Lucia discovers why Georgie is hiding himself away - he has shingles,so she lets him stay at Grebe,where he grows a beard to mask the marks on his neck but has to dye it as the hairs are grey. Lucia dabbles in the stock market and her shares in the South African gold mine Siriami pay dividends,inspiring other Tilling residents to follow her example. When the shares peak everybody sells at a profit - except Mapp and new husband Benjy,who are less fortunate with their pay-out. At the same time both Mapp and Lucia decide to stand against each other for seats on the local council.
