Yes, all you lot get Granada up there, don't you?
Actually, no I don't and I can't remember the last time I watched ITV anyway.
In terms of boundaries, I am several miles from Cheshire and a few from Wales. Technically I come under the West Midlands in terms of the county I live in. In terms of where I would go to do things, Birmingham is significantly harder to get to than either Liverpool or Manchester. Liverpool is just on an hour and Manchester is about an hour and 15 as I found out last weekend, and Birmingham is around the 70 miles mark and requries navigating a frequently congested chunk of the M6.

People are understandably elliptical about their location on what is after all a publically accessible forum that will show up entries on a search using any search engine.
Many generalise, like I do, others omit the informaiton entirely.
I work in IT: the one thing you learn very, very early on is to never make assumptions.
Technically I come under the West Midlands, but I live so far north in the region that I regard myself as North West (since places such as Manchester, Liverpool, even Bolton, are significantly nearer to me than Birmingham).
At some point I will offer to organise an event, it's the kind of thing I'd enjoy doing. However, the big challenge is finding a venue and I'd want to sort that out before going public. I'd probably be looking at Chester, south/mid Cheshire. When I have some ideas, I'll let you know and I promise to provide a good few months notice (i.e. 4 - 6).
We've done Chester twice, with two different organisational teams, but both at the same venue. I was heavily involved with Chester 2, in 2009 : I'll dig out the info in a bit
Thanks, I think
