When a fire destroys the ugly rectory, there is much discussion among the Thrush Green townsfolk about what will become of the vacant site, now that the previous residents (the village rector and his wife) have been transferred to another village. Everyone is cheered when it is decided to build some retirement homes, and so Rectory Cottages begin to take shape, designed by a local architect. But then feelings run high and wagging tongues are again engaged over the question of who will live in these new homes. And after those people are chosen, will they get along together? There are plenty of wrinkles to iron out before any newcomers will feel at home in Thrush Green. Download and start listening now!
