WE are writing in response to the articles in The Hunts Post regarding the turbine threat to the Nene Valley Gliding Club.

As members of the local community, we are always looking for different and exciting opportunities for the region's young people. One such activity was held last weekend when we had the second of two very successful days out, taking 12 scouts and two leaders up into the air.

It would be a shame for such a well-run facility to have to close due to the issues laid out in The Hunts Post - in relation to the disruption of air flow caused by the proposed wind turbines - and we hope that we can take more scout troops to the gliding club over the coming months and years.

Finally, we would very much like to thank Michael, Steve, Richard and Ian at the club for a very enjoyable day out.
