In our weekly online focus, we'll bring a round up of the things that have caught our eye, news of forthcoming events and other news and local information. We are also always on the lookout for great pictures of our locality. We have a couple of great ones from the amazing Burnt Oak Pictures Facebook page. We are grateful to Keith Ward for posting these.
Transport - Past and Present
The first is an early 1960's picture of Mill Hill Broadway Station looking North. The station building is now where the car park is. Sadly I don't think the Mid 1960's makeover improved it.

In the same week @NatWest_Help closes in Mill Hill, we've also seen @AskHalifaxBank close. Seems that they don't want NW7 business pic.twitter.com/sTU6bbi18g— A Better Mill Hill (@ABetterMillHill) September 27, 2017

We are keen to see better signage, proper maintenance of road signs and consideration given to the ambience of the local streets. Have a look at these and tell us what you think.
Outside our MPs office in Bunns Lane. Ugly, unsightly and badly maintained road signs. Sort it out @BarnetCouncil pic.twitter.com/gJzZ1kBpvJ— A Better Mill Hill (@ABetterMillHill) September 28, 2017

⭐️Low fencing? Trellising adds height to boundaries, making it harder to climb over 😃 pic.twitter.com/Wqe0ljfTWt

Another issue to address is litter and mess. One example is that we don't want the council to leave the bins full in Mill Hill Park
