A major celebration is planned in the Cotswold village of Thrush Green: the village school is in its centenary year; and exactly a hundred years ago, one of the village’s most notable residents founded a mission school in Africa. But the preparations are beset with problems: Winnie Bailey’s health is not what it was; the new headmaster doesn’t appear to be entirely right for the job; and there are mixed reactions to the fundraising appeal for the mission school. But when the big day arrives, there are more reasons for celebration than anyone anticipated. Download and start listening now!
