Have your say

I like electricity. I would hate to go back to the days of heating the iron on the fire and consequently having to spend hours on the task that today takes a couple of hours a week, or having to put curling tongs in the fire to heat up before being able to curl or singe your hair. We are so lucky to have the electrical gadgets we have today and boy do we take them for granted.

What do we do when fossil fuels run out? Fossil fuels are burnt in power stations to generate electricity. Fossil fuels are a finite resource; once used, there will be no more. What then?

We teach our children that renewable energies are the future, their future – wind power, solar power, tidal power. So what happens when a planning application is made for five wind turbines at Temple Hill ... protests, protests, protests. Personally, I believe that our children are worth a little sacrifice on our part, they deserve to have the luxuries that we take for granted – lights, irons, curling tongs etc! I would even go a step further and say that the turbines themselves are majestic works of art.

I, for one, fully support the proposal. I know I am not alone and ask that before you object just take a moment to think about the world you want your children and grandchildren to grow up in.
