IN his col­umn in last week’s pa­per, our colum­nist Garry The Hat wrote that Barn­aby Fes­ti­val re­ceived a £2,000 grant from the Arts Coun­cil to­wards a com­mu­nity opera.

He also stated that grant in­come has not in­creased since the fes­ti­val’s in­cep­tion in 2010.

We are happy to point out that in 2010 the fes­ti­val won £10,000 from Big Lot­tery to­wards the com­mu­nity opera, £5,000 from Arts Coun­cil Eng­land to­wards the Art Trail, and that the in­come from pub­licly funded sources has in­creased over the five years that the fes­ti­val has been run­ning.

WE would also like to point out that in our re­port of the in­quest into the death of Lee Gosling in last week’s Ex­press, Lee’s brother Matthew was in­cor­rectly named as Michael. The re­port also stated that bags of caus­tic soda were found at Lee’s prop­erty fol­low­ing his death when in fact cit­ric acid had been found.

We are happy to set the record straight.
