This week a new coffee shop has materialised at Kingham. It is a small caravan with the most enourmouse flag over it.
One of my fellow passengers commented that he'd rather give this chap his money than FGW. I thought about this for a while and realised that the sharks at FGW are probably charging this guy rent for parking his van there - so it's a lose lose situation.
I think it's a great idea to provide facilties for people - I actually take a flask of tea from home so it doesn't affect me. Nor do they sell the Telegraph or FT.
I therefore feel free to have a list of objections which are entirely unreasonable and selfish:
- It makes the place look like a gypsy encampment
- The generator is noisy and ruins the peace and quiet of the station
- The flag is ridiculous
- The caravan should at least be made to blend in with the cotswold scene.
I could go on for ever but instead I have included a photo so that you may judge for yourselves.
