The year of living uninterestingly progresses. Next week, Boris is allowing us to catch the virus in many more ways than we have been so far, so I expect a torrent of hugely exciting tweets as we all loose our collective marbles with the excitement. But this week.....
1. Our friend Samuel Levy AkA @FinchleyBirder has been quiet of late, however we thoroughly agree with his selection of amazing nature walks from earlier in the week
Finchley Way Open Space— Samuel Levy (@FinchleyBirder) July 12, 2021
The whole Dollis Valley Green Walk (including Upper reaches)
Cherry Tree Wood
To name a few
Agree with Keirs mention of Coldfall Wood a really nice nature reserve in ancient woodland.
2. A great performance from our local team in an early pre season friendly
3. Sad news from Finchley and Wingate FC
R.I.P Spencer McCall— Non League Bible (@NLBIBLE4) July 16, 2021
Spencer has sadly passed away at the age of 26
Back in 2018 he suffered what was thought to be a broken leg but later got diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer
His former clubs include, Bishop’s Stortford, Hemel Hempstead and Wingate & Finchley pic.twitter.com/z7dtTAdCPG
4. Nice Post from the Mill Hill historical society
Mill Hill Post Office at 27 The Broadway seen in 1938 and today plus a photo of a lady posting a letter there in 1962.— Mill Hill Hist Soc (@MHHistSoc) July 17, 2021
To the side you can see Walton, Hassel & Port grocers which continued until at least the '60s

6. Nice pic of world champion racing driver Graham Hill in Mill Hill. Looks like my Dad in the background having a crafty oily. I know the pair of them were friends
Mill Hill resident & racing legend, Graham Hill, stood next to the Ford Anglia that he drove in the 1960 Monte Carlo Rally. With him, I assume, is his wife, & son Damon. The scene is in front of the Blue Star Observatory service station at Mill Hill.— NW London TimeMachine (@time_nw) July 13, 2021

7. Lovely Tweets
#Cricklewood and beyond waive good bye and hope to see you soon. We have no words to thank you for what you and @clitterhouse volunteers have achieved at the Farm Garden: London’s best kept secret #CommunityGarden, a much loved and valued local gem 🌟 pic.twitter.com/ZwNJYEVLo5— Golders Green Estate (@ggera_nw) July 16, 2021
8. Well done to Emily, always good to find a use for such things when no longer needed. Sorry or your loss, Rolo looked lovely
Just dropped 3 unopened bags of @tailsdogfood hypoallergenic older dog food at the @PDSA_HQ Hendon Pet Hospital to help feed some poorly puppers. Rolo on the occasion would be happy that I’m sharing his food. Left them with all the ingredients and nutrients printed off too. pic.twitter.com/VyLTZaaKMt— RMGirl - Emily (@RMGirlUK) July 18, 2021
