4. Ever wondered why your Thameslink Train was terminated at Mill Hill for a problem south of the river, thanks to Paul Barber for the explanation
Nowhere to stable the train once it gets through London— Paul Barber (@Oldtraindriver) October 24, 2020
So terminating at mill hill or kentish town allows the train to stable in the sidings at cricklewood https://t.co/66ajKEC9xA

7. Samuel is a friend of the this blog and we support his campaign
In a Climate and ecological emergency how can we continue to build on Green Belted Land? My patch the Totteridge Valley is facing this threat. This isn't just a local wildlife issue, but residents face losing an area which helped so many during lockdown!https://t.co/3mfu08tuoj— Samuel Levy (@FinchleyBirder) October 24, 2020
8. A magnificent gesture of local community leadership
9. This is a fascinating Tweet. One of the few world class scientific institutes still in the Borough of Barnet following the departure of the NIMR
The virus research laboratory still exists in Colindale, North West London, albeit in a more modern structure. Curiously, it is very close to where the British Newspaper Library was. My scientifically accurate red arrow here indicates where the BNL - which we used greatly - was. https://t.co/XYvPxzQFvK pic.twitter.com/nJRzLRwWa2— Royal Free 1955 (@RFH1955) October 21, 2020
10. We do hope everyone is supporting the work of our local foodbank. Here is one way you can contribute
Thats all folks!
We are supporting @MarcusRashford and his campaign for free meals for hungry kids in school holidays. In support of this we are holding a collection for our local foodbank in Colindale @ColindaleFB this weekend. Please drop off non perishable groceries. https://t.co/ur4dYcjCeb— #MillHillMusicComplex (@MillHillMusicCo) October 23, 2020
