REAL NEWS FOR THE AREA | No ads and no politics

This site keeps on growing and its Social Media now has a massive reach in NW7 and beyond.  Rather than have just one big group we spread ourselves around the Social Media scene as an early adopter and have large accounts on all platforms.  This means we can harvest news from our followers before anyone else and verify news quickly.  We receive news via the Mill Hill News Portal which is info@millhillbroadway.co.uk   This portal receives press releases from all Mill Hill organisations and businesses.  The sites that subscribe to the Portal can use the exclusive news for their publications and the Portal also sends news to major news harvesting hubs.  It provides photos and stories for the National, local and Online news providers.  So send your news to info@millhillbroadway.co.uk if you have great news or events to publicise.

This year we have added nearly 1,000 followers to our Social Media networks already and also can call on two other networks with over 10K each to promote special events and stories.

We have NO ADVERTS - we do not believe that this news site should ever be taking money from you like the money grabbing political sites who pretend to be for Community.  If you see adverts on a blog then that is making money for the individual/group who runs it.   This is totally unacceptable in news purporting to be for the community.  Anyone who does that is not to be trusted at all because it leads to clickbait stories which have no truth in them or exaggerations of situations into do or die campaigns - in order to make you read but in reality making money for them. We are proud of our independence and cant be influenced by big business or local or national political activists via financial pressure.

So you can trust this site.  We give unbiased views and  though we don't do politics we may occasionally mention policies that are undermining or enhancing our community from our Council or Government - to give credit where its due and warn if something is going to adversely effect our area.

We have never attacked any other parts of our community either online or in any other way.  We run this for fun and not for money.   Like other groups we have been subject to abuse by a small nasty group of activists who want to destroy everything in Mill Hill which is good.  Well they don't bother us because unlike them we do this quietly and none of us take any credit or put our names on here because it is ALL about the area - not the individual.   We will continue to grow and make Mill Hill a better place.

We have been around since 2010.  The longest running online news and events service for NW7 on the internet.  We move into our 11th year stronger than ever and more determined than ever to help every business - chartity - organisation and individual in Mill Hill to make their lives better and more enjoyable/worthwhile.

Believe in NW7 !


SARACENS 36 SALE SHARKS 22 | Match Report

Saracens returned to Gallagher Premiership action at Allianz Park with a four try win over Sale Sharks, raising £4,000 for Michael Fatialofa’s recovery fund through the club’s try donation pledge in the process.

A close first half saw Saracens earn a narrow lead while three second half scores ensured the home side would claim a 36-22 victory, despite two late tries from the Sharks.

In stormy conditions an early try courtesy of returning Welsh international Rhys Carre gave Saracens an important early advantage at Allianz Park this afternoon.

Barely a minute gone on the clock and Saracens made an early impact on the game, Carre latching on to a loose line out throw to claim the five points. Vunipola’s conversion fell short of the target however, caught in a strong gust.

With high winds and heavy rain battering north London large period of the game were dominated by both sides’ kicking game as both host and visitors looked to force errors under the high ball. Despite the gusty conditions Saracens were able to extend their first half lead through the boots of Vunipola and Lozowski, the pair slotting a total of three penalties over the course of the half.

The boot of Rob du Preez opened the scoring for Sale Sharks before a breakaway try finished by winger Byron McGuigan right on the stroke of half time sliced Saracens lead to 14-10 at the break.
Saracens started the second forty in the same vein as they had the first, extending their lead with an early try as Academy products Tom Whiteley and Rotimi Segun combined for the score. The conversion plus a penalty kick from the boot of Manu Vunipola edged Saracens further in front of the visitors as the Men in Black mounted a 24-10 lead.

Saracens confirmed their control over the game just a few minutes later when Nick Isiekwe charged down a clearance kick metres from the line and made no mistake as he collected the ball to score.
With breathing space between Saracens and the visitors, the home side continued to build the pressure on the Sharks as the forward pack enjoyed a profitable period of play, building sustained attacking pressure in search of a score. The pressure told in the 67th minute when replacement prop Richard Barrington was driven over the line to the delight of the Allianz Park crowd. With the posts swaying heavily in the wind Vunipola placed another assured conversion to give Saracens a 36-10 lead going in to the final ten minutes.

The Sharks forced their hosts to work for the win however, adding two late tries to their tally courtesy of Rob and Dan du Preez to keep the game alive. Ultimately however it was too little too late as Saracens held on to their advantage to close out a 36-22 win.
