A funny old week really. I won't mention the football. I will remember yesterday as it was the day West London Wildlife, a book I contributed a chapter to about Darlands Nature Reserve was launched. A few readers have asked if I will be publishing my chapter here. The answer is no. Buy the book and support the Independent Publishing sector. I did a lot of research for my contribution and there are some stunning pictures and the otehr featured wildlife areas are well worth a read of.
Thanks to everyone who joined us today for the launch of West London Wildlife! We were thrilled to be joined by an amazing panel, from nature writers to conservationists🌳🌊🦇 @WWTLondon @FRPTweets @Ethnobotanica @Barneteye @FriendsRivCrane @ThamesEstPart @_BCT_ @WWTLondon pic.twitter.com/7UFBONQTKe— Aurora Metro Books (@AuroraMetro) December 10, 2022

Anyway, that's quite enough of my week. How was yours? The Tweeters of Barnet have been active. Here is my pick
1. Sadly the Borough's finest football team's last game of the year was postponed due to a frozen pitch. A shame as it would have been a big day for the club with fans watching England after
⛔️ Game off! We’ve tried our best but player safety comes first so todays game with @AylesburyUtdFC has failed the pitch inspection and is now off, enjoy your day 🏴 pic.twitter.com/uFlcF1bQZB— Hadley FC (@hadleyfc) December 10, 2022
2. For us boys of a certain age, raised in Mill Hill, this place was legendary. It looks like my elder brothers in their St Vincents uniforms in the picture
...look! Its the Model Shop!! I remember this place in the 1980s. Wonderful place and very sadly missed by those who enjoyed making plastic kits. pic.twitter.com/YnB7ENbYnq— NW London TimeMachine (@time_nw) April 28, 2020
3. I must get around to doing the Observatory tour!
It was the UCL Observatory in Mill Hill. Brilliant tour, with a clear night so got to see Jupiter and her moons! pic.twitter.com/3xjS84NVaY— Rupinder Hardy (@rupinder_hardy) December 9, 2022
4. Fancy a bit of folk music for Xmas tomorrow night?

5. We can always rely on Donald for a great picture
Good to see The Archer take his place again at the top of the East Finchley Christmas tree! @TheArcherN2 @eftownteam @EastFinchFest @loveEFLibrary @EastFinchleyN2 pic.twitter.com/c3kxKcRUpA— Donald Lyven (@barnet_rebel) December 3, 2022
6. This is excellent, a new account to me and some top tweeting!
Evelyn Waugh was a customer at the Cave of Harmony. In 1924 he persuaded Elsa Lanchester to appear in an amateur production called The Scarlet Woman, filmed largely in his parents’ garden in Golders Green. It was her first film. https://t.co/OJFtAghUh4 pic.twitter.com/XYMB9YSDsL— ID (@chuffnell) December 11, 2022
