It has come to our notice that some nonsensical claims are being published and disseminated against the Merz Barn project and the Littoral Trust by a certain individual and his cronies. The defamation has been going on since 1998, and we have more or less become used to it, but it is not fair to our many supporters to leave it hanging.
Mostly the lengthy screeds which some of you will have received consist of academic quibbles and half truths. The crazy financial claims however are more damaging, and we are therefore taking the step of publishing the true figures of public funding received by the Littoral trust for the Merz Barn project over the past 10 years.
P.S.: we forgot to include in this schedule the £2,000 contributed by South Lakes District Council to the costs of preparing and publishing the 2015 Consultancy Report on the Future of the Merz Barn.
