It's Easter Sunday and the Sun is shining. You can meet five of your friends in your garden if you have one or in the park if you don't. Things are getting better. We've only seen one person pass away from Covid in the Borough of Barnet in the last week, which although very sad is a lot better than the numbers we were seeing previously. Here is our weekly snapshot of how are local Tweeters are seeing the situation
1. Ever wondered what sort of a traffic jam the container ship stranded this week in the Suez would cause on the Watling, Burnt Oak. I am forever endebted to Pete Scully for this tweet. The most magnificently bonkers tweet for a long time
Ok this is more in context for me. The same length as from the Library to the top of the Watling in Burnt Oak. Traffic is bad enough up the Watling without that boat getting stuck there; prob wouldn't make much difference. I bet a few of them containers would get nicked an'all. pic.twitter.com/L5j4X68YA2— Pete Scully (@petescully) March 29, 2021

We came, we saw, we cleaned.@oreofreak cleaning phone box, @CrickleBen taking on some tags on the Cricklewood sign.
The Rembrandt Sisters @MarieHa72890130 and @anne_clarke paint over graffiti by the health centre!
5. A big shout out to the Friends of The Silk Stream for their efforts cleaning up this valuable wildlife resource. Please be considerate and don't treat it as a tip
Part of the problem is also people throwing and dumping all kinds of litter from and next to bridges. These are a few recent pics taken along the Silkstream at bridges at Colindale Ave. ,Colindeep lane, the bridge before Watling Ave. & the Silk Bridge(A5) We removed some of it! https://t.co/o3oYX3YG9y pic.twitter.com/bpM7mJzIh7— Friends of the Silk Stream (@silkstreamers) April 2, 2021
6. Some genuinely happy news. Congratulations to Agnes
This fills my heart with joy. Agnes is an amazing lady who serves others at great cost to herself - her faith sustains her as she pours herself out for others. So grateful to know her https://t.co/trM3SsOYWh— rhutch (@RevRhutch) April 2, 2021
7. Congratulations to our local Police, reuniting a lost doggy with a very happy owner!
Meet Coco! #ERPT Officers found Coco last night. Suspecting the #dog to be stolen they took it to @Medivet_UK to ensure it was healthy and to find its people. Once Coco was checked over, it was taken to it owner, who was extremely happy to have him back! #ERPT E #RST #HappyDog pic.twitter.com/lFDJJoEifD— Hale Police (@MPSHaleSX) April 2, 2021
