Don't doubt that. But there's nothing to debate. Won't happen. 


gone from not believing, to now not happening.

makes no difference if it does or doesn't happen anyway.

It's mainly instigated by the 'Horwich First' group & in particular one councillor who floated out some sort of opinion survey in which under 2k residents ( or even non residents participated).It always a potent move to knock the Metro council for this & that .

I suspect one of these councillors being a closet red who hates Bolton Wanderers & therefore everything Bolton connected .

But I can't prove it.

Political stunt of the worst kind.

Postcodes say different.

 

Who really cares though? I know I couldn't care less.

Postcodes are totally independent of local government. They were  created as a tool for Royal Mail, and subsequently used for many different circumstances.

aye, according to this, the ground is in Lostock/Bolton, middlebrook is in horwich

I reckon they adjusted the border when they built the ground to ensure the ground was still in Bolton, as I doubt it would have cut through like that when it was all green fields

In my eyes that well and truly pissed on the "Horwich First" bonfire.

I know I don't live in Bowton any more but who gives a flying fk about Horwich? I remember it just slows you down when driving to Chorley

Thetford (Norfolk) has an Ipswich (Suffolk) postcode 

in the early 2000s there was a plan to switch it to a Cambridge postcode in the hope it would bring in investment 

it didn’t happen so I’m assuming the place is still a shithole

Was at a conference and a bloke did a presentation on Ireland introducing new postcodes.

Our's denote an area, their's were just randomly assigned to random addresses all over the country. Seemed a bit mad

This has got juvenile pie eater wind up written all over it.

They actually think that it bothers us that the Stadium is in Horwich - last time i looked Horwich was in Bolton.

Their time would be better spent fretting whether their tinpot outfit will even exist this time next year.

Tick tock.

There was a problem introducing British postcodes in Republican areas. The IRA encouraged postmen to return postcoded mail undelivered as they could only understand the townland system.

Corect re Norwich (early 1960s).

I've never been away, although I have relocated to Staffordshire, so am an extra hour away, and seem to have less time nowadays.
