So we are hurtling towards 2021 at a rate of knots. This week is Chanukah, in a couple of weeks Xmas and then a week later we will be there. I'm not sure too many will miss this year. But this week has seen a few signs that the human spirit of our community will prevail! Here's our pick of the best tweets. Some great stuff out there.
1. Great community spirit here.
East Finchley peeps, we need your help... well, your cash actually https://t.co/YLvmcCW1it— East Finchley (@EastFinchleyN2) December 9, 2020
2. Mill Hill saw a rather snazzy looking train yesterday, reviving memories of a long lost service that used to run in the early 1960's
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Midland Pullman, an Intercity 125 train has been redecorated in the same bold blue livery and came through Mill Hill Broadway Station this morning at 09.21 #MidlandPullman #millhill pic.twitter.com/4YDu1BTD8e— Inside Mill Hill (@InsideMillHill) December 12, 2020
3. Some great stuff at our fave independent cinema!

6. The Pogues are always on the radio at this time of the year, but did you know that front man Shane MacGowan helped build Brent Cross?
Do you mean this photo Ian? If so its a @MuseumofLondon image taken by Henry Grant, in 1975. I used to think the chap with the hat looked a bit like Shane McGowan. Are we pretty sure it is? https://t.co/yXOMhiiqKd— NW London TimeMachine (@time_nw) December 11, 2020
What do you reckon @Barneteye pic.twitter.com/qw2bncP00U
7. This is my snigger of the week. Classic North London humour at its best

8. But tell me honestly, did you know the car park at Brent Cross was so glamourous?
9. This definitely the tweet of the week "things I didn't know that I didn't know" item,m this week. Thanks to Ian McGreevy for a truly fascinating insight into our past
It is at the junction of the A41 and a public Bridleway.— Ian McGreevy (@ian_mcgreevy) December 2, 2020
However, the Bridleway is impossible to ride on so these steps are available to equestrians to help mount or dismount. There is a matching steps beyond, where the Bridleway becomes suitable for riding.
10. If you like a bit of proper Brit Funk, this will be right up your street!
