As you might imagine, it's been rather busy for me over the last few weeks. I didn't produce this feature last week due to the boycott of social media against online abuse. It was quite handy as it let me focus on other things. But we are back and there are some rather nice tweets.
1. Lets start by re-affirming our faith in humanity
In Golders Green, North London, some passersby saw a man preparing to jump from a bridge and held him for two hours until emergency crews arrived on the scene. What tenacious kindness!— Michael Frost (@michaelfrost6) May 4, 2021

2. What can I say? This is excellent!
This is a map with the proposed 6 new walking routes by @RamblersGB! It includes the ‘Forgotten Rivers Walk’, with ‘The River Fleet route’ connecting Hampstead Heath with the #ThamesPath & the #SilkStream trail linking the Heath to the London LOOP at High Barnet! https://t.co/0aYtM9te3l pic.twitter.com/ejbMK6uFY4— Friends of the Silk Stream (@silkstreamers) May 5, 2021
3. Yep, this made me smile
4. Just occasionally I find something like this. Excellent
5. A reminder
#WestFinchley residents with more people going back to work. Please be vigilant when leaving your house empty. Make sure all doors and windows are secured. Set alarms if they are fitted. pic.twitter.com/V49kxSnwQZ— West Finchley Police (@MPSWestFinchley) May 8, 2021
6. Nice to see our favourite Vicar (well one of them!) with his name up in lights (well sort of)
The name is on the board so it must be true…..love the community of @StPetersNW2 & @StJohnsWH in this small corner of @dioceseoflondon - playing our part so that EVERY Londoner may encounter the love of God in Christ Jesus pic.twitter.com/x6PHJuYKKO— rhutch (@RevRhutch) May 2, 2021

8. Nice bit of local history
Another bit of Edgware's that disappeared not that long ago.....Rex Judd Motorcycles, who were Brooklands House, 415 Burnt Oak Broadway, just along from two other departed fixtures, The White Lion pub, and its football ground, home to Edgware FC. pic.twitter.com/9rTK3RdgYQ— NW London TimeMachine (@time_nw) May 3, 2021

10. We started in Golders Green, so we'll finish in Golders Green. I rather like this tweet!
That's all folks
