Death of Barnet's veteran trade unionist

Fred Jarvis, Barnet's most celebrated trade union leader - and a New Barnet resident for well over 60 years - has died at the age of 95. He lived in Hadley Road and his wife, the late Anne Jarvis, was a teacher in Finchley for 30 years and spent eight years chairing Barnet Council's education committee. 
Customers were welcomed back in Barnet High Street and the Spires shopping centre on the first day of the easing of lockdown restrictions on shopping. Most of the leading chains were open for business.
