Enjoy our local history with Summerstown 182’s guided walks
2022 Programme coming up!

Geoff Simmons’ guided walks for local history group Summerstown 182 are part of what makes Tooting special. They’re a fun, enjoyable way to learn about Tooting’s past and present. After a great year in 2021, Geoff raises the curtain on plans for 2022:

“A big thank you to everyone who made 2021 such a productive year! Three incredible plaque events; Albert Hill, Marc Bolan and the TMC Studios Reggae Superstars; over thirty walks and ten ‘Zooming Tooting’ talks! It really was a lot of fun and hold on tight because it’s going to get even better. Prepare for some exciting new walks, talks and plaque initiatives to kick off the new year. Frank Kitz wakes up the Wandle on 9th April and following that the Corruganza Boxmakers and The People of Wardley Street are in our sights. Working with schools in this area has been a joy and a great competition fully involves them in the next plaque initiative. ‘Planet Tooting’ celebrates the diversity of the Tooting community and will feature a message on the plaque from a young person.”
