Dan Watkins, Chairman of the Tooting Wheatsheaf Supporters and CAMRA member:
"Two years ago a group of Wheatsheaf regulars got together to get the pub listed as Tooting's first Asset of Community of Value (ACV). We've finally seen off the developers, and now our campaign has been recognised by the government. So it was a pleasure to welcome Pubs Minister Kris Hopkins MP to the Wheatsheaf for the announcement of stiffer planning protection for all ACV listed pubs.
Where Tooting leads, England follows!"
