SLC are always planning ahead. Please let us know if you would like a visit to anywhere, if you can arrange a visit or even invite members to your home to use your garden or have a barbecue. Let’s work together to meet as many other members as possible. Because of Suzanne’s continuing mobility problems we really could do with some help with organising some visits to clubs, beaches and perhaps if you are going on holiday why not suggest others join you at that location?
Monthly – Camping weekend at Bower Valley, Kent. Basic site, with a wood to explore and time to relax. £4 for a tent/caravan or motor home plus £3 per person per night. All proceeds are donated to Rolvenden Cat Rescue.
There is a café a short walk away within World of Water for those who do not want to do all their own cooking. These weekends are exclusively for Shabden members/NL subscribers, please contact Sue for dates.
Spielplatz – apart from offering a generous discount Spielplatz is inviting our subscribers to participate in events throughout the season.
