Thank you 

Thank you to everyone who attended our beach event on Sunday - over 600 people joined together to make our human wall at Sizewell and we made the local news.

It was an amazing sight to see and shows that it doesn't matter where you live or what you do - together we can try to make a difference and stand up to this unthinkable development.

Among the many significant impacts of Sizewell C, few people know that EDF’s rock armour sea defences – the “wall” – would bury a huge part of the much-loved Sizewell beach along with its rare plants and insects.

To save Sizewell beach we need to stop Sizewell C; and key to this is raising awareness of what would be lost.

This event was co-organised by Stop Sizewell C, Together Against Sizewell C and Suffolk Coastal Friends of the Earth - and was a huge success!
 

CRAIG BENNETT, our former CEO and now Chief of the Wildlife Trust, came to Suffolk just before lockdown. He debated 'Why Sizewell C?' with ADAM ROWLANDS, RSPB Suffolk Area Manager and BEN McFARLAND, Conservation Manager of Suffolk Wildlife Trust. 

Craig fell in love with our beautiful coastline, in particular Minsmere bird reserve, after staying in a friend's cottage in Dunwich.  He is appalled by the catastrophic impact on our wildlife reserves if Sizewell C new nuclear power station were to be built.

    Adam explained why water levels are so crucial for the successful breeding of Minsmere's rare birds.  He is deeply concerned that the proposed construction works, directly adjacent to Minsmere, will affect those levels.

    We showed our video: 'Sizewell's Threatened Wildlife'.  The event was a good success with a full house at Halesworth's The Cut.
