A perfect kids’ Christmas party today, with pool games, a superb disco and LOTS of great vegetarian food too! To top it all we had a visit from the REAL Father Christmas who was in a holly festooned grotto. An amazingly successful afternoon, as evidenced by the procession of tired children at the end of the day! Huge thanks to all who organised for their hard work in pulling this event off. The children will remember today for a very long time – it was pure magic! The date is already set for next year, but for now there is a full report of today on the members’ area of the website.
Our penchant for serving up great BBQ food knows no bounds, and anyone who has been at the club when Uncle Ken is cooking up a tasty meat feast will know that his marinated & seared chicken thighs and crisply cooked sausages are the talk of the lawn! With no less than four BBQ grill plates to make use of at anyone time, the much revered BBQ stand is often the place to meet with fellow Diogenes members and enjoy a cheeky beer or nicely chilled Chardonay whilst the “man, meat, fire” process takes place.
If you haven’t been fortunate enough to sample the smoked delights served piping hot from the griddle, then keep an eye out for the publicised club events held during the summer months, there’s sure to be an occasion when we can’t resist wheeling out the colourful BBQ sign board to help Uncle Ken make the most of some fine outdoor cooking in the warmer months!
For those folks who haven’t yet visited the club, why not submit your trial visit application form now? See the Join link in the left hand side menu ….
At the turn of the year with everyone feeling the need to get fit and reverse the excesses of the festive period, naturist swim clubs around the country are offering a discount to encourage newcomers to give naturist swim sessions a try.
A spokesman for British Naturism the UK’s national organisation for naturists, who are co-ordinating the scheme, said:
“People may raise their eyebrows at the idea of mixed gender nude swimming sessions in the UK, but opportunities to do so have existed for decades, with many thousands of people up and down the country regularly attending. It only takes 5 minutes to get used to being nude amongst others, and anyone who has been skinny-dipping will know what a relaxing, liberating feeling it is to swim without a costume. Naturism is a very sociable activity and you are sure to make new friends – and keep fit at the same time. Take off your costume and we’ll will take money off your entrance fee!
Diogenes Sun Club will be taking part in this initiative throughout January & February 2012. Check back regularly for further news updates.
