100 people attend our public meeting

Mary Gillie explains the ideas for the microgrid to a packed hall Left to right: Mary, Roy, Garry, Steve, Ged, Laura count the votes over a beer at the golden lion 
We were delighted with the turnout to our public meeting last week. Around 100 people filled the hall of the Primary School to hear about the project, this year's carbon survey and progress on the community shop project and new renewable heating system for the school. Thanks to Head, Rob Ford, for allowing us to use the school, the guys from Leapfrog who came up from London and to everyone who helped to make the evening a success. We also asked people to 'vote' on whether we should go ahead and find out more about building a microgrid and had a 45:1 vote in favour of the idea.

Its amazing what you are doing, not just the work towards being carbon neutral but the ability to work together.

I am doing similar, but on my own. Solar water and PV panels, wind turbines, grey water and loads of insulation. But the fight to do this! Council planning office refusing permission for solar PV, despite no overlooking neighbours and selection of solar slates - at extra cost! A local Parish Council that refuses to support anything they don't initiate. Apart from that, very supportive neighbours.

Perhaps I should move to Ashton Hayes!
