It must be a bank holiday weekend, the sky is grey and there is a chill in the air. But what have the tweeters of Barnet been up to? Here is our round up.
1. If you follow our Twitter account, it may not surprise you that this tweet is first up. A beautiful picture from the biggest and best supported community social media account in Mill Hill
Angel Pond in Mill Hill is starting to fill up with all the rain we’ve been having, a beautiful picture! pic.twitter.com/AgKKWNspgD— Inside Mill Hill (@InsideMillHill) August 28, 2020
2. Proper football is back in the Borough of Barnet. We made our way up to the Brickfield Ground to watch an excellent local derby between Hadley FC and Edgware Town. A great day out. Support your local teams. Hadley won 5-0, but in reality football was the winner. Great to be back on the terraces
3. The White Lion in Edgware was a massive part of growing up and our community locally. Jingles night club at the back was a place many of us had our first kiss. So sad it's gone, but nice to see these pictures
Some more images from a party at The White Lion, Edgware, on the 22nd March 1958 with employees from the Edgware, Apex Corner and Burnt Oak branches of Sainsburys. @sainsburyarch— Mill Hill Hist Soc (@MHHistSoc) August 22, 2020
When do you think the last time a company party had a knobbly knees competition? pic.twitter.com/zuVP5WnmsA
4. This tweet brought back a few memories. My brother used to fix the pots and pans for the chippy when they broke (he's a welder). We'd always get a free bag of chips!
When I was 16 yrs old, I would go out every Saturday & search out local Arcades or places that hosted them. I frequented a Fish & Chip Shop in Burnt Oak, North London. It hosted 2 of the biggest games of the early 90’s. Streetfighter 2 & Wrestlefest. It was nuts! 😎 #GamersUnite pic.twitter.com/OjD9KH1MB1— 🎮Cheeky🕹Crissy 🎮 (@CheekyCrissy) August 25, 2020

7. This sounds like a nice initiative. When I was a kid, my mum used to grow fruit and veg in the back garden and send us kids out to all the local old ladies with the spare produce.
Got a glut of home grown produce? If you can, plse think of selling onto friends & neighbours & raising essential funds for us. Every bit of support really makes a difference to the lives of vulnerable children in #Barnet @love_barnet @barnetsociety @barnet_rebel @InsideMillHill pic.twitter.com/FJsJfr2pVF— LiveUnlimitedBarnet (@LiveUnltdBarnet) August 25, 2020
8. I always love to include a tweet featuring our local wildlife. Samuel is someone I can rely on to come up with the goods!
Patch Birding comes into its own at this time of year. Highlights from the Totteridge Valley today included a flyover Tree Pipit #89 for the patch year list, as well as, 3 Spotted Flycatcher, 2 Pied Flycatcher, 5 Yellow Wagtail and a bonus Garden Warbler. #londonbirds pic.twitter.com/YrNI5eSm4u— Samuel Levy (@FinchleyBirder) August 24, 2020
9. Julia asks a question many of us have wondered about.
I do hope you will be checking up on this and fining if necessary. pic.twitter.com/rixw5nh1je— Julia Hines (@JuliaHines) August 30, 2020
10. If you are a local musician, this is a an article worth reading
