Series 3, Episode 1 - Homesick

Grandad's not well, his legs are playing him up and the lifts are broken. When Rodney finds himself unwittingly elected to Chairman of the local Residents' Association, Del spies the perfect opportunity to improve their lot.

Further details

The wear and tear of climbing twelve floors in Mandela House takes its toll as Grandad's legs finally give way. And after a visit from the doctor it is recommended that they seek some different housing for the Trotter family - on the ground floor!

Rodney has just been elected Chairman of the Housing Committee, and with a little pressure from Del, he persuades housing and welfare co-ordinator Miss Mackenzie to move the Trotters into a three-bedroom bungalow in Herrington Road.

All seems hunky dory, until Miss Mackenzie catches Del and Grandad sharing a celebratory dance and cancels the deal. An ashamed Rodney agrees to resign as Chairman of the Committee immediately.
