Brian and Neil chat before the parish council meeting. Neil could hear the bongos from Kate's launch half the night. Lynda was apparently on them a lot and she sends her apologies for not attending the meeting. Eddie turns up which surprises Neil and Brian as he doesn't normally attend.
Kaz and Helen spend time in the garden at the mother and baby unit. Kat remarks that Helen has been subdued since Wednesday's hearing and when Jack cries Kaz makes Helen take him. Helen can't get her mind off the hearing and she opens up to Kaz about what it was like and her fear of what will happen to Henry while he's in Rob's care. Later, Helen discovers self-harm markings on Kaz's arm. Kaz reckons Helen has never done that but Helen says there are other ways of hurting yourself.
Brian gives the conclusions of the Wildlife Trust report to the parish council meeting. Neil raises the benefits that the elves have brought the village. Eddie stands up and suggests that the elves stay in Ambridge but not in the Millennium Wood. After the meeting Brian congratulates Eddie on his business acumen for his ElfWorld idea. At The Bull, Eddie reveals his plans for the elf migration and ElfWorld to Neil: Ambridge has got a new attraction and there's no reason why the Grundys shouldn't make the most of it. Show less
