Didn’t know Peterborough was in Cambridgeshire

BUT I DO NOW!

It is, but it is also its own unitary authority, separate from Cambridgeshire County Council and associated districts.

It is

I wouldn’t worry: the ‘Soke’ used to be part of Northamptonshire until the mid-60s, then Huntingdonshire until the mid-70s, so it’s an understandable mistake to make.

There’s loads of machines in my house turning things round and round and making them hot and/or clean

I’m just trying to offer Jordan reassurance, but all you want to do is kick him when he’s down…

Hey, I was straight in with a comment on this post! Your talk of the Soke was pure “three socialist mayors” stuff (though I quite liked it).

I had been in an IMPORTANT BUSINESS meeting for an hour.

Bring back the Soke of Peterborough, i say!!!

Second best city in cambridgeshire behind ely, obviously

City centre pubs are shite, but there are some gems if you know where to look (same as any city i guess).

Palmerston arms, hand and heart…

IT IS NOW!

I remember the Prince Albert in Ely being OK. Real cloth cap and whippet type place. The Cutter is also OK for the nice outside seating in summer.
