So how's your week been? Perhaps the highlight for me was taking a trip down to Paddington via Thameslink and Crossrail on Friday night. I do like Paddington basin and you can get there in half an hour from Mill Hill, if you time it right. It seems odd that you can get to Paddington more quickly by public transport from Mill Hill than you can get to Finchley or Barnet in rush hour. I felt like a tourist snapping away. I like it, it is very impressive.
Anyway, that's enough of me. Let see what the tweeters of Barnet have been up to. Some great events coming up!
1. Lets start with a date for your diary. This looks wonderful

2. This is a nice walk. I've done it, but not in one hit. Maybe one to do with the doggies!
#LoveLondonWalkLondon walkd frm Elstree&Borehamwood-just outside London in what we used to call the Home Counties-to Burnt Oak 2day-just over 6 miles encountering the A1 & M1 & finally Deans Brook-in all honesty not the best the @LDNLoop has to offer but the weather was gorgeous pic.twitter.com/SOXXz5UcJh— walking class hero 💙 (@walkngclasshero) May 27, 2022
3. We love a good community garden!

4. Seems like I'm not the only local resident to find an excuse to use the Lizzy Line. Great pics as ever from our local wildlife correspondent!
Back in London briefly after finishing Uni and needed an excuse to ride the new Elizabeth Line. So this afternoon I decided to spend an hour watching and listening to the Iberian Chiffchaff in Regents park. A top notch bird#lowcarbonbirding #londonbirds pic.twitter.com/jnf2RjGPM3— Samuel Levy (@FinchleyBirder) May 25, 2022
5. A nice reminder about one of our more interesting local cemeteries
Check out Islington&St Pancras cemetery in Finchley, largest in terms of burials in the UK- management have a policy of ‘informed indifference’ to boost ecology value, it’s resulted in kites, newts, muntjac, hedgehogs in abundance despite being surrounded by urban sprawl. pic.twitter.com/M3HaGSZ2WJ— Tejas (@TejDVyas) May 29, 2022
