Let’s meet the residents of Henford-on-Bagley:

Moody & McMillan Household

Household Description

After working an office job for more years than he’d care to admit, Derek found a man willing to live the rustic dream of his youth and the two moved to his family cottage and never left. When not fending off financial offers from developers who see their home as a prime target, Ian and Derek balance their days between adventure and quiet, depending on who’s in charge of the agenda. Despite – or perhaps because of – their differences, time has been most kind to these elderly lovebirds, who live a contented retirement as key members of the Henford-on-Bagley community.

The Watson Family Household

Household Description

Inheriting the family estate was always the plan, but Thomas may be in over his head. For a man who equates success with crop size, he’s losing both his confidence and his family. While his wife Rahmi loves the country air, her feelings for her husband are becoming stale and her affections have wandered. The oldest of their three children, Rashidah, feels trapped, preferring to dream of a future outside Henford-on-Bagley – dreams that have sparked something between her and a kindred soul. The two youngest couldn’t be more different! Imran treasures the security of life at home while Maira can be found bravely venturing out into the unknown.
