The tweets of the week in the London Borough of Barnet - 5th Decemeber 2021

 So how has your week been? I've had a pretty decent week. Met up with a good mate who I haven't seen for a while at one of London's more interesting pubs, The Edgar Wallace. It's got some amazing memorabilia from the 60's and 70's. If youa re around Fleet Street and you like a good pub, check it out. 

But that's' enough of my week, what have our tweeters been up to? Some interesting stuff in there, I hope you will concur.

1.On the subject of good pubs, we are sadly once again back in Edgware at the Railway Hotel. Nothing would make me happier than to never see another tweet about this appalling story, but so long as Mark Amies keeps tweeting it, I will support him. If by chance, you are a benevolent millionaire, who wants to make a great business and do something for the community in Edgware, please get in touch. I have some great plans to transform this into the beating heart of Edgware that it really deserves to be. Sadly the pandemic has used most of my spare cash! What could be better than a pub/microbrewery/GrassroostMusic Venue/Community Space five minutes walk from a tube station on a High Street earmarked for regeneration? You can't take your cash with you

2. I rather like Paul Dykes tweets, charting the lost Police boxes of London.

3. We featured the Good Neighbour scheme in our advent Calendar series. Here is some of the good work they do

4. Check out this film about Edgware. It is well worth a view

5. Robert Elms featured Stoll Studios in Cricklewood on his show on Friday. It is well worth a listen again on BBC Sounds. There was a fascinating call from Sir Sidney Samuelson, who is 96 and still sharp as a button talking about the history of the studios.

6. This tweet ticks many boxes. Great stuff

7. YEsterday was Small Business Saturday. We think we should support small businesses every Saturday. A nice tweet from N2 United

8. Nice tweet from John Keough. Good to see the Barnet Xmas Fayre in full swing

9. A free pot noodle for anyone who can identify the location!

10. We have some fine local musicians in our neck of the woods

That's all folks
