My first post in July is to mention an event on the 1st August which is the opening of the Lissett Wind Farm. The wind farm company (Novera Energy) are combining their official opening with the village fete.
Lissett is the newest, largest and nearest wind farm to me and as a lover of wind power I can't wait to go and get up close to the turbines. The idea is to take pictures and later turn them into some artwork.
Novera Energy kindly sent me some photos to give me a more detailed look at the site before the opening. The wind farm is on the site of Lissett Airfield which was home to bomber crew 158 Squadron and in the photo supplied to me you can see the wonderful memorial in tribute to the men of that squadron.
