Standing Stones


We 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 my continuing mobility problems I really could do with some help with organising some visits both 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 £2.50 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.

Spielplatz – apart from offering a generous discount Spielplatz is inviting our subscribers to participate in events throughout the season. If you wish to book accommodation, or to camp, please book early as people are booking earlier. To obtain the discount you MUST have your VALID Shabden membership card with you and show it on each visit.
