Why oh why do people make the single biggest investment of their life’s, spending tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds and then fail to furnish it with a £2.00 number. How they expect people to find them when I regularly find whole sides of a street with only one or two houses numbers between them I don't know. It’s bad enough in daylight but how on earth can they expect the emergency services to reach them in a crisis at night. Come on folks you can even get self-adhesive numbers buy one for your house now; it may save your life one day. Maybe there is a business or fund-raising idea here apparently it’s been tried successfully in other countries so why not here.
And maybe we should ban those pretentious house names and numbers in an illegible script. Whilst on the subject I know of at least one street in Barrow numbered 12/a instead of 13 and another which doesn’t have a number thirteen at all.
