Stuart Dainton from the village told ITV Central:

"It's been a fantastic project really from The People's Millions. It's really brought the community together.

We've got a legacy of income for the next 25 years, generating electricity, that'll give us money for the community on a whole raft of other projects. This would never have happened without The People's Millions, it's been a great project to get everybody galvanised."
