Back on the blog

It's been a while since anything was put on this blog site. We have been busy elsewhere, (apologies for that) but now we are trying to update it a little more regularly.
2015 has seen Archie generate his 1,000,000th kWh.
Added to that, Torrs Hydro is more than half way through repaying its loan.
It takes commitment and hard work to run a community project like ours and we have a great, dedicated team, but this year we have been able to welcome some new volunteers! This ensures we have the support we need to keep generating clean, green electricity.

A good start to 2014

With large parts of the country receiving lots of rain you wont be surprised to read that Archie has had a good month - the 4th best on record.

Look out for info on the upcoming AGM and a list of open days for the rest of the year.

Halloween at the Hydro

Torr weir looked very spooky last night as New Mills celebrated Halloween with pumpkin competitions and lots of fancy dress going on.

New Mills Festival '13 - round and round and round

A really busy busy time of year for New Mills - the festival starts tomorrow (Friday 13th) and Archie is involved in two events.

First of all tomorrow afternoon local schools will be on site from 3pm to create a new film for White Van Man's famous song about Archie - then later in the month there is an open day on 28th of September and Archie will also be nicely lit up on the evening of the lantern parade.
