The Archers - 31/05/2009

Under-used Eddie is pleased that Tony still needs him to spread the woodchip mulch on the new wetland drainage system. Later in the pub he teases Mike about his younger woman! Mike protests that Vicky is great, and they're really getting on well together. Eddie says he's only joking, and that Mike and Vicky should meet up with him and Clarrie soon. He then finds out from Mike when Oliver and Caroline are going to be away, saying Clarrie needs to know as she wants a Grange Farm rose for her display for the flower festival - and she needs a photo of Oliver too. Tom and Brenda contrive to get Mike, Pat and Tony together so that they can announce their engagement to them. They all meet up at Bridge Farm at lunchtime. Everyone is amazed and warm in their congratulations, but Mike makes a point of having a quiet word with Tom as soon as he can. He's seen Brenda very upset recently and he wants Tom to know that her happiness really matters to Mike. Tom is able to reassure him that he has learned from his recent mistakes. Brenda's happiness means everything to him too. He loves her, and he won't let her down. Episode written by Simon Frith.
