*Sand drawing with pebbles. Each pebble will represent one of the thousands of radioactive particles found and retrieved by the nuclear industry’s ‘Monitoring and Retrieval’ program. There is of course no way of knowing how many radioactive particles are not ‘found’.
*Leafletting * placing Radioactive Beach Warning Signs
*Protective clothing, gloves etc used by us on the day will be taken to Sellafield as potential Radioactive Waste. People should come along at their own risk - children are more vulnerable to harm from ingestion/inhalation of alpha radioactive particles

Walk Moorcide -Europes Biggest Nastiest Extreme Energy Plan
JOIN US ON 10th August 2014 meet at 10am Beckermet, The Royal Oak.
The walk will take around 2 hours, approximately 5 miles For those who do not want to do the whole walk we will be returning to The Royal Oak Beckermet to have a bite to eat and discuss what we have seen.
From the Lake District National Park towards the coast, you can look down across the lowland area and your eyes meet the obscene atomic carbuncle called Sellafield. The industry with funding from our nuclear obsessed government want to add at least two vast new reactors and the loading station for tens of thousands of radioactive waste packages for a vast underground nuclear dump.
Recent press coverage suggests that Moorside is a fait accompli. This is what the industry and our nuclear fanatical government would dearly like people to believe in order to stop opposition.
Opposition is however the only sane option to new build adjacent to Sellafield.
