A small acorn – message from a supporter

In 1994 as a Production Manager for Taylor Woodrow’s Wind Energy Group (WEG), I set up a prototyping wind turbine blade factory in Southampton with 6 other staff. Our successful wood epoxy technology grew and grew the business until, shortly after I left WEG, the company that is now Vestas Wind Systems bought the business and moved it to the Isle of Wight creating the highly successful plant that it has now decided to close.
I am devastated that the small acorn I and 6 others planted in 1994 that grew into such a mighty oak on the Island has now been so brutally felled. Your protest has caught the spirit of the country and although you are no longer there, the sacrifices you made will have a lasting legacy. Indeed, in spirit at least, the boys on the balcony are still standing strong.
All the very best.
