Swindley organises an Over 60's Club at the Mission. Minnie falls for fellow pensioner Michael Courtney's charms and invites him into the snug, much to Ena's horror. Alf tells Harry he can have his whippets back. Elsie tells Arthur she's had enough of his possessiveness and walks out on him. Emily breaks down and tells Swindley that the lease on her shop is up and the landlord won't renew it. Swindley suggests they amalgamate shops. She is deliriously happy at the suggestion.
