Now even the local council have no idea that Clapham isn’t part of Wandsworth: is Claphamisation inevitable?
Many years ago I was a judge in the first LGIU Cllr Awards, another judge commented that it was hard to judge between a councillor who achieved something by virtue of their position, as an executive member, perhaps, and those that achieved something because they were a terrier, focused on an issue or cause that they pursued relentlessly and doggedly while they slowly but surely persuaded others.
I have, at times, banged on about the Claphamisation of Battersea, with new arrivals and Yorkshire based supermarkets showing no consideration of the area’s history or geography.
The consultation on the options for the Winstanley and York Road estate will be formally launched this weekend.
If you were interested in visiting Battersea Police Station at the weekend then you might be interested in the information below about the open day and history of the station itself.
If you are at a loose end this weekend there are a plenty of Open House events in Battersea and Wandsworth.
I recently claimed that I was never grumpy, which someone challenged, telling me that my attitude towards those who mistook Battersea for Clapham was textbook grumpiness.
