It was a surprise to meet Mark Miller at Chandler’s Ford train station on Monday.
Mark Miller is the Three Rivers Community Rail Partnership officer. He was selling coffee for commuters that morning.
Who said Chandler’s Ford is a place without soul? Look at Chandler’s Ford train station. It is small and sweet. You can pick up a good book, buy a CD or a hand-made card. Coffee and tea, cakes, and biscuits are comparatively cheaper. There are also free Metro newspapers.
My son bought a small chocolate and I bought a croissant at a discount. We spent £0.60.
Some of you may drive, fly or glide to get to places, or you may own a free bus pass. Would you like to know how much a commoner like me pay for the train?
On Monday I spent £30 on a rail card, £31.30 for London, and an open ticket of £14.75 to send my child to his grandparents near Woking.
Just like a sparrow
This little pleasing Chandler’s Ford train station often reminds me of a Chinese idiom: 麻雀虽小, 五脏俱全 (má què suī xiǎo wǔ zàng jù quán) – Though a sparrow is small, it possesses all the vital organs — small but complete.
Talking about sparrows, do you know that during the Great Leap Forward from 1958-1962, Chairman Mao ordered the Four Pests Campaign? His aim was to get rid of rats, flies, mosquitoes, and sparrows. The countryside was later infested with locusts with The Great Sparrow Campaign.
