The regional meeting starts at 11.00hrs, and the AGM at 14,00hrs with a lunch break between the two, and our secretary (see below) can advise on what food is available. All individual BN members living in the region are welcome to attend, and member clubs and swims can send a representative.
    This is an important meeting as apart from other matters, several posts including secretary, regional coordinator, and members rep either are vacant or will become so in the near future. If the region is to continue to function, volunteers for these roles are needed.

    There is a large car park at the sports centre which is free up to one hour and £1 for up to two hours. These parking restrictions are strictly enforced by number-plate recognition cameras and pool staff cannot override the system. Payments should be made at the machine at the entrance.

    This event repeats every week on Sunday until 17/12/17


    Naturist London is a group of volunteers whose aim is to promote drop-in, inclusive naturist events in London with administrative support from BN. The regular Sunday Swim is our signature event and extremely popular. It is just like going to an ordinary public swimming pool except that costumes are banished. Unlike many traditional naturist venues, there is no booking, no membership and no commitment. You are welcome to just turn up whether or not you consider yourself a committed naturist.
    Approximately once a month, BN member Emma James comes along to help with the swim and coordinate a pre-swim meet up for ladies. She also plans to organise, less frequently, an extended social programme around the swim to make a "day out in London" for those who have to travel some distance. You can contact Emma and get more details by following this link to the Naturist London Ladies Zone.
    We look forward to seeing you at Naturist London. Further details can be found here.

    17 July 2017 16:00 - 17 July 2017 18:30

    A Naturist Visit to Houghton Lodge Gardens,
    near Stockbridge in Hampshire
    Naked Southampton and the London and South East Region of British Naturism, have arranged a visit to Houghton Lodge Gardens on Monday 17th July from 17.00 – 19.30hrs. The gardens are alongside the River Test, in a beautiful setting, and are an ideal place to enjoy some outdoor Naturism.
    Admission at the entrance is £6.50. Children over 3yrs cost £3 (must be accompanied by an adult). As we have to collect the money I’m afraid its cash only, and no cards.
    The visit is not just for BN members, so you can tell your Naturist friends about it. Please note that this is a Naturist and not a clothes optional event.
    You cannot bring your own food and drink into the gardens or associated buildings, but it can be eaten in the non-Naturist parking area. There is a cafe, which will be open until 18.00hrs, at our request for teas, coffee’s and other soft drinks. There also will be cakes and biscuits available to buy on the night and some panini. They can do quiche with cheese, salad, bread and pickles, tea/coffee for £6.50, but this needs to be ordered in advance and paid for via myself (John Rodgers), at least two weeks before the visit. I need to have your requirements and the money by Monday 3rd July. Please don’t forget that towels are required to sit on in cafe.
    Dogs on short leads are allowed in the gardens. However any waste must be picked up, and taken off site. There are no disposal bins at the gardens.
    For any further information in respect of our visit please contact Regional Representative John Rodgers on 07914 186466 or email lserep@bn.org.uk . Full contact details are in the B.N magazine. You can also visit the gardens website for more information about them. http://houghtonlodge.co.uk/
    The full address is Houghton Lodge Gardens, Houghton, Stockbridge, Hampshire, SO20 6LQ
