Wynonie - i live at rising bridge and our postal address has always been Accrington. We do live in Rossendale though because Hyndburn doesnt start until just after where the house that stands on its own after hollands but just before where the cottages start.

I bet they will give you one but wont empty it.
Hyndburn always appears to have capital money but no revenue money. I have no idea how they split the bit pot into the two pots but they never get it right.

The more people think about it, the more issues come to light. All the bins have the Hyndburn crest on. Not that visitors will notice but when are these to be changed?

...and at what cost?

As well as all other council property that has the HBC logo, such as vans, trucks, gritters, bin wagons, to name but a few.

Gonna go for 1.5 million as the total cost to do a complete wipe and refresh for the new.

But according to Mr Britcliffe it won't add a penny to the Council Tax.

Whatever it is or isn't going to cost, I can think of one hundred and one places, or services in Hyndburn, that would benefit more from this money.

When I lived in Scotland I paid my council tax to Strathclyde Regional Council. That's the only time the name was used. When I was asked where I lived I answered Glasgow. The same applies to Hyndburn.

Still the same G. Still dont understand how it will not cost a penny extra on council tax unless the money has already been "found"

Shouldn't all these things have been thought of before it was announced as a fact and before the various crests were designed (be interested to know how much that cost Graham)?

And, dare I say it, before you and others in the Labour party gave your approval to the idea so readily?

Agreed, no one in the country knows where Hyndburn is, but does it really matter? They know where all the towns which make up Hyndburn are.

Seems to me to be a total waste of money, and reminds me of when British Airways spent a fortune on rebranding themselves with a fancy new logo on their plane's tails...and then changed it back at even more cost.

You can spend money forever rebranding yourselves, but to me services are what are important, not the name on the Town Hall's letter paper, vans etc.



(Example of costly rebranding...that fools no one.)
It was the biggest waste of time known to man renaming it in the first place. Nobody wanted the change anyway. Seems to me like thay would be better off to leave it the way it is.

And just wait until something is really needed and then they'll tell us that there is no money available.

Re: Hyndburn to be axed.

Like a good citizen, I've just put out my recycling box and sacks, all bearing the name, and logo of Hyndburn.

Has the replacement cost of the many thousands of boxes and recycling sacks, as well as the wheelie bins, been added to the calculation of the cost of changing the borough's title?

When the name changes... what box will you put all your different hyndburn bins/sacks in? Will it be marked Irony?

I will be putting in a large claim for my hyndburn.co.uk domain name

I actually thought about you today, when I saw your site name listed on Google, along with many others with Hyndburn in their name..

Better go and register thepeoplesrepublicofaccringtonanddistrict.co.uk quickly.
