1. We'll start with a historical tweet. Did you know that our area was originally famed for its hay and manure!
2. Our borough has a very large Irish community, which I am proud to consider myself a member of. I am pretty sure that every last one of us loved this man, so I was chuffed to find this picture!Mentions many of the things that appear often in descriptions of the era: Irish doing the hay-making, temporary English workers from Bedfordshire, pubs like the Bald Faced Stag supplying the thirsty workers and the great circular trade of hay + manure between London and Middlesex— Mill Hill Hist Soc (@MHHistSoc) July 6, 2020
3. This was perhaps the biggest story of the week locally. The large area of open water on the A406.Very sad to wake up to the news of Jack Charlton. One of my most cherished memories is the excitement when he came to Cricklewood to attend a fundraiser for @LondonIrishARFC and @JODsportsmed and I got to meet him 💚 Jack was a pure gentleman and will be sorry missed #jackiesarmy pic.twitter.com/TKIwWgRNgJ— Cllr Elisa O'Donovan (@elisaodonovan) July 11, 2020
4. This is an appalling story. We owe our local police a debt of gratitude for the work they do keeping us safe.Work on the north Circular after the flood. A big job for the contractors pic.twitter.com/vIT23zO80q— Cricklewood Community Forum (@ccf_cricklewood) July 8, 2020
5. We enjoy a good bit of local art deco!A Metropolitan Police officer has this afternoon been stabbed in Hendon. The male officer has been taken to hospital for treatment - thankfully his condition is not life threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery from his injuries. https://t.co/TMLdciJSGb pic.twitter.com/0VyEAlS1gp— Met Police Federation (@MPFed) July 10, 2020
6. Being an old school punk, this is probably my favourite tweet this week. Brought back a few memoriesAdaptation renovation? #ArtDeco #embellishment #chevrons #geometry #Finchley @ArtDecoSocUK pic.twitter.com/4PTe1MGMSn— Jane Amelia Parker (@janeslondon) July 11, 2020
7. Great to see the return of training for our favourite Rugby clubThe Stranglers played at my local pub in New Barnet just after they’d made it big time. I had the best view sitting on the stage! pic.twitter.com/O31kY3SQjF— Told You So (@steviepattisond) July 12, 2020

9. This is a fantastic picture of my favourite statueDixons was once closely related with Edgware, its second store (the first was in Southend) , was at 185 Station Road, in 1940. It later set up its headquarters and warehousing in the town (although I'm not sure where.) (1/2) https://t.co/sS5Kosktch— NW London TimeMachine (@time_nw) July 8, 2020
10. This made us chuckleI thought about welding two photos together to get this statue holding a perfectly exposed moon at 3am, but the trickery seemed pointless...— Donald Lyven (@barnet_rebel) July 7, 2020
Instead I'm waiting decades for a totally eclipsed moon to be in that position to get the exposure correct on both... 🤭 pic.twitter.com/qVy9FA9RAD
