"When the work's done it's fantastic what the residents have got; nice warm homes at competitive prices whereas before they used to pay fortunes for a fire to try and warm their place and the fire couldn't warm it anyway. But there are absolutely no complaints from anybody regarding it. It's just fantastic what's going on here.
"It's also helped the unemployment in the area because there's no work in Jaywick. Ice Energy coming along and employing the young people they've taken on and training them is the good thing because nobody's really got much time to train young people. I'm grateful for this because anything that gets employment down here is marvellous."
