Daily Mail Weekend Magazine Archers Update Jan 13-18

As we all know, the annual arrival of strawberry-pickers to Ambridge brings a flush to many a cheek, and a pillow full of tears for others. Alice, however, has a wheeze that could cut out this seasonal frolicking - a strawberry-picking robot. It would put an end to all those larks in the polytunnels, and it won’t be the only potentially life-changing proposalcoming the Aldridge clan’s way this week.
Also, as many of us have guessed, Philip - Kirsty’s current squeeze - has a dark hinterland, and light will be shone upon it.
Meanwhile, belts are tightened at Brookfield, Emma is anxious, Susan spots something suspicious, and one Ambridger makes a shocking decision.

You can get a cream for that now.


Yes, but I wouldn’t use it if it makes your skin as thin as Kirsty’s.
