Are electric cars really the cars of the future? According to a report published this week by Bloomberg New Energy Finance “Electric vehicles are on track to accelerate to 54 per cent of new car sales by 2040.” And today (July 24) the government are publicising plans to make us all generators of electricity.
Commander Charles Heron-Watson, secretary and chief executive of the Royal Merchant Navy Education Foundation based in Hungerford and who lives in Ramsbury, is a strong supporter of the electric car.
Vanessa Lafaye lives in Marlborough with her husband, founded the town's Community Choir - and writes novels. Her first published novel, Summertime, was a run away success - described as 'a cracking first novel', it was chosen as a Richard and Judy Book Club title: "It sold a lot."
Now she has published her second novel - At First Light. Like Summertime it is based around a true and terrible story and is set in Florida (where she was brought up.)
