The Jakson family live in Chester. They rent house. They want to buy their own house so they save money when they can.
Daniel Jakson works in factory in Manchester — it’s not a bad job but it’s a long way for him to go work. His wife, Fill, is a secretary in a school.
The Jacksons have two teenage children. They are both at school, and when Jill finishes work, she drives to their school and then takes them home.
