Children leave for school and the daily routines begin at the newsagent's, butcher's, bakery, post office, garage, pub, basket makers', pottery and piggery. People are at the hairdressers, repairing buildings and cars, cleaning the church. The milk and post delivery and mobile fish and chip van punctuate the day until the children's return and evening playtime, bell ringing and start of rehearsals for the winter pantomime at the pub.
