What's been going on in our neck of the woods? Here is our weekly summary, seen through the eyes of our local tweeters?
1. Lets start in Burnt Oak, where there is some news about one of the local landmarks.
New planning details for the old Savoy Cinema, Burnt Oak, are available to see, as this notice informs. pic.twitter.com/cJLk3rW2It— NW London TimeMachine (@time_nw) September 13, 2020
2. Nice historical tweet reminding us of Cricklewood airport!

3. Having just got back from a walk over the Totteridge Valley with some friends, I must say I am quite pleased I didn't see these scary looking monsters, impressive though they are!
Finally after years of trying I found not one but 5 Wasp Spiders in the Totteridge Valley making it a new species for the site. Also in the valley today 2 Grasshopper Warbler, a Curlew, Whinchat, Stonechat and 2 Teal at Darlands Lake. What a day! #londonbirds pic.twitter.com/q0SZAsgjEB— Samuel Levy (@FinchleyBirder) September 10, 2020
4. Congratulations to these guys. Well done
Well done to everyone in Team Barnet for cycling 55 miles from Colindale to Cambridge yesterday. They’ve raised £4.3k so far to unlock new opportunities to Barnet’s children in care and care leavers. Can you help them reach their £5k target? https://t.co/IQiugmJ8jY pic.twitter.com/sWFU9emCAW— LiveUnlimitedBarnet (@LiveUnltdBarnet) September 13, 2020
5. Nice Pic
6. The Borough has some amazing community gardeners!
A beautiful day for community gardening at Heybourne Park yesterday! We did some weeding, planted Echinops, wildflower seeds and created a wood chip garden path! #Heybournepark #GrahamePark #Colindale #Barnet #NW9 @BEST_COMGARDENS @SaracensHighSch pic.twitter.com/yiMoPnFydb— Friends of Heybourne Park (@Heybournepark) September 12, 2020
7. We have some rather impressive clocks on the Northern Line. This is one of my favourites!
Colindale #tube station's beautiful platform clock. Manufactured by the Self Winding Clock Co. in New York. Over 600 of these were installed on the #London #Underground network from 1905, many of which still survive today. pic.twitter.com/tCNhZBrwua— Lambeth Walker (@London_Nut) September 13, 2020
