I hope that you are all coping with our English Summer, I know I have been colder some days and nights lately than in Winter, oh and the rain and we still don’t have enough water to go around.
I entered the scary world of North Dorset Planning Committee and it was a real eye opener.
How we are going to marry the needs of the many to those of well meaning small groups ? I just do not know ! Whilst respecting everyone’s right to have their say, at some stage there has to be a notion “For the good of all the Community”
North Dorset’s approach to Sustainability and our targets for renewable energy leave us languishing far behind other Counties in Britiain who are doing more than their fair share.
Its time we in Dorset stood up and opened our eyes to the responsibility we all share and the need for greater emphasis on renewable energy.
To do this we need groups, communities to work with planners, project installers, funders so that together they can create their own local sustainable projects that all add towards the collective good of our Countries commitments.
The time is now, get involved take a look at Dorset Energized, support your local Stur Valley Energy Group but above all do something.
Please pass this message onto anyone you know, light up our County and make us top of the UK league not bottom.
On another point if anyone knows of a chill display unit that they don’t want or use Gold Hill Organics would love to hear from them. They have a project to turn more of their wonderful Veggies and sales into ready to use servings.
You can get their contact number and address by going to our Food Map,they would be really pleased to hear from you,
Best Wishes, Vince
