Keep the 19 bus route in Battersea

The number 19 bus runs from Battersea Bridge Road to Finsbury Park and is a well-used route connecting thousands of people every day from the borough to central and north London. Under proposals put forward by the Mayor the route will be changed so it only runs from Finsbury Park to Holborn where it will terminate.

Many thanks to lovely folk at KPMG Thames Clippers for putting on a special free service so the pupils and staff from Sheringdale could arrive in style for their special day at the O2. We hope that parents and staff who couldn't be there (or couldn't make out the children amongst 8000+ other white "dots"!) enjoy this special souvenir of the day. www.thamesclippers.com/about/about-us.html @thamesclippers http://www.sheringdale.org/
