The Barnet Eye Advent Calendar - Tuesday 5th December

Welcome to the Barnet Eye advent Calendar. Every day during advent, we'll be giving you a little treat and also plugging a great local charity, so you can be entertained and then show your goodwill to all men!

And for todays little Advent treat !!!!!

Did you know that in 1969 Mill Hill lead the way in "virtual shopping", nearly 40 years before cyber Monday and Amazon took off ! Checkout this Pathe News video from 1969 where we learn that Mill Hill was a hotbed of cyber shopping before the internet was even a twinkle in an eyelid !


And for our good cause today we haveLearning Through Horses Charity Partnership http://www.thegoodneighbourschememhbo.com/ - If you haven't heard of them, this is what they do

Louise, who is the Charity Administrator wrote to us and said    
"I have seen your Barnet Eye posts on Twitter and Facebook and would be grateful if you could give Strength and Learning Through Horses Charity Partnership a mention as one of your advent charities of the day.

The Charity is based at stables in Edgware and assists vulnerable and disadvantaged young people and adults from across Barnet and North London through therapy and education services, building confidence, developing interpersonal skills and developing vital skills required to further their employment.
More information can be found on our website and donations can be made online by following this link https://mydonate.bt.com/charities/learningthroughhorses"
For me, this is exactly what the Barnet Eye Advent Calendar is all about. A great chance for small, local organisations, doing great work, to make new friends and find new supporters. 

If you want your local charity or organisation to feature in this years advent Calendar, then simply - 

We'd also love to hear from you if you know of any great videos to share as our daily Gem
