A big thank you to Lorna and her team for organising the coffee morning on Wednesday. Over £270 was raised a brilliant result and some delicious cakes!!
Unfortunately the Cotton Farm Appeal by npower was granted this week. Bev Gray and his team put up a great fight. It would appear the Inspector had a very subjective view and the opinions of the local community were not considered relevent.
Some of the Action Group Committee attended the Titchmarsh Parish Council Meeting last night to listen to one of the local residents object to the npower proposal of a wind farm at Bythorn and Molesworth. There were around 20 interested parties to listen to his presentation and to the Parish Council debate various proposals. There was a vote by Titchmarsh Parish Council to oppose the current proposal by npower, (5 voting for the proposal opposing the wind farm, 2 voting against the proposal put forward by the Parish Council and 2 abstentions) resulting with the council opposing the proposed wind farm development.
Thank you to everyone for all their suppport in this campaign so far. Have a happy Christmas and come back refreshed in the New Year when we expect the planning application to be submitted.

Just to make you all aware of the following items-
1. Coffee Morning at Bythorn Village Hall on Wednesday 15th December from 10.00am to 12 noon. Serving delicious tea, coffee and home made goodies. Cakes for sale and an amazing raffle. Take a break from Christmas shopping and have a cup of coffee and a chat. Members of the Action Group Committee will be there to chat to. If any village would like to host a fund raising event or would like us to hold an event in your village please contact me (details below).
2. The Web Site now has photos of our trip to the Milton Keynes wind farm near Olney under the Gallery Heading. There is also a list of organisations you can write to to ask for their support under the Contacts Heading and information on how to help financially under the Support Heading.
3. Donít forget the application for the wind farm at Woolley Hill near Ellington has been submitted to the planners at HDC. Please write to object against this proposal. Their planning reference is 1001741FUL and you can submit comments on the HDC website http://planning.huntsdc.gov.uk/PublicAccess/tdc/DcApplication/application_detailview.aspx?caseno=LB261ZIK00S00 or write to the Planning Officer Jennie Parsons, HDC, Pathfinder House, St Marys Street, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, PE29 3TN or email her on Jennie.Parsons@huntsdc.gov.uk
I hope there will be no further emails before Christmas unless npower submit their planning application in the next few days. We will keep you posted and any information we receive. Have a very happy Christmas and wish you all the best for the New Year.
