This is Symmetry, also by Matthew Chambers (see yesterday’s post).

Looking at my webstats for last month (June) I see many visitors coming to this site searching for the same themes: graffiti tagging, War of the Worlds, the Oxted Pram Race (which is being held this coming week), and various items of local information.

Something that has been quite a popular search that has led visitors to this site over the past months has been Camp Coffee.  From an article last year on brands that refuse to die out, asks why our taste buds are drawn to the past:

Camp Coffee is marketed as coffee and chicory essence with added sugar, but strictly speaking - at 4 per cent coffee and 26 per cent chicory - it is sugar with added chicory and coffee.

Amazingly, for such a British product, Camp is “made in the EU”, according to the bottle, which directs consumers to write to Cathy Richards at McCormick for more info. Surprisingly, Richards exists. “I get loads of people saying they’re 84 or whatever years old and they can’t believe we can still get Camp,” she says. Camp, one must imagine, will soon get a trendy make-over; at least one celebrity chef has included a dash of Camp in a recipe.
