last night, we secured a campsite for the Reclaim Hinkley camp this weekend. We are looking forward to seeing you at the camp and/or at the march in Bridgwater tomorrow. With this newsletter, we give you some last updates.
Contacting us over the Reclaim Hinkley weekend

Directions to the camp
For people with SATNAV: head for postcode TA5 1UD. Yes this is the powerstation's postcode!
Head out of Bridgwater on the A39 signposted Minehead and Exmoor. When you reach the roundabout at Cannington go straight on through the village of Cannington. Just after the road bears round to the left you will come to a right hand turning with a war memorial in the middle of the turning, take this turning - it should be signposted, Stogursey, Combwich, and Hinkley Point. Follow this road as if you are going all the way to the power station (approx 5 miles), the turning will be on your right just after the development site entrance on your left called HPC 3 which has EDFs new security station on it.
A map is available at http://stopnewnuclear.org.uk/reclaimhinkley/camp.
There will be a transport line from 11am Friday morning (don't ring it before!) 07874-819608
there will be a shuttle service operating roughly every hour between bridgwater and the camp from Friday lunch time until the evening, and also saturday between the camp and the protest in Bridgwater where a service will also be provided to get people to the die-in at Hinkley on saturday afternoon. Shuttles between Bridgwater and the camp will resume on Sunday morning and operate throughout the day probably two hourly(ish) as public transport is a bit less frequent here on Sundays.
Transport to the Bridgwater march on Saturday
So far there are coaches coming from London, Manchester, Bristol, Bath & Glastonbury, and also a car share from Bridport with other transports in the pipeline, so please read on at http://stopnewnuclear.org.uk/reclaimhinkley/transport.
If you don't see a transport coming from your area then you can arrange to offer or share a lift through the go car share website page http://gocarshare.com/other/464-stop-new-nuclear-reclaim-hinkley
