BARRY Garwood of Burwell is absolutely right. The National Trust's so-called Wicken Vision is looked upon locally as a complete and utter farce and, whilst I acknowledge that the Trust does a good job nationally with its stately homes, etc., it is all too clear to us here that its people are letting fine food-growing land go to rack and ruin. Their so-called Vision will soon see a mass infestation of brambles, elder bushes, flies, mosquitoes, ragwort, stinging nettles and thistles, for those are what flourish and follow from not farming our Fens. Those folk who know about land in my area don't believe that the Trust is capable of running this project.

Government and National Lottery funding for this nonsensical waste of the natural resources of Cambridgeshire should be cut off now and the misguided do-gooders who still support the scheme should realise that they are on to an all-time loser!
