Michelin maps

Recommended Posts

The Daily mail have teamed up with Michelin to offer free maps of the UK.

Perhaps they are free because they have mistakes. Warrington is in the wrong place. :roll::unsure:

The map was drawn by Man United fans, they did not want to be associated with being on the banks of the Mersey :wink:

 

Lt, the source of the Mersey is in Greater Manchester. :roll:

Having just had a quick troll to find out the details off how to get the maps.

 

1) you have to buy the paper to collect the tokens.

 

2) when you have enough tokens for all the regional maps then you send them off "with a cheque for £9.99"

 

3) sit back and wait for them to arrive.

 

so at what point are the maps "free" if you have to pay £9.99 to get them?

The only cost is 76p to cover postage.

Greater Manchester does not exist, Stockport has it own council. Stockport is the source of the river Mersey. Not Greater Manchester

Stockport ( /ˈstɒkpɔrt/) is a town in Greater Manchester, England. It lies on elevated ground 6 miles (10 km) southeast of Manchester city centre, at the point where the rivers Goyt and Tame join and create the River Mersey.

You'll be telling us next that Leeds will win the league. :roll: :roll: :wink:

Greater Manchester does not exist. Maggie got rid of it, along with the GLC and a few others. Stockport is in the metropolitan borough of Stockport.

 

Anyway if it's the Daily Mail giving away the maps non of their readers will notice.

Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county in North West England, with a population of 2.6 million.[2] It encompasses one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom and comprises ten metropolitan boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan, and the cities of Manchester and Salford. Greater Manchester was created on 1 April 1974 as a result of the Local Government Act 1972.

 

Greater Manchester spans 493 square miles (1,277 km2).[3] It is landlocked and borders Cheshire (to the south-west and south), Derbyshire (to the south-east), West Yorkshire (to the north-east), Lancashire (to the north) and Merseyside (to the west). There is a mix of high-density urban areas, suburbs, semi-rural and rural locations in Greater Manchester, but overwhelmingly the land use is urban. It has a focused central business district, formed by Manchester city centre and the adjoining parts of Salford and Trafford, but Greater Manchester is also a polycentric county with ten metropolitan districts, each of which has at least one major town centre and outlying suburbs. The Greater Manchester Urban Area is the third most populous conurbation in the UK, and spans across most of the county's territory.

 

For the 12 years following 1974 the county had a two-tier system of local government; district councils shared power with the Greater Manchester County Council. The county council was abolished in 1986, and so its districts (the metropolitan boroughs) effectively became unitary authority areas. However, the metropolitan county has continued to exist in law and as a geographic frame of reference,[4] and as a ceremonial county, has a Lord Lieutenant and a High Sheriff. Several county-wide services were co-ordinated through the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities up until April 2011, when the Greater Manchester Combined Authority was established as the strategic county-wide authority for Greater Manchester, taking on functions and responsibilities for economic development, regeneration and transport.

 

Before the creation of the metropolitan county, the name SELNEC was used for the area, taken from the initials of "South East Lancashire North East Cheshire". Greater Manchester is an amalgamation of 70 former local government districts from the former administrative counties of Lancashire, Cheshire, the West Riding of Yorkshire and eight independent county boroughs.[5]

 

 

Just saying is all :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

so why the £9.99 cheque request?

You should now have enough tokens to get your full collection of maps.

 

 

Simply send them, with a cheque for £9.99, made payable to Daily Mail, to: Michelin UK Maps Offer, PO Box 5002, Dept MRM, Alton, Hants, GU34 9BZ. Please include your full details.

Wolfe

 

They are now there own metropolitan borough councils, and nothing todo with Greater Manchester. Pie eaters pay their council tax to Wigan,Boltonian's pay their council tax to Bolton ect.

 

Before Stockport became part of the old GMC in 1975 it was in Cheshire, and before that it was in Lancashire but so was Manchester.

 

The Police and emergency services still work under the old GMC boundaries :wink:

Lt, I'm not interested in who runs the council or who people pay the council tax to, they are all in Greater Manchester. Or are you saying that the Manchester City Council website is wrong?

Lt, another example to help you understand.

 

St Helens have their own council,

The Wirral (formerly in Cheshire) has its own council.

Knowsley has its own council

Southport is in the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton,

but what do they have in common?

They are all part of Merseyside.

 

So once again and then I give up, are you saying that the website is wrong?
