The Wheatsheaf in Tooting is Britain's 101st Asset of Community Value. It has been Locally Listed too. Wandsworth Council's meeting for the Article 4 Direction on Tuesday 19th November 2013 decided to defer any decisions until June. [details]
There is also a campaign to prevent the loss of the Victorian Prince of Wales in Battersea Bridge Road which is yet another pub under threat of conversion to retail & flats.
The George IV on Brixton Hill is now a Tesco Express. [More...]. The pub's Asset of Community Value listing proved to be of little value to the community in this instance as Tesco already had possession and no planning permission for change of use was required.

Pub of the Year 2013
All 1500+ CAMRAswl members received a ballot paper with the branch Christmas mail out in December for them to vote for the CAMRAswl Pub of the Year 2013.
The eight pubs on the short list are all excellent and any one of them would have been a worthy winner.
The result was announced from the festival stage at 4pm
The Mayor of Wandsworth, Cllr. Angela Graham, announced the winning pub from the stage at 4pm on Thursday 6th February 2014.
- 1st. Hand in Hand, 7 Crooked Billet, Wimbledon, SW19 4RQ.
- 2nd. Old Sergeant, 104 Garratt Lane, Wandsworth, SW18 4DJ.
- 3rd. Nightingale, 97 Nightingale Lane, Balham, SW12 8NX.
Congratulations to each of them, which are all Young's pubs. This is the first time for many years that a Freehouse is not the winner.
Even non CAMRAs member could vote in our 'Just for Fun' poll to the right. This poll was won by the Fox & Hounds in Latchmere Road, Battersea however this has no bearing on the official ballot.
