky Frank who's annoyed he didn't ring ahead. Nevertheless the two are happy with the overall 3-0 win for County. Elsie buys drinks for all the girls from Miami Modes. Ena thinks the pools win will kill Elsie within twelve months. She is surprised to hear that Martha has been playing the pools for years and starts their own syndicate with her and Minnie. Elsie arrives home drunk at 2.30am. She talks about how much she's spent on drinks and is horrified to learn from Dennis that her share of the syndicate is probably only £1 10/-.
