If you want to nominate, the simplest and quickest thing is just to post a comment at the bottom of this page. You don’t even have to read anything else here, if you don’t want to. Just jump right down and get typing…
If you do want more info, here’s the blurb:
Crap Towns is back. By unpopular demand. If you have a nomination, we’d love to hear from you.
Once again, we’re eager to hear your stories of woe, misery and despair. We want to know all about your unhappy hometowns and we want more mad poetry of wreck, ruin, dissolution – and also the strange joy and beauty that can make a Crap Town.
Delightfully, people have already deluged us with emails in about Chipping Norton, Wrexham, Watford, Tilston and similar. (Had you even heard of Tilston? Us neither. Apparently, it’s pretty crap.) We’re putting up our favourite nominations as fast as we can. Currently they’re appearing in the sidebar to the right of this page under “recent posts”.
More will be arriving soon. In the meantime, we’ve also received nominations for Winsford, Bridlington, Sunderland, Cambourne, Crawley, Weston-Super-Mare, Fraserborough, Redruth, St Austell, Witney, Watford, Dursley, Worthing, Herne Bay and Swindon, to name just a few. If anyone’s got further information on any of those, it would be much appreciated… They’re on the radar…
You can leave a nomination, or post an entry by commenting anywhere on this site. Or by emailing in to: CrapTownsSamemail@example.com
We’re also going to be keen to hear from you if you disagree with anything on the site. We’re always eager to correct inaccuracies and we’d also love to include eloquent defences as well as attacks on towns.
Excitingly, we’re also going to include a list of the Top Ten improved towns in the new book. Come in Hull – your time could be up. If anyone from a town that appeared in the Crap Towns books one and two wants to make a case for their exclusion this time around, do get in touch.
Here’s the small print: By sending in an entry to CrapTownsSamfirstname.lastname@example.org or posting on this site, you acknowledge that we may use your words in any forthcoming publications about Crap Towns – and we may also edit and alter those words. Also bear in mind that we will use the name with which you sign your entries – so if you wish to maintain anonymity or hide behind a pseudonym, please let us know.
Oh and comments are moderated… Mainly so we don’t get our bottoms sued from us. Sorry if your nomination doesn’t appear. Don’t worry! We will have received it and will have counted it in the great race to find the worst town…
… So please, stay in touch!
