They can't get on the path because of the cars.
@elvis presley You left out cyclists cluttering up the footpath or taking up too much room on the road outside.
The moan shop should be open only for one hour a day , in order to promote further moaning,. Cars will be obliged to park on the pavement outside, preference will be given to owners of small, yappy uncontrollable dogs and a beggar/ junkie/ wino will be encouraged to be sat outside.
Actually DM if the moaning enterprise you suggest proved successful might you perhaps be tempted to franchise it? Apparently moaning is an English (and perhaps also a British?) national characteristic so I feel sure there would be a demand for moaning centres throughout the country. For those interested in moaning rituals and other aspects of English culture a read of "Watching The English - ...
I think I may have spotted a business opportunity elsewhere that would work in Dawlish. As the Natwest building is still closed, I am thinking of opening a MOAN-IN CENTRE in the vacant premises.

Booking and payment in advance. ...
Margaret Swift, the traffic that early on a Saturday is negligible. 20 to 25 coaches are hardly going to make much of a difference. I wonder if the people of Okehampton moaned as much as you lot when this fantastic event was held there this year???

I have just driven to London to drop a friend at the M4 North Circular Junction from Heston services to the North Circular it took 1hr 50 mins to cover 4 miles it then took 1hr 45mins back to Bristol 106 miles. I have yet to see a horrific que in this area yes at times there is a little congestion but nothing to get concerned over i am certain that will change as more houses are built but hey ...
Oh, so the buses are going to fly through the air and not join the horrific traffic queues on the already congested road in and out of Dawlish!! I think we might be taliking about pink pigs flying here!!
They're being bussed in from their regions, so traffic issues will be minimal.
