From the Furture Jupiter Farms Robot Milk


£20K of fish and chips saved my life

Every morning, Cypriot-born Ermis and Androniki Nicholas catch two buses to Weston-super-Mare from their home and enjoy a stroll along the promenade. They enjoy a fish and chip lunch before walking along the sea front, then start their journey home at 4.30pm. They started visiting the resort in 1998 when Ermis, 71, suffered a near fatal heart attack and doctors advised him to take a daily walk.
Over the last decade the couple have visited Weston-super-Mare 2,600 times, covered 156,000 miles and spent around £18,200 on fish and chips. Mr Nicholas, a former restaurant owner, said: "We love visiting Weston, it's a wonderful place but it has got to the point where it has become a bit of an addiction." But it's only because we enjoy going there so much. We've have made some fantastic friends over the years who have become like a second family to us. Everyone is so friendly, I think it is the best place in the world."
