On 15 September we'll be hosting the first-ever Love Minsmere Festival, to celebrate the reserve, its rare wildlife and to send a powerful message to EDF that we all Love Minsmere and want to see it protected from the impacts of Sizewell C.
Earlier this year, over 20,000 people like you emailed EDF Energy telling them why they must protect RSPB Minsmere nature reserve in their plans to build a new twin-nuclear reactor, which will bring the Sizewell estate right up to the border of this wildlife haven. The RSPB does not believe Sizewell is a suitable position for a new nuclear power station and we are yet to see the evidence in full which shows that wildlife and the reserve will be protected from the potential detrimental environmental impacts of Sizewell C. Now, during the fourth stage of public consultation, we want you to come down to the reserve so we can collectively declare to EDF that we all Love Minsmere.
We will be offering free entry on the day for everyone who RSVPs through Eventbrite and hosting a range of fun family activities and guided walks for everyone to enjoy. To add a party atmosphere we will be joined by a variety of local food and drink stalls who are also passionate about protecting Minsmere. The climax of the day will be at 1pm when we will all come together with one act of solidarity.
We need to communicate the Love Minsmere message to EDF Energy in a powerful and clear way. To carry this out we will be creating the outline of the Love Minsmere love heart on Whin Hill at 1pm, one of the reserve’s most amazing viewpoints with the Sizewell estate in the background. To make this performance a successful and powerful visual reminder to EDF that we Love Minsmere, we need you, and 999 other Love Minsmere campaigners, to come down and take part.
