It’s 1983 and Jack Sheffield returns to Ragley village school for his seventh year as headteacher. A new teacher arrives and tongues start to wag!

Five-year-old Madonna Fazackerly makes her mark in an unexpected way, life changes dramatically for Ruby the Caretaker and, in the village Coffee Shop, Dorothy Humpleby plans a dirty weekend.

It’s the time of the new CD player, Microsoft’s Word software, the McDonald’s McNugget, cabbage patch dolls, the threat of a miners’ strike and a final farewell to the halfpence piece.

Meanwhile Jack has to manage a year of triumph and tragedy...
