    I cannot for the life of me see why all this fuss is being made.

    The goat farm and Mr Hunt’s turbines have blended into the countryside, with no noise or disturbance to the village.

    It amazes me to think people can be stupid enough to believe that property prices will drop because of them. Prices would be dropping all over the countryside if this were true, and Seaton Ross seems to have been selling well this year.

    I have lived in Seaton Ross for over 30 years and my husband has lived here for 50 years of his 72 years of life, and are pleased that some villagers are doing their share for the future generations
