Here is my pick of the best tweets from around the Borough of Barnet in the last week.
1. Now if there'd been a picture, this could have been the Tweet of the Year
In Burnt Oak we now officially live in the Twilight Zone. Just went past the Salavge Shop and I can only guess it's the owner of the shop selling bog rolls off a wall paper table dressed in a Hazmat Suit.— James Towell (@JtTowell) May 10, 2020
2. Always up for a bit of quality street art. Of which this is a great example

3. Some great work from the students at my old school
Box office beware. Here are some of the play and film posters from our students who were asked to design a new play or musical based on the global pandemic #wellbeingWednesday pic.twitter.com/RzLRY9SShc— Finchley Catholic (@fchslondon) May 6, 2020
4. I sort of like the concept that the train driver rocks up at Cricklewood and pics the one he likes the look of most!
A choice of HSTs at cricklewood. Like a kid in a candyshop I choose the middle one please. 43060 and 43089 was a fantastic choice 😁 lovely drive in the sunshine to Sheffield today. #HSTthursday pic.twitter.com/br2r27nAZr— Moleman (@mole259) May 7, 2020
