Summary

It's 1980: recession and unemployment have hit Britain, a royal wedding is on the way, and the whole country is wondering Who shot JR? As Jack returns for his fourth year at Ragley-on-the Forest School, there's a definite chill in the air. Village schools are being closed down all over the place - will his be one of them?

As school life continues - Vera, the school secretary, has to grapple with a new-fangled electric typewriter, Ruby celebrates 10 years as the school cleaner, and the village panto throws up some unusual problems. Jack wonders what the future holds....
