It is billed as a celebration of his business, but as everyone in the village has been invited, it is obviously more exciting than that. When everyone is assembled, they find that it is a lavish wedding reception for two very surprising people.

With these festivities over, the inhabitants of Turnham Malpas are thrown into preparations of a different nature. It is the 150th anniversary of the village school, and Kate - the head teacher - is arranging a big event. There is the problem of accommodating everyone's enthusiasm as they plan a cricket match, buffet teas, maypole dancing, plays and singing on the green. But there is one problem of which she is unaware. In inviting the previous head teachers, she has asked her predecessor, little realizing that he is married to Suzy, mother of the rector's twins. When it comes to meeting their mother for the first time, the twins don't know how they will feel, and nor, for that matter, do their parents...
