Christmas Social

All FHS members and families are invited to the Christmas Social on Sunday 15th December 11am until 1pm. It will be held in The Piggery Tea Hut Gordon Road Allotments. Mince Pies, Mulled Wine and Soft Drinks.


Finchley Way Open Space is owned and managed by Barnet Council. It is open to the public. But while the Council mow the grass in part of the area, the other part is too overgrown to access. It needs more care and attention than the Council provide, so there are plans to set-up a Friends Group to bring the area back into use for the enjoyment of residents. For more information Email:
