Another week, another set of restrictions. It's a good time to be alive!
But what have the esteemed tweeters of the London Borough of Barnet made of it all? What has been happening in our little corner of heaven?

3. We are big fans of former Mill Hill resident Patrick McGooghan and this is a lovely tweet
The actor Patrick McGoohan, best know for his roles in 'Danger Man' & 'The Prisoner', lived in Mill Hill in the 1960's. He would often cycle from home to the MGM studios in Borehamwood, before starting work. This 1966 TV Week features sets a scene of that time. pic.twitter.com/MBQOoxzc8d— North West Se7en (@NWSe7en) October 18, 2020
4. Colindale used to be the home of the National Newspaper library. Sadly this is now just a distant memory
It actually reminded me that one of the many jobs I’ve done ever is reading 18c Caribbean newspapers at Colindale for six weeks looking for runaway slave ads, for an academic in Newcastle!— Hot Emma (@anicegreenleaf) October 9, 2020
