Mr Mustard has just noticed a Letter to the Editor in the Finchley Arrow. Please pop back once you have read the letter on the following website:
The letter is from the Chairman of the Finchley Carnival, a Mr William "Bill" Lethorn, who has a Civic Award which you can read about on the Barnet Council website ( of all places ! )
and about whom the then Mayor said:
Surely that cannot be the same Bill Lethorn about whom Cllr Coleman has recently said "We saved it ( the carnival) from a bunch of amateurs ( Bill et al ) who failed to deliver."
Evidently they had a NotVeryMerryGoRound at the Finchley Carnival.
Anyway the point Mr Mustard actually wanted to make was that his figure of £3,500 for funfair income, in his earlier blog, is evidently way off the mark as Mr Leghorn suggests it should be nearer to £10,000 which would buy a lot more fireworks or a lollipop patrol or books or carers or....
Mr Mustard is trying to get the exact figures for you and will post them as soon as they are available.
Hopefully his mole at the Town Hall will be able to ferret them out quite soon.
And when nominations are due at the end of the year for Civic Awards for 2012 Mr Mustard will be nominating Mrs Angry, a shoe-in surely after being praised by Mr Eric Pickles MP ?
