  1. I Understand the excitement – the detailed local maps AND the information about Council Services. I especially liked it cos we lived near-ish to the border of the London Boroughs of Greenwich AND Lewisham. So now not only did I have the Meridian Line but now a local authority boundary to which I could go “beep” in the car everytime I thought we passed one.

  2. At the risk of sounding impossibly pompous, a very little went an awful long way when I was growing up. I get the feeling the arrival of a new copy of Thompson’s Local Directory would not merit a single line in the diary of anyone who is 10 years old in 2011.
