The Barnet Eye Advent Calendar - Saturday 20th December

Five days to go until Santa comes down the Chimney.  We've been enjoying this series, we hope you have. Today we visit Hendon, which back in 1917 was leading the world in the field of flying. Our video today looks at the historic Graham White flying school. An amazing video showing a trainee pilot receiving instruction in the art of flying

It really is amazing to think just how far the aviation industry has come.

There are still some great things going on in Hendon. Tonight you can join me at 8.30 where I'll be performing a short set of music with my band as part of the open mic night. I relly hope to see you there. It's free to get in and should be a great night, there are some awesome musicians coming.

And our charity today is one close to my heart.Cherry Lodge Cancer Care provides support for people living with Cancer - - They say about themselves.

Cherry Lodge Cancer Care is an independent charity committed to improving the quality of life for people living with cancer, their carers, family and friends.
At Cherry Lodge, we work alongside the clinical care of the NHS in an area centred on Barnet and covering much of North London and South Hertfordshire. We are based at the very friendly and welcoming Cherry Lodge Centre, in Union Street, Chipping Barnet. We also have an Outreach Service with an impact across the borough of Barnet, concentrating particularly on providing information and support to members of black and minority ethnic groups. Our Befriending Service provides additional support for people in their own homes.
