Default The Barnet Bugle

Just took the dog out (again) and as I got to the end of my road I happened to glance to my right and saw that the postbox, which would have been put in place when the houses were built in 1935, had moved about 30 metres from its original position, seemingly overnight. It gave me quite a shock.
Stay tuned for more earth-shattering snippets from your Barnet correspondent.
