The Ropetackle Centre in Shoreham-by-Sea was so packed, on the evening of Tuesday 12th June, that people had to be turned away from a free talk on archaeological finds during the construction of the Rampion project.
There was a varied audience, including seasoned archaeologists and complete novices.
Green party members heard that, by this autumn, Rampion will be able to supply enough local, non-carbon energy to power half the homes in Sussex - including Brighton and Hove!
There's also a 10 Year commitment to repairing the scar on the South Downs landscape where the cable was laid.
We were very impressed by the knowledgeable speakers and enjoyed the presentation.
Rampion wind farm is generating much goodwill, as well as clean electricity, by its commitments to heritage, landscape and community funding. £3.1 million is set aside for community projects, with sustainability a key feature of awards so far.
