Fishworks comes up trumps...again


PRESS RELEASE - 6th December 2007

Fishworks set the pace with its tack from Clapham to Battersea, and has come up trumps again! 


Fishworks on Northcote Road was a heroic SW11tch Back to Battersea business when it first set up. 

Before Fishworks opened for business on Northcote Road, residents noticed that the hoarding at the front of the restaurant advertised that Fishworks was about to open its newest branch in "Clapham". At the time a supporter of the SW11tch campaign raised the issue with Fishworks as did one of the campaign team. The result was a very fast and generous SW11tch by the owners of the business who had the advertisement on the hoarding changed to advertise the opening of their new branch in "Battersea"!

Since then the SW11tch campaign has quoted Fishworks as an example to many others.

But horror of horrors, having tacked back from Clapham to Battersea Fishworks website was this week noticed to be providing the following contact details for their Northcote Road restaurant:

                 Battersea  - 54 Northcote Road, Clapham, London SW11 1PA

The SW11tch campaign team contacted Jo Harvey at Fishworks and in less than a day she had had their website changed so that this branch is now advertised (see: as: 

                 Battersea  - 54 Northcote Road, Battersea, London SW11 1PA

Mitch Tonks, famous Founder of Fishworks offered these words of support and comment:

"Fishworks are delighted to support the SW11tch Campaign. When we first arrived here we were ourselves a little unsure where we were opening until residents firmly let us know we had 'arrived' in Battersea.

Northcote Road is a fantastic location for us and we look forward to welcoming more Battersea residents to our restaurant." 

Philip Beddows, co-Chair of the SW11tch Back to Battersea Campaign praised Fishworks:

"We are so grateful to Mitch for the very generous and rapid response he has made to our call to support our campaign. Yet again Fishworks has come up trumps for Battersea.

Now we have Fishworks safely in the arms of our Battersea net, we hope never to lose them again!"
