The Tweets of The Week in the London Borough of Barnet - 24/5/2020

So what has been happing in our little corner of paradise?  This is the story through the eyes of local army of tweeters.

1. Lets start in Burnt Oak, where whatever will replace the Bald Faced Stag is taking shape. Our local pub champion Mark Amies is keeping a beady eye on it

2. This tweet intrigues me. Where in Edgware is this and what is the story?

3. No Trains on Thameslink this weekend into London. Our trusty unofficial rail correspondent, the rather amazing Mr Robin Morel explains why

4. I love this tweet. It makes Hendon look so exotic. I must find this spot and take a little walk!

5. Great to see work progressing at the home of Edgware Town and Hendon FC. I know that this is technically Brent but both clubs have their sprititual base in the Borough of Barnet

6. This has to be the historical tweet of the week, a Halifax Bomber being built in Cricklewood. We must not forget our amazing local industrial history and we really should preserve what is left of it.

7. Whilst we are in Cricklewood, there was some other major news. DB rail opened a major railfreight hub this week, which will bring aggregates in for the many major local building projects.

8. And one of these projects will be the new station at Brent Cross, which received planning permission this week

9. I will definitely check this out when I next get the opportunity

10. There are snakes in the grass in Mill Hill, watch your step!

That's all folks.
