/ Tea vans !!!!

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
My girlfriend and I are pondering finding some way out of rubbish jobs and stuff and are considering buying a tea van. Anyone on here know about regs and rules etc over location and who one can get permission off assuming you can't just turn up on spec so to speak. The A5 in Ogwen is crying out for a decent tea van (by the Milestone say) and we've got quite a few ideas for other locations but what do you lot think ?
Any constructive advice as to where we can get such info appreciated :-)

Good luck with your plan, however I don't think the ogwen valley needs a tea van. Plenty of cafes nearby and no matter how hard you try I feel the litter would become a problem.

I would have said the same about a proposal for a coffee van at Stanage Plantation car park. After all, there are loads of tea shops in Hathersage. But the one that is there is brilliant, run by a really friendly couple serving excellent coffee and snacks. Ideal before you jump in your car and head home without the faff of parking up and queuing for a mediocre brew.

Good luck to the OPs I say!
