Lucia is renting 'Mallards' from Mapp whilst she finds a place of her own and instantly angers Mapp when she and Georgie inform Mapp that her priceless Blumenfeld piano is little more than a hurdy-gurdy and banished from the drawing room. Mapp does manage to beat Lucia on one count as Lucia is paying Mapp's gardener to tend the grounds of Mallards but he neglects her flower beds to nurture Mapp's vegetables,which she sells in the town. However Lucia has the last word when,inspired by the success of the Riseholme pageant and encouraged by vicar Bartlett,she throws a charity garden party,which is a huge success and commended by all - except Mapp. Written by

Did You Know?
Directly after the scene where Lucia and Georgie attend the Art Exhibition and we see their artworks on display, they enter the dining room at Mallards and Lucia's drawing is on the wall above the mantelpiece. See more

I'm sorry, dear one, but I cannot possibly permit it. The ragtag and bobtail of Tilling passing through my house, tramping on my flower-beds, ruining the carpets...

The price of admission will be half a crown, all the doors to the rooms will be locked, and I am sure nobody in Tilling would be so ill-bred as to force them open.
