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 organising visits to clubs, beaches and, if you are going on holiday, why not suggest others join you at that location?

Spielplatz – apart from offering a generous discount Spielplatz is inviting our subscribers to participate in events throughout the season. If you wish to camp, please book early. To obtain the discount you MUST have your VALID Shabden membership card with you and show it on each visit. All visits (whether Shabden or not) must be prebooked. Website for more information.
