KFH backs SW11tch campaign


PRESS RELEASE - 18th December 2007

 Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward solve riddle of how to name two Battersea branches


Following on from the successful approaches to other businesses in SW11, particularly along Northcote Road which is on the front line of the confusion between Clapham and Battersea, the SW11tch campaign has received firm support from established Battersea estate agents Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward ('KFH').


KFH has two branches in Battersea - one at 108 Northcote Road, the other at 242 Battersea Park Road. They have overcome the riddle of how to name two branches in Battersea with SW11 postcodes without causing confusion to their customers.


In response to an approach from the SW11tch campaign team, Danny Hardy, Sales Manager of Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward’s Northcote Road branch, commented:

"We are very happy to be supporting SW11tch. This worthy campaign will help to further bond the community spirit of Battersea’s local businesses and residents by ending the confusion between the Battersea and Clapham border.


We opened our Battersea branch on Northcote Road and Battersea Park branch on Battersea Bridge Road nearly 20 years ago and are proud to support the local area – it is a great place to live and work."


Commenting on KFH's endorsement and support for the campaign, SW11tch co-Chair Tony Belton said:

" It is very encouraging to receive such great support from Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward. They do Battersea proud by overcoming the supposed difficulty of finding an appropriate way to label two offices in Battersea. KFH provides an example to other firms who seem to have tied themselves in an imaginary knot over the issue.

We are particularly pleased that KFH identifies so positively with the community within which they operate, to the extent that they are part of our local Battersea community. Their approach demonstrates how estate agents can make the SW11tch and delight those who have been concerned about some estate agents perpetuating the confusion between Clapham and Battersea in SW11."
