Unfortunately as these tours are sponsored by our MP only people who are residents of Battersea can come on this tour. However, if you check with your local Council you may find that there will be a tour at some stage for residents of Streatham.
I live in SW18 so does that count me out?

I am with Sky now.  I found BT to be useless.  I think most of them are and never go with Talk/Talk.  I told them three times that I was leaving my address and they then tried to get money out of me for a bill for 6 months after I had left.  They knew ... more »
