1. We got to know our good friend Mark Amies through his campaign to protect the Railway pub in Edgware. It seems he's got his sights set on another much loved and neglected Edgware pub. What is wrong with the people who care nothing for local community?
What was The Change of Hart, an old coaching inn. Was closed, supposedly to be a restaurant, but work stopped ages ago. Left in suspended animation, much like the #railwayhoteledgware. Apparently owned by same company. @Barneteye @PubsSaving @jscott110 pic.twitter.com/1HWpwN6gHV— Mark Amies (@Superfast72) January 12, 2020
2. We've been promoting the excellent Barnet Libraries local photography competition. We are delighted that another of our friends won it.
We are pleased to announce the winning entry for the 'I love Barnet' photographic competition. Taken by Mark from Burtonhole Lane NW7, overlooking Totteridge Valley.
