Family Open Day at Dalry and Millour Hill Community Wind Farms

Crowds at the Open Day

Community Windpower Ltd had a fabulous, fun filled Family Open Day at Dalry and Millour Hill Community Wind Farms, near Dalry, North Ayrshire on Saturday 14th June, where over 1,800 people attended.

Throughout the day the wind farm was bustling with visitors exploring the wind farm, participating in different activities including the Outdoor Climbing Wall, bouncy castles, children’s ride and inflatable slide plus guided tours of the wind farm. The face painting was a highly popular attraction with the children, along with the guided tractor rides around the wind farm in the glorious sun, allowing the visitors to get even closer to the turbines.

The area surrounding the marquee was full of activity with a variety of stands and stalls from local crafts and local produce, through to ice cream from the Lime Tree Larder and charities including the NA Foodbank, Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA), Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue Trust and fundraising games for all the family. The Owl Display by Hoots Forever Home was also popular and attracted a lot of attention.

Inside the marquee was just as busy as outside, with visitors learning about the two wind farms, BeGreen Dalry and other local projects and as popular as ever with the children was Ranger Pete, who had a brilliant exhibit of local children’s artwork kindly provided by Dalry Out Of School Care.

The BBQ and complementary hot and cold drinks queue was never ending throughout the day, and raised over £500 for the North Ayrshire Foodbank, thanks to donations by visitors to the event.

Overall the whole day was an enormous success in terms of the weather, the turnout of visitors and the stalls/entertainment available on the day. Community Windpower Ltd would like to thank everyone who attended and made the Family Open Day such a successful and wonderful day.
