Amanda at Shell Station

“I stop here today because I need some fuel, for the v-power. That is my main reason for coming here. I’ve got 3 daughters and 2 dogs. A house full. The girls think they live in a hotel, but that’s kids in general, right? Deep down inside they appreciate me. They will have a shock when they move out!”

“We are married for 31 years. We come here 2 or 3 times a week, for a few years now. The staff is lovely, we know most of them. We come for a coffee before we go. The coffee is great. It adds a little brightness to your day.”

“I’m at this station everyday, to fill up. I spend sometimes 12 to 13 hours a day in my lorry. It has everything. I bring my food, my radio, everything. I actually sing a lot in the lorry. I’m a happy person!”

“We are on holiday for a few days and this Shell station is a convenient stop for us, before we go on to the motorway. We have been married for 45 years. And still going strong! This is what we say to young people: life is not a dress rehearsal. If you want to do something, get on and do it, as we have done.


Mark at Shell station

“I’m heading to see my son, who is out fishing about twelve miles from here. Just some riding on the bike. I’m a lorry driver for a living, so I spend a lot of time on the road. It’s nice to be out.”


Nick at Shell station

“I restore old cars for a living. My car is really special to me, did some work on it already. Just to get to know it. I want to take the engine out and rebuild it. I only put V-power in my car, to keep the engine happy.”

"We are heading to Nottingham, we got a really big champs game in roller derby. It is pretty much rugby on skates. We got to keep the tradition now with Leicester winning. Premier League and all that. And it is also a tradition to come to Shell to get a Costa on the way to every away game. We are the Leicestershire Dolly Rocket Rollers. We are known for our glitter!”
