Deirdre is shocked that Blanche is selling her dressmaking business. Blanche says it's too much for her while she's running the shop. Ray advertises for a joiner. Ethel Needham is interested in the business but Blanche doesn't know how much to ask for. They agree on £300. Jill Marriott applies to be a joiner at the yard. Ray doesn't think it's a job for a girl and tells Deirdre to get shot of her. Deirdre realises Jill is talented and decides to fight her corner. Alf puts Albert down for meals on wheels as the old man is tired of cooking for himself. Betty tells a shocked Blanche that Gordon is strongly considering selling the shop and this will leave her with no job whereas she previously had two. Ray gives Jill a test which she passes with flying colours and takes her on with a month's trial when Deirdre threatens to leave the yard if he doesn't.
