Storyline

Due to the fuel economy crisis in the country, Grace Brothers has turned off the heating for the day. But as Mrs.Slocomb says "It's like an ice box in 'ere" Management has ordered no heating devices behind the counter, but the staff can't bear it and sneak in items to keep the circulation going. However if Captain Peacock finds out, it could lead to a chilly meeting in Mr.Rumbold's office. Written by Nadia Nassar
