GBSD Swim Night at Diogenes

With a second GBSD (Great British Skinny Dip) night being held at Diogenes Sun Club, there were no shortage of willing members happy to attend and help provide a comfortable and friendly atmosphere for those who were brave enough to take that first step and turn up to our wonderful sun club.

With an opportunity to swim naked in our superb indoor pool, those members of the public who chose to shed their inhibitions and visit Diogenes, enjoyed another good evening at the South East’s premier all year round naturist club.

Diogenes Sun Club is helping British Naturism host the nationwide GBSD events throughout January, February and early March.  Intended in part, as a means of kick-starting new interest in joining a sun club, the GBSD events are an ideal way of helping UK naturist clubs promote themselves by taking part in the national event (when their facilities permit this).

As our attendance figures show, there is still a healthy interest in joining a naturist club, and when you have one with so many excellent facilities available, the only real decision you have to make is “… when can I come again?”.  Diogenes is currently seeking new members, why not contact us today and request your trial visit soonest?

Valentine Supper Evening at Diogenes Sun Club

Despite the arctic weather and a good sprinkling of snow thrown in beforehand, the Valentine event evening went ahead as planned.  Event stalwarts made the pilgrimage to Costco to stock up on the decorations/chocolates/table-cloths etc etc, and then proceeded to set-up the main lounge in readiness for the evening’s supper party.

Decorations took the theme of red love hearts and roses, and with the judicious positioning of a few choice ballons here and there, the scene was set for a good evening.  With no less than 34 members having booked a place, the Chef’s were tasked with creating a supper menu to delight, and they didn’t disappoint.  The starters were very well received and once the main courses started to appear it was apparent that the Chef’s had been prepared to excel themselves.  Serving up either a stuffed chicken breast en-croute with seasonal vegetables, or a herb encrusted salmon fillet with dauphinoise potatoes the diners were soon making in-roads in to clearing their plates with gusto.

The food was excellent throughout, and it was to strong applause that the kitchen took their thanks for having laid on such a superb evening meal.  With desserts aplenty to choose from, and fresh ground coffee with a Lindt chocolate to round off the meal, there were no complaints about the value for money aspect of the affair.

In keeping with true Diogenes style, a raffle was in place, and to ensure that the evening made it’s mark, we created a superb gourmet hamper holding a fabulous Valentine meal for two.  Coquilles St-Jacques, Rib-Eye steaks, fresh vegetables, a delicious heart of strawberrys with double cream, and rounded off with a book of chocolates and a bottle of sparkling pink Cava.

The generosity of the members ensured that every ticket for the super prize was snapped up, and the top notch hamper ensured that we raised a cracking £100.00 for the children’s new play equipment fund.

There was also a further raffle for donated prizes and this in turn added an additional £46.00 to the help boost the club’s funds.  With entertainment coming from our resident magician and entertainer, the tables were treated to a close up display of magic tricks, which was well received by those who were up close and personal to the sleight of hand action.  The main act for the evening was Diogenes very own Mr & Mrs show, with a vigorous grilling of the three willing pairs to answer some very searching and revealing questions about their respective partners.

Contestant No 1, we are so pleased that you decided to share your partner’s recent lingerie purchase with us, but we do wonder whether there should have been quite so much “detail” included ….

However, your daring paid off, and you ultimately picked up the winners prize.

Finishing off the evening with an amusing stand up display of the disappearing bandana (or should that read banana?), and a risky operation to avoid slicing off the hands of members as they were handcuffed inside a guillotine of dubious repute.  The audience were chuckling with mirth as the display also included an invisible pack of cards which magically held the correct two of hearts as chosen by a member of the audience – amazing!

For anyone reading this, please note that whilst we are a true family orientated naturist club, evening events of this nature are textile (we do like to dress up too you know!).  If you would like to join in the fun, why not consider contacting us today and enquire about a free trial visit to our wonderful club?

Children’s Play Equipment Upgrade

Diogenes is investing for the future with a recent Committee agreement to replace and upgrade the children’s play equipment.  With one or two pieces of old equipment beginning to look a little tired, the member’s and current Committee wanted to ensure that we gave prospective family members with younger children, every good reason to join Diogenes Sun Club this coming season.

Due to be installed this first quarter, we are removing the tired old swing and monkey bridge climbing frame, and installing some brand new child friendly climbing and activity equipment for the youngsters.  With its modular approach we will now be able to add to this system as funds permit and ensure that the club continues to improve its facilities for families with younger children.  Even the sandpit is to get a freshen up and have all of the two tonnes of sand replaced anew! With such a delight for the kiddies, there’s no need to venture to the nearest beach, Diogenes has it all here.

Why not make an appointment to come visit us soonest?  With lots of naturist facilities for both adults and children of all ages, Diogenes Sun Club should be your first choice for family naturism in the South East of England.
