One thought on “How to Help

  1. Although I don’t live in the immediate area, as a grandmother, I am extremely concerned about the proposed solar farms. It seems local and national government think the green belt is dispensable, but in my view it is a food factory.

    The more green belt we destroy means we have to import more, which will potentially make Britain vulnerable to price increases from suppliers.

    Surely we should be putting solar panels on rooves, wind turbines off shore and housing estates on brown field sites. I live in Kettering and have family in and around Cambridge all of whom will indirectly be affected in one way or another. Good luck with your campaign.

    Best wishes,
    Pauline Radley
