Tweets of the Week in The London Borough of Barnet 7/6/2015

It's that time of the week again, where we look at our locality through the eyes of our local twitter community. So without further ado, here's the ones which have caught our eye. By the way, a few people have emailed me and asked how I chose the tweets of the week and how you get one. The answer is simple, I do a search through all the tweets in our neighbourhoods (ie Edgware, Burnt Oak, Hendon, etc) and if I think something is interesting, it goes on the list. If it has a picture, even better. I also make note of interesting ones as I go along. It isn't a noticeboard for political events, so please don't ask why I didn't put your tweet up about your meeting on Friday. That isn't the point

1. Looking for something to do of in Burnt Oak? Altogether Better BO recommend joining a reading group

6. One of our fave tweeters, Mark Amies is on the button again with this great picture of K Garage. I loved this building as a kid. It was my ambition in life to own it. I'd still love to. Would make it into Mill Hill's answer to The Ace Cafe, a  den of iniquity for petrol heads and rock and rollers!  I'd even put the petrol pumps back out the front and have attendents to fill your car up. I'd also put an E Type Jag in the Display booth under the clock! This is one massively neglected landmark, should be listed

Reminds me of this car showroom in Mill Hill

7. It seems the Tories were right all along! The SNP have taken over! (Ed Note: When I wrote this blog in 2008 for the Local paper, I rang the SNP and asked if I could stand for the Party in Finchley and they told me to get lost )

8. Joy Wolfe is clearly a very sensible soul. I couldn't have phrased this tweet better if I'd tried

No disrespect to Pol.Supt.Usher asking is for evidence Golders Green Neo Nazi rally will be antisemitic but what else could it possibly be?

9. Another great piccie from another of our favourite tweeters. Love this one from Donald Lyven!

Saw Helimed 27 pass over Finchley on Saturday; in front of the sun!

 10. Mill Hill Music Complex think you should follow the Mill Hill Music Festival on Facebook, so you know all about the wonderful events that will be taking place 12-20th June in Mill Hill. We coundn't agree more.

Once again we are proud to be sponsoring the Mill Hill Music Festival. Check the MHMF Facebook page for latest news

That's all folks. I think we've had a great weeks tweeting, some brilliant piccies this week, I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.
