It would be handy if a poster was to give the county as well as the district.


KenSE Report 21 May 2013 16:17

Sometimes districts straddle counties and even countries.


Maddie Report 21 May 2013 16:17

totally agree, well at least an area and dates help to :-)


Fredk Report 21 May 2013 16:24


Agree dates as well

Since doing this my knowledge of England has got better...Wales not sure about still....It's the small towns and villages which can be difficult, I normally end up googling.

It can also be tricky if there is more than one place with the same name, Like Royston or Newport to name a couple

This has been suggested several times ............ and is included in at least one of the stickied "tips" threads

Unfortunately, people simply do not read any times, whether they are provided by GR, by members and stickied, or in posts like this one

It would certainly make our lives much easier if people did include counties and dates ........... and sometimes even the country!!

I used to think it was only men who didn't read instructions ................. but it now seems to be everybody :-D :-D :-D
