Here at the No to Wolds Wind Farm Group we already consider this area an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) but it has yet to be officially recognised as such.

    Thank you from Shropshire!

    I would like to express a very heartfelt thank you to everyone that has sent in their congratulations to VORTEX following the dismissal of Nuon’s appeal against the refusal of permission to build 7 massive turbines in the middle of our community. We have received hundreds of thank-you letters and congratulatory e-mails – and I have also received a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a hamper. THANK YOU everyone – it has been a pleasure to work with the community . . .
