Don't forget to follow any tweeters who tickle your fancy!
What has been going on?
1. Mill Hill Broadway was 150 years old this week. Thanks to the Mill Hill Historical Society for the historcial tweet of the week!

2. John Keough recorded the launch of the #Barnet Wall and the Kick Out Capita campaign in Hendon for posterity!
3. Jonny Smash, clearly impressed by the efforts of those in Childs Hill, would like to see a little bit more of his local councillors!
4. On a rather more worrying note, we had a shooting locally

5. This blog supports the Colindale Foodbank. We hope you do as well. Summer Holidays are a time of need, as children don't get a school lunch
Calling for help! We desperately need jam/sugar/tinned fruit/shower gel. Anyone can help? @GPOneStopShop @MillHillRFC @jesushouseuk @Barneteye @MillHillBwy @mhe @ABetterMillHill #jam #sugar #tinnedfruit #showergel— Colindale Foodbank (@ColindaleFB) July 13, 2018

7. I also picked my first blackberry of the season on this morning's Darlands walk. Very tasty it was too!
Also yesterday, 1st blackberries ripening; enjoyed many, warmed by sunshine; a bit tart but sweetness will follow, providing we get more rain. Teasels are flowering too, & lots of butterflies! @stephenshouse @FinchleyHort @FinchleySociety @FinchleyGreat @2E0MCA @WildLondon @iGiGL pic.twitter.com/HHlXiJES9Z— Long Lane Pasture (@LLPasture) July 8, 2018
8.I gotta say I rather like the look of this tweet. Nothing like sitting on a comfy sofa in the sun!
Very productive day at the farm today. Had a lovely water colour workshop, a big clean up at the cafe and fitted a water butt and an irrigation system on the farm garden and got our bean can pots on the wall! pic.twitter.com/XbA6mGxoz7— Clitterhouse Farm, Cricklewood (@clitterhouse) July 14, 2018
9. However this does not mean that dumping your old sofa in the park is ok!
Dumped in Flower Lane, bastard fly tippers - dumped this morning and no one saw a thing ? @ruby_robot @mhlitterpickers @ColindaleLitter @Barneteye @BarnetParks @BarnetCouncil pic.twitter.com/jIV9DQzqCU— MarkyWar (@Marky_War) July 14, 2018
10. Calvin Casino rather likes one of the False Dots catchy little ditties
https://t.co/OAoJYmt4Po Everybody, check this massive awesome song from the False Dots. "They've cleared out of your desk". This is the anthem of #KickOutCapita— Calvin Casino (@calvincasino) July 13, 2018
Oh and a final small deviation. Two weeks ago, Steve Hedley from the RMT Union addressed Barnet residents at the Barnet Alliance AGM. Steve explained ways in which Rail privatisation has delivered expensive tickets and poor services for rail passengers. Trades Unionists who see life at the coalface have an interesting and informative perspective.
Imagine my horror and disgust to see what fascists did to Steve in London yesterday.

"So, it's okay to have free speech for Tommy, but if you oppose Tommy you get attacked with a glass and chair?" Watch @RMTunion deputy general secretary Steve Hedley recount being attacked by people who attended the pro-Tommy Robinson demo this afternoon. pic.twitter.com/hhmEvdiso9— HOPE not hate (@hopenothate) July 14, 2018
That's all folks!
