I live in a village/town, but 2 miles from a city (in name), 5 miles from a city (not in name) and 30 miles from London.

'It's complicated'.

There are 3 full time residents in my postcode. Me, the wife and Bert the dog.

That's what you get for living in such a depressing st hole, you probably don't even have a Greggs within walking distance.

Indeed. Nearest Greggs is a 5 day round trip (by foot). It's a nightmare.

It's supposedly a town but the population is a fraction over 2000 so in really just a small village.

Unfortunately it's population sensitive, so I'm no more likely to win than someone in London.

Leafy rural village of 1.5k folk In East Hertfordshire, 30 miles north of London. Rural, but very easy to get into London - 1hr 10 mins house door to desk in Blackfriars.

Yes, but i thought that the prize was divvied up between everyone in your postcode that had a winning ticket, you would get it all, and there would be no reason to buy more than one ticket (if I understand it correctly)

Well yes, and I may be wrong, but the trouble is, I'm MASSIVELY less likely to win, as my postcode has 3 v. +/- 300,000.

If I win, I get the lot, but let's face it, I'm more likely to be a clown in Gerry Cottle's Circus.

He shoots any vegans who come onto his land, and cooks them.

Small village, 50/60 houses, walk a couple of hundred yards in one direction and you get wet feet courtesy of the North sea, at certain times of the year there are more seals than people. No shop/doctor/filling station, nearest about 5 miles away, 2 excellent pubs within a 30 minute walk, 2 buses per week, strangely fast broadband 65 up/20 down, totally ignored by both district and county councils, if something needs fixing we tend to do it ourselves, zero crime in the time we've lived here, beautiful in summer, bit challenging in winter and almost 100% for Brexit.
