My apoligies if I offend anyone, but to my uneducated mind East Anglia was to be in my South EAst England option

You say where do we come from?

Do you mean where were we born or where do we live now?

These days I live in Norfolk, so I have added this to South East England as requested. I am guessing this is what was wanted.

On the other hand, I was born in Derbyshire - so that's Midlands (I suppose).

Well done Gavin - I was going to say that. I am certainly not in the North of Scotland but i'm not in the South either! It makes a change mind due for Scotland to be split up at all... still, since "East Anglia" gets a seperate section (for whatever reason!) I suppose Scotland should be split up a little more than that!

Born a Yellowbelly but I'm not sure East Anglia covers me (Lincolnshire)...ah well, ticked it anyway.

My wife tells me south east probably fits best. She's a local so I'll take her word for it. Me, I got confused once I got below Morcambe, I'd thought everything below there was just "South" !

has it been decided if we are saying where we where born, or where we live????????

Nick

Not too sure what to tick as my family come from Rutland (Midlands) but I was born in Cambridge (East Anglia), grew up and was a Scout in Canada (International) moved to Sheffield for many years (People's Republic Of South Yorkshire!) and now live in Berkshire (Southern England). May be I'll just tick lots of the boxes!

I think the idea is to see where Escouters live currently

Durham - specifically Aycliffe...

Why is north East spelled with an 'e'?

Because I can't spell,


has it been decided if we are saying where we where born, or where we live????????

It was just a question of where do you do your scouting?

I must say i was expecting most Ecouters to live in London given London has by far the greatest population out of all those regions
