"I'm getting the Christmas Club money out of the post office today". Part of the memorable Christmas club story-line. Arthur had 'borrowed' money from the Walford residents' Christmas Club savings scheme that he had been running, to pay for Michelle's wedding to Lofty. Arthur announced to the members that he had withdrawn the money, then staged a fake burglary at his house and told the police that the Christmas Club money had been stolen. However, the police soon realise that Arthur was lying. He ends up having a break-down and going to prison.
