|ON THIS DAY|
17th February 1988: It's the big day in Beckindale, the sale of Home Farm and the rest of NY Estates' holdings in the area. Alan is tense before the auction and his mood isn't helped when Seth, Jock and Bill turn up at Home Farm. The sale will take place at The Woolpack, so Amos and Henry are busy preparing. Amos suggests getting Caroline to help them behind the bar. Joe tells Sandie that NY Estates has offered her a new job, as assistant to the regional manager in Norfolk. She's not thrilled with the idea of taking a step backwards in her career. The sale gets under way. At the same time Jock has gone to Home Farm. He strolls around and suddenly grabs a stone and throws it through a window. After some tense bidding Joe and Alan manages to get Home Farm, the surrounding land, and the fish farm.
