I daresay the London Borough of Barnet has not been at the top of most people's news agenda's this week, what with lockdowns and Presidential Elections. But that does not mean we've not had some great tweeting! Here is our pick.

7. Looking for some interesting local history to check out during lockdown? (*** Ed Note *** We have been contacted by several readers who have pointed out that the article is riddled with errors. Handley Page were active in Cricklewood until 1970 and Cricklewood studios is now a Matalan. We should really expect better from a site put together for Barnet Council)
