The Tweets of the year in the London Borough of Barnet - 2019

Continuing our annual tradition of revisiting the year, we pick a tweet from each month to compile our selection. There have been some amazing tweets this year. In keeping with the festive mood, I've picked a fairly upbeat selection, which I hope you enjoy.

January - This week, foxes in gardens have been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Back in January Angela posted this lovely shot from her back garden in Mill Hill East. I can't understand why people anyone would be anything other than revolted by acts of brutality towards animals.

March - Now if this tweet doesn't make you smile, I don't know what will. I must confess these officers are far braver than me, I won't go near swans!

April - As spring took hold, Cricklewood looked glorious!

Not been to Cricklewood in a long time and these sheep outside @BandQ made me giggle. They're so awesome!

May - In May we had a solemn pause in memory of those who lost their lives in the holocaust. By remembering, we seek to stop that path being taken again.

Tonight we lit this in memory for Alex Weijel of Enschede aged 2 who perished in Aushwitz in 1942, one of the many people who perished during the holocaust. @YellowCandleUK

Remembering all who were murdered, jews, gay people, romanys and many more.

December - And lastly, in December, Rob Morel posted this fascinating picture of the gradient of the Midland Mainline, that shows it passing through Cricklewood, Hendon and Mill Hill. I hadn't realised that St Albans was so much higher than Mill Hill until I saw this
