So we made it through to another year. What does the new year hold. We had a pleasant week, we went up to Shropshire for a few days to see New Year in. It was most pleasant. The highlight was meeting up with the False Dots first gigging drummer, the amazing Mr Dav Davies after 40 years. A great bloke and a magnificent drummer.
How was your celebration? Without further ado, here is our selection from the Tweeters of Barnet
1. We love to find fine new local accounts. This looks like a good one!
2. How could I possibly not include this. BTW the False Dots have a brand new song called the Burnt Oak Boogie, that names such places as The Bald Face Stag, the Beta Cafe, the Fishmonger near Barnfield Road, the Market and the Annunciation club. Expect the album in the late spring
Started reading first of my Xmas presents this morning - London Made Us by @robert_elms having gone to school in Burnt Oak in late 70s can relate to stories about Mr Miglio and Beta Cafe, Bald Face Stag, 52 bus, Wimpey bar on Edgware Rd, and "Burnt Oak Boys" outside the station. pic.twitter.com/MfyOZujZZN— Eddie McCreadie 1977 ⭐⭐ (@eddiemacbawa) December 26, 2021
3. Funny to think these were probably my Gandparents friends when they lived down on the Watling!
The photograph was taken on December 30th, 1934, at the Methodist Church Hall on the Watling Estate, Burnt Oak.https://t.co/uNsgXJHf5H— BarnetPost (@BarnetPost) December 24, 2021
4. Happy New Year to all at the Borough's finest footie team. Ending the season barbecuing some silly Salami's!
5. Happy New Year to everyone who had to work to keep the rest of us moving, healthy and safe!

7. This was a wonderful discussion, earlier in the week
8. Always worth a look around
Happy New Year! This afternoon @sheila_rn and I walked the quiet and rather muddy Darlands Nature Reserve (it’s about the size of Hampstead Heath and much wilder. It’s located between Mill Hill & N Finchley). Bring your wellies! pic.twitter.com/go62P4P43k— David Fathers (@TheTilbury) January 1, 2022
9. Nice footage of the old Sacred Heart Church in Mill Hill

10. And once more, Happy New Ear to all!
