Reader Treats Just For You!

Fancy earning £25 in 20 minutes? Here you go!

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest features here.


A quick call-out to anyone (men or women) who travel on the Great Western Railway from Oxford to London. Yes commuter, you! Yes demon-shopper, you! Yes, er, man with gun, you!

Basically, Mr Muddy’s ad agency would like to bend your ear on the blower for a max of 20 minutes, at a time convenient to you, either today or tomorrow. Nothing personal or weird – I get all that special stuff –  this will just be some peasy questions about how you use the train. Perhaps the type of coffee you prefer and where your favourite seat is (I’m making this up, how do I know?!).

Anyway, for your trouble you’ll get £25 so it’s easy money.

He’s particularly interested – excited even! – to talk to anyone in Kingham and Charlbury.


If you’re interested in taking part, just email me briefly at and I’ll get the man himself to contact you. Otherwise, if you know someone who takes the train and might want to earn some quick spondoolies, please let them know or forward this post.

A bonus Muddy hug if you can name the two Hollywood films from the pics above.

Choo Choo!
