As I understand it, a solar farm can still be 'farmed'. Apparently, sheep farming can still be undertaken as the sheep graze between and under the panels. Also, again apparently, ewes like to lamb in the shelter created beneath the panels. Seems an ideal solution for struggling hill farmers...if their fields face the right direction. I imagine that free range chicken farming would ...

What the hell is happening to our town? It's okay though - they both had traumatic childhoods.

Anything happen? No. I know the EA have to put their umbrella up and warn people that something 'might' happen.

Apparently, before the brook was 'canalised' (if that's a word!), fishermen used to pull their boats up outside the White Hart. If the seawall goes for good maybe that'll happen again.

Don't forget all of the Sheltered Housing Schemes who have had their Warden funding removed! This policy is just not 'joined up' - Give it 2 years tops and the DCC housing for older people policy will be in absolute turmoil! There is no doubt that some older people will suffer and even die from this. DCC should be ashamed of themselves!

Oh, okay then! So someone who is not contibuting can get a new boiler whilst those of us paying for it can't afford one? Great policy - well enjoy your new boiler. I'll just wrap myself in my old sleeping bag and continue to cut logs if I can find them!!!

It really doesn't matter where the money is coming from (after all it is ours!) - It could be spent more wisely on essential services.
