A Naturist Evening to Celebrate the Spring Equinox
As Naturists we look forward to the arrival of spring and the promise of sunny days and warm weather in the months to come. Therefore the Spring Equinox seems seems like a good time to have get together and socialise over a simple meal.
The Four Seasons Club which is situated near Henfield, West Sussex, have agreed to allow me to hold the evening to celebrate the Spring Equinox at their club from 7pm on Friday 21st March. They will provide bread and soup, and a burger, for £4.50 a person. Please advise when booking if you want a veggie burger. There will be a choice of sweets. Tea and coffee will be available, but otherwise attendees will need to bring there own drinks.
There will be music, and the sauna will also be available.
The evening is open to individual BN members, and those in BN member clubs. Numbers are limited and booking must be done in advance, and is on a first come first served basis. Bookings will close on March 18th, or earlier if full. To book your place or ask any question about the event, please contact me on 01403 258258, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This just in from the Naturist Action Group:-
NAG Supporters will be aware that we (and many other organisations) have been campaigning hard against the definition of “Antisocial Behaviour” in the Antisocial Behaviour Crime & Policing Bill, currently before Parliament. This definition as originally drafted read:
‘…conduct capable of causing nuisance or annoyance to any person’
The good news is that common sense emerged today when The Lords amended this definition today to; ‘ …conduct that has caused, or likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to any person…’
This makes the Bill much less likely to be used against naturists than the original too wide wording, which played in to the hands of prudish authoritarians. Though not perfect, ‘harassment, alarm and distress’ is a well known legal formula, and a stronger test than mere ‘nuisance or annoyance’.
We can congratulate ourselves in playing our part in achieving this change, and NAG’s thanks go to all the individuals who have actually done something to help.
The bad news is that when the Bill returns to the Commons this could be reversed again (which the Government would like to do). So we must keep up the pressure in all respects, on MPs., Lords , and all aspects of Public Opinion. And don’t let up until it becomes Law. If you value your naturist freedom, keep campaigning!
Sorry folks for the delay but we are still awaiting delivery of a new printer – am chasing it and will start printing as soon as it arrives but it will take a few days before they can be posted as they also have to be assembled by hand – tedious and hard work.
Due to technical problems (printer failure) we will not be able to post these out for at least another 10 days whilst waiting for a new printer to be delivered – then it takes time to print and then put together.
December 3 Our first Meet and Greet at The Roebuck Inn, West Street, Harrietsham, Maidstone, Kent ME17 1HX.
This is an opportunity for naturists to get together during the winter months and bring a non naturist friend/family member or for people who want to try naturism to get to know a few people before their first naturist event as this is not a clothing optional evening – clothes must be worn.
If you wish to book a table for a meal the number is 01622 858 388. We chose this venue because it should be easy to find – Harrietsham is just off the A20 between Maidstone and Ashford and there is a station just a few minutes walk from the pub. We will be there from about 6.30pm. We have tried the food and can recommend the sharing starter – it was so large that we had problems in eating our main course.
It’s tomorrow – will you be there?

This event – originally scheduled for 29th June – has been cancelled, pending formal discussions with the City of London Corporation.
The picnic was intended to be a ‘proof of concept’ demonstration that naturism on Hampstead Heath and other large open spaces in London could work. However, following an exchange of letters between myself and Sue Ireland, Director of Open Spaces for the Corporation, and the acceptance of an offer for discussions, I feel that it would be inappropriate for the event to continue. I am sorry to disappoint anyone, but hope you’ll understand that NAG is doing this for the greater good of naturism in London and as a whole.
Your co-operation would be appreciated by not attending on 29th or the alternative date provided in case of poor weather, and by re-posting this message to other forums and message boards so that this information is broadcast as widely as possible.
Chairman, Naturist Action Group
It’s this Saturday, that’s tomorrow evening. 1 June 2013 at 6 PM.
