Happy Earth Day!

Posted: April 22, 2010 by defendhuntingtonlane in Uncategorized

Happy Earth Day folks! Apologies for the lack of recent updates, we’ve all been quite busy!

We had the usual swelling of numbers over last weekend, with several people taking advantage of our ‘shuttle service’ between Wellington and the camp. The clement weather allowed us to improve our kitchen facilities and erect another massive communal tee-pee as our other ones are now occupied 🙂 .

On Tuesday we has a visit from the prospective parlimentary candidate of the Liberal Democrats, Ali Cameron-Daw, for the Wrekin constituency. She appeared to be very on side and took a great deal of interest in the health and bounderies issues raised by the planned mine.

With many projects underway and more glorious weather on the cards, if you haven’t visited the camp already (or even if you have) this weekend is shaping up to be a fantastic one for spending in the woods 😉

A new regularly updated wish list page will shortly be available in the links at the top of the page.

Many thanks for your continued support and we hope to see you soon 🙂

    Posting news about ‘what a nice day it has been’ is not the point, it is more important to post what you have done and about to do. And the meeting tonight

    I have visited the camp a number of times and spoken to Chris and others. During my last visit on 24/04/2010 I explained with the aid of printed sheets how the cause could get more publicity. I do not have the time to do the leg work, but everything on my printed sheets (I will soon be posting the sheet on my support website http://www.ukcoalwreckswrekin.co.uk) is doable. It requires all participants of the camp to pull together and get on with the project.

    Almost every member of the public I have spoken to has no idea what is going on at New Works, most do not even know there could be open cast mining, that includes talking to individuals within a few miles.

    You may not agree with my views or they may not in your opinion be relevant. While the camp appears to be in disarray and non-united, it does not give visitors the impression that the camp in general is serious in its intentions. UK Coal could move in within the next three weeks and I do not see anything that could make any difference

    I hope to see some individuals I have met at the camp at tonight’s (Monday 26/04.10) meeting at Little Wenlock Church Hall at 7:30
