Another busy week. I was up in York taking a break for a couple of days, went to see the rather fantabulous Stone Foundation on Friday night, watched the mighty Hadley FC win 4-0 and had a rather good Lamb Vindaloo from the Mill Hill Tandoori last night. How was your week? This is my pick of what the local tweeters have been up to.
1. My friends at Liberty UK released this video featuring yours truly this week. I am rather proud to have been asked to contribute. I don't normally choose tweets featuring myself, but this is rather important, so please have a look and if you agree with me, retweet this and tell your MP.

When the council tried to close Friern Barnet Library, the community came together to save it.
Gov's #PolicingBill would have shut their protest down.

2. Dramatic pictures from Colindale. One has to wonder why people don't drive in a careful manner
Few days since this, but honestly, this junction is the absolute worst. The lights are phased so that there’s no timing at all for pedestrians to cross. The stop line is placed so that there’s not enough space for buses turning into Colindale Ave. Burn it all and start again. https://t.co/EfmK9atSFc— Jamie Gladden / 3songsnoflash (@3songsnoflash) November 27, 2021
3. A rather good piece from ur friend Mark Amies on the murals of Cricklewood station

5. Did any of you see this rather magnificent machine passing through Cricklewood, Hendon or Mill Hill yesterday morning. It woke me up, but sadly the curtains were drawn!

6. To my mind, this is what a bookshop should look like. I must take a trip up to check it out

7. Unlike some local cemetaries, Golders Green is always impeccable and if you want to keep it like that, here's your chance!
The London Cremation Company PLC is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic part-time Gardener (24-hours), to join the Gardens team at Golders Green Crematorium in London. This role is offering a salary of up to £25,000.https://t.co/r9P2uUT5me#horticulturejobs #gardeningjobs pic.twitter.com/Z6EH48TP8d— ECG (@ecgrecruitment) November 26, 2021
8. Perhaps we should take a moment to reflect on what happens when refugees are demonised

9. I saw a rather good performance from our local team, Hadley FC yesterday. This was my pick of the goals.

10. Did you see Zoe Rahman at Frith Manor School last Sunday? If you didn't you missed a treat
That's all folks
