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.

Local business spotlight – Northcote Road SW11

Second instalment of our #DiscoverLocal series, supporting independent businesses in and around London. We first launched this initiative in November 2014 ahead of Small Business Saturday on 6 December to remind you to support, inspire and promote independents businesses, because as tempting as the big crazy offers from the giants might be, the small business owners need our support throughout the year. They are constantly struggling to make ends meet whilst making really small margins, and still they manage to bring very good deals and offer true value for money We hope you enjoy these stories and please contact us if you too are a Small Business with a story to tell. Maybe your products are highly bespoke and allow you to express yourself creatively, maybe you offer a hub for other makers to showcase their products, maybe you simply want to show the world everything that is on offer in your community. We’d love to tell your story.
